POZ magazine: Most Malaysians With HIV/AIDS Are Muslims

About 72 percent of the 87,710 people with HIV/AIDS in Malaysia are Muslims, according to a study by the Malaysian AIDS Council and reported by Malay Mail Online.
As a result, the council plans to emphasize participation and awareness among Muslims during World AIDS Day, said Datuk Zaman Khan, vice president of the council.
According to the article, the council is also concerned about the high rate of HIV among women, which is now at 20 percent compared with 9.5 percent in 2000.
A report by the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on AIDS estimates that nine Malaysians contract the virus every day.

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
