The Three Amigos
is a series of twenty Public Service Announcements (PSAs) in the form of short comedic sketches, featuring three animated, talking condoms. Some 80 volunteers in Canada, India and South Africa have created this ground-breaking behaviour modification programme to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS.
These PSA's should be used as one component only in a comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention programme. The PSA's will not be appropriate in all settings and in all cultures and careful evalualtion of the appropriateness of each PSA should be made.
The original PSA versions were created in English with Canadian voices. With a grant from OMNI Television in Ontario, the PSAs have been adapted into 41 languages.
The Most Reverend Desmond Tutu believes these PSAs are a powerful communicating tool to encourage people to change their behaviour. Please read Desmond Tutu's letter here.
