An article highlighted by an editorial in the BMJ shows the increase in HIV in the Phillippines and the reduction in average age at the time of infection. Sex workers, bisexuals, and overseas workers are all at great risk – and so are their sexual partners.
Given the nature of the sex trade in the Philippines, I would imagine this is an issue that countries like the UK, Australia, US, Netherlands, etc. would be specifically interested in. I would argue that these countries should be spending more in combatting the spread of HIV in the Philippines for their own good. Even more prudent would be to put pressure on advocating for condom use programmes in a country where the government is scared of offending the Catholic Church.
