(8/1/2014)

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika has renewed his call for the closure of Bali’s backstreet “Cafes” that often serve as fronts for prostitution.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the Governor want various agencies and the people of Bali to form ranks to stop the rampant spread of HIV/AIDS by, among other steps, closing the illegal cafes.

Pastika said: “Pity the poor HIV/AIDS activists, their efforts to reduce the disease are pointless if places like this are allowed to operate.”

The Governor also attack the mentality of those Balinese who operate such businesses, calling on them to close their illicit business in order to protect the next generation of Balinese.

The governor proclaimed a five-point program for the control and eradication of HIV/AIDS in Bali:

  • Abstinence from high-risk sexual activity.
  • Be Faithful – have sexual relations only with your partner.
  • Condom – to always use a condom when engaging in high-risk sexual activity.
  • Drugs – Avoid them, particularly intravenous drugs.
  • Education – learn more about HIV/AIDS and how to prevent it.
Speaking before a HIV/AIDS event dedicated to raising awareness of the disease, Pastika ask the public to take definite steps to save the people of Bali form the threat of the disease.

“Let us work together to prevent HIV/AIDS by inviting all elements of the community to learn more about this disease and undertake free testing,” said the Governor.

The Governor early detection of the disease will allow treatment and prevent its spread.
