As many as 3.699 cases of HIV/AIDS were identified in Bali during the period of January-June 2014, with the majority of cases found in the island’s capital city of Denpasar. Quoted in Kompas.com, the head of the provincial health service, Dr. Ketut Suarjaya, said in Denpasar on Tuesday, July 1, 2014, “Depasar has the greatest number of cases of HIV/AIDS when compared to the remaining eight regencies and metropolitan areas of Bali.” The figures break down further to 1,876 cases of HIV and 1,823 cases ofAIDS.
The second highest number of HIV/AIDS cases are found in Buleleng in North Bali where 1,632 cases of HIV/AIDS are reported.
Coming in third in terms of HIV/AIDS cases in Bali is the regency of Bandung with 1,343 cases.
Ubud and its surrounding regency of Gianyar reports 683 cases of HIV/AIDS. Tabanan 556 cases, Jembrana 505 cases, Karangasem 292 cases, Klungkung 219 cases and Bangli 170 cases. We started Bali against AIDS in March 2013 with the aim of lowering new HIV infections and by the look of things there's still a lot of work to be done in educating Bali's youth. But we WILL do it, together with our partner organizations, and those figures WILL lower. Nobody should get ill from making love -and with the correct information, nobody needs to. Thank you for joining us in this important fight!
