Declining condom use with… declining infection rate?

The annual number of new HIV infections among adults and adolescents decreased by 50% or more in 26 countries between 2001 and 2012. …recent surveys in several countries in sub‑Saharan Africa have detected decreases in condom use and/or an increase in the number of sexual partners.

So, as condom use has apparently decreased in sub-Saharan Africa, the continent with the most visible epidemic of HIV/AIDS, there has been an overall global decrease in infection?
