    Alarming Africa male gay HIV rate

    Alarming Africa male gay HIV rate


    The reports said more education was needed to combat HIV among gay men

    HIV rates among gay men in some African countries are 10 times higher than among the general male population, says research in medical journal the Lancet.

    The report said prejudice towards gay people was leading to isolation and harassment, which in turn led to risky sexual practices among gay communities.

    But the risks are not limited to gay men, as many of the infected also have female sexual partners.

    The report called for greater education and resources in the fight against HIV.

    The Oxford University researchers found that the prevalence of HIV/Aids among gay men in sub-Saharan African has been "driven by cultural, religious and political unwillingness to accept [gay men] as equal members of society".

    Lead researcher Adrian Smith told the BBC there was "profound stigma and social hostility at every level of society concerning either same-sex behaviours amongst men, or homosexuality".

    "This has the consequence that this group becomes extremely hard to reach," he said.

    Mr Smith said that gay male sex had always been acknowledged as being particularly dangerous in terms of contracting HIV/Aids.

    But gay men were also more likely to be involved in other high-risk behaviours, including sex work, having multiple partners and being in contact with intravenous drug use, he said.

    Education crucial

    George Kanuma, a gay rights activist in Burundi, told the BBC many men "hide their sexual orientation" to get married and have children, but continue to have sex with men.

    "Most of them know that you can contract HIV/Aids or any infection when you are making sex with women, but not when you are having sex with another man," he said.

    Mr Smith said there was "a desperate need for delivering a basic package of prevention for HIV", including ensuring supplies of condoms.

    "There is also a need to sensitise, educate and train those involved in HIV, the interface with men who have sex with men, to educate those involved in care and prevention activities," he said.

    The United Nations Aids agency estimates that 33 million people in the world have HIV, of whom two-thirds live in sub-Saharan Africa.

    In my estimation, If they think a queer is Bi or what ever it is and might have sex with a woman after he has AIDS from being a queer then he should be jailed for life away from women or shot on the spot.
    End of problem.

    Based upon reports received from my licensee in South Africa black African men are very promiscuous and tend to indulge in sex with anything they can get their hands on.

    He loses staff on a monthly bases from this horrible disease and no amount of education seems to be working.

    Did you know that in New York there are 'Bug Parties' where people go to deliberately contract HIV because in the US you get the best medication for FREE - and even a FREE apartment if your T cell count is at blah blah blah for six months or over?

    In America minority groups are so strong that any governor who dared to snuff this policy out would son be outed and would not make office.
