NEW YORK, January 13, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The United Nations has launched a series of cartoons containing condoms as the main characters. “The Three Amigos” condom characters promote the so-called safe-sex message that condoms prevent HIV/AIDS.

The UN describes the campaign as the “start of the world’s largest integrated behaviour modification program,” according to a WorldNetDaily report.  The feature presents the characters, Shaft, Stretch and Dick, in a variety of settings. Canadian producer-director Firdaus Kharas said, “We’re using humor to stop the spread of AIDS.”  The television advertisement is already playing in the Netherlands, South Africa, and Canada, and has received accolades including four international festival selections, and 25 international awards.  See related LifeSiteNews.com story   Africans already inundated with condoms and needing basic medical supplies http://www.lifesite.net/ldn/2003/feb/03022506.html   tv
