Do condoms provide protection against HIV?
Yes. Long-term studies involving couples where one partner is HIV-positive and the other is not (called
serodiscordant couples) allow researchers to estimate the incidence of transmission among condom
users and nonusers. Studies of these couples have found that consistent condom use reduces the risk
of HIV transmission by between 80 and 94%.

These findings also hold implications for the important role that pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) may play in further reducing infections that may occur when condoms fail. PrEP is a prevention strategy where HIV-negative individuals take antiretroviral medications to reduce risk of HIV infection.http://betablog.org/51-new-hiv-infections-condom-failure-anal-sex-study-finds/
If you put all your eggs in one basket (condoms) and throw out the rest (PrEP, Undetectable partners) you're a fool.
