POZ Magazine: Indonesian Schools Don’t Discuss Condoms

Unwillingness to publicly discuss condoms is impeding Indonesia’s efforts to slow the spread of HIV, the Jakarta Globe reports. Health education courses in Indonesian public schools also don’t include information about sexually transmitted infections, despite the fact that almost half of the country’s estimated 50,352 people living with HIV are young people in their 20s. Government officials say that endorsing condom use might be seen as encouraging casual sex, which would not be accepted by the country’s Muslim majority.

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.
