Of the rather depressing report, I think this is one of the things that stood out most to me.
But it is being pressured by conservative religious groups toward abstinence-only programs and away from vulnerable groups like prostitutes, homosexuals and drug addicts.
While I agree that abstinence only campaigns are a method that could be used to stop HIV, it has been demonstrated to be looking through rose coloured glasses at best. When we're talking about a virus that kills several million people every year and is infecting more we should be focusing on the best treatments available, according to the medical establishment and not what peer groups can exert the most pressure. It disappoints me to see America, which was the country to make some of the most key breakthroughs with HIV, give in to individuals who do not have any practical knowledge of the situation and are not recommending the best way to really approach the AIDs epidemic.
Edit: Speaking of sexuality and general retardedness, I also saw this over at tvnz news. Another failure of the NZ education system.
