SINGAPORE - Apr 26, 2004

Singapore is seeing a rise in HIV transmission rates among gay men, even while new infections in the general population are falling. Action for AIDS (AfA) reported that infections stemming from male homosexual activites rose from 12 percent of all cases in 2002 to 18 percent in 2003.

AfA also reported that new infections are largely stemming from unsafe sexual activity taking place in Sinagpore (as opposed to overseas) and that younger gay men are particularly at risk.

In addition, the Internet is now the most common for gays to find sexual partners (60% of survey responses). 48% reported meeting partners at saunas, 30% at gay clubs/bars, and 28% through social networks. While just under 14% reported carrying condoms with them most of the time, 41% said that they never carried condoms.
