Bali governor Made Pastika is openly questioning the commitment and resolve of the island’s regents in the war on HIV/AIDS.

Proof of this lack of resolve, in the opinion of the Governor, is seen in the failure  by three regencies in Bali to adopt provincial regulations designed to reduce the threat of HIV/AIDS. The three recalcitrant regencies are identified by Pastika as Karangasem, Tabanan and Denpasar. quotes the Governor, who is calling on the regents to become serious in curbing HIV/AIDS by closing down illegal and unregistered roadside cafes. These unlicensed establishments are often fronts for prostitution operations.

Complained Pastika: “I have gone back and forth in discussions with the regents. I think the people of Bali know the problem. If you go to these dimly lit cafes it’s dangerous, because in these place are all sorts of activities are taking place. Come on, how can the governor handle all these things, what more policies are needed?”

Pastika emphasized that the provincial government has prepared a range of policies to control HIV/AIDS. What remains, he said, is for the regents to do their jobs and implement these policies in the field.
