They have instead faced various criticisms over some of their preventive strategies, particularly the use of condoms, stigma, fear, and misinformation. Some of their messages, which usually emphasize premarital abstinence and marital fidelity, often clash with secular emphasis on safer sex. Most of the literature on the role of FBOs in dealing with the HIV/AIDS crisis is scarce and primarily addresses the influence of religious beliefs and organizational structures on HIV/AIDS by promoting and even enforcing less risky behaviours.
