Members of this community are in high risks of HIV infection: Lama

Kailali (Pahichan) June 16 – Raju Lama, Coordinator of Far-Western Society has said that members of gender and sexual minority are at the risks of HIV infection as they have less knowledge about homosexual relation.

He said there is a need of informing the people about the wide-range of issues. “People who are conducting risky sex are vulnerable to HIV infection. Therefore there is a need of open debate and discussions,” said Lama, adding that there is a need of testing the blood by this community on periodic basis.
