Kingdom not yet ready for LGBT laws: Hun Sen

Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday said the Kingdom is not ready yet to create legislation to allow same-sex marriages because the issue is still causing controversy in some countries.

He noted that while the government cannot legislate to have same-sex marriages, it does not discriminate against LGBT people. “We cann...read more »

What you should know about HIV/AIDS and Sex Safety

Teenager controls HIV infection without drugs for more than 12 years

(CNN)A French teenager infected at birth with HIV has shown the ability to control levels of the infection in her body -- without being on antiretroviral treatment. The finding provides new hope that a "functional" cure for HIV -- where the virus is brought down to low levels but not eradicated in the body -- may one day be possible. The 18-year-old female, whose mother was HIV positive, was given antiretroviral treatment soon after birth but stopped at age six and has since maintained undetectable levels of the virus in her blood -- known as remission -- for 12 years. "This is the first [time] long-term remission has been shown in children, or adolescents," said Asier Saez Cirion from the Institut Pasteur in France, who presented the findings at the 8th IAS conference...read more »

In Condom Market, a Growing Private Sector

When Phnom Penh was flooded with free condoms during the Water Festival last week—a public health push to ensure revelers who came for days of debauchery did so safely—the city’s condom vendors weren’t happy about it.   “During the Water Festival, my company got almost no orders from guesthouses because most of the customers who came to Phnom Penh got free condoms from the NGOs,” said Kem Vichet, director of PPES Group, the local distributor of Yoi condoms.    But the Water Festival is a once-a-year event, and other private companies in the condom sector say the government bodies and health NGOs who distributed condoms for free last week have also been helping the for-profit condom market take off.   The global health organiza...read more »
