AIDS Expert Tells China's Gay Men to Face Up to Responsibilities
August 4, 2010
Men who have sex with men need to shoulder more of the burden for preventing new HIV infections among MSM in China, the head of the China Program of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation said during a news broadcast Friday.
HIV's spread through unprotected sex among MSM remains "one of the biggest emerging challenges" to controlling HIV, Dr. Ray Yip told CNC World, a satellite news program operated by Xinhua. Social pressures force many MSM with HIV to remain hidden, reluctant to disclose their infections, Yip said. In addition, many MSM are poorly informed about safe-sex practices.
