Given the importance of sexual transmission in the HIV epidemic, many HIV prevention strategies have focused on identifying and promoting safer-sex practices. As the name implies, these practices are thought to be "safer" than other sexual practices in that they help reduce but do not necessarily eliminate the risk of transmitting HIV from one sexual partner to another. Clinicians and health educators often have the unique opportunity to discuss topics of an intimate nature in a professional setting.
