A survey conducted by the Kerti Praja Foundation shows that 80,000 men pay for commercial sex services each year in Bali.

As reported by Beritabali.com, these commercial sex customers emanate from every socio-economic strata purchasing services from 3,000 commercial sex workers.

The chairman of the Kerti Praja Foundation, Dr. Dewa Nyoman Wirawan, told the press on Saturday, January 19, 2013, that the large number of commercial sex customers in Bali complicates efforts to control the spread of HIV/AIDS where an estimated 20% of the Island’s 3,000 commercial sex workers are infected with the disease.

Dr.Wirawan said the high demand for commercial sex and local laws make fighting HIV/AIDS in Bali problematic. He points to Thailand where an educational media campaign by the government has reduced the number of commercial sex workers.

Wirawan said that by calculating a 1% probability of infection, Bali will see 1,050 new cases of HIV infection among a commercial sex customer base where only 30% are believed to use condoms.

Meanwhile the Bali Commission for the Control of AIDS (KPA-Bali) estimates there are 6,971 cases of HIV/AIDS in Bali. From that total, KPA-Bali says 75.8% resulted from heterosexual contact with 40.5% affecting young people between the ages of 20-29.
