‘Worrying’ rise in HIV cases among gay men – 5 Jun 2014

The number of new cases of HIV and AIDS in Singapore fell slightly last year to 454, 15 less than in 2012.

However, the Action for AIDS (AFA) group here said there has been a “worrying” rise in infections among homosexual men.

The Ministry of Health revealed the figures yesterday, which also showed that the number of homosexual and bisexual cases has risen from 166 in 2009 to 247 last year.

In contrast, the number of heterosexual men infected fell from 241 to 157 in the same period.
