(12/9/2011)

The Jakarta Globe and the National News Agency Antara report that a Bali legislator warned on Monday, December 5, 2011, that Bali’s relatively high rate of HIV/AIDS infection is linked to the prevalence of “cafes” operating o the roadsides across the island.

Echoing a warning made repeatedly by Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika, Ketut Kariyasa Adnyana of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) links growing infection rates with the “café” or community bars that often serve as a front for prostitution.

Said Adnyana: .

“Cafes have spread into remote villages on the island. The condition is worrying because of the high spread of HIV and AIDS. Many of the victims are housewives who got infected from their husbands.”



Speaking plainly and saying the “cafes” are fronts for commercial sex, Aradnyana points to the high level of HIV/AIDS infections detected among prostitutes in Bali. He also praised governor Pastika’s efforts to close down unlicensed and illegal cafes, urging prostitution to be centralized for better control.

A female lawmaker, Utami Dwi Suryadi, told husbands to “think twice” before frequenting “café.” “If the husband spreads the disease to the wives, who will suffer?” she said. “The children might lose their parents and even their future.”
