Around the world in AIDS-Y Days

NORTH AMERICA
Conservatives in Mexico vow to fight the nation’s new proposal to  put condom machines in public high schools to halt HIV and teen pregnancy.

THE CARIBBEAN
In May, Trinidad and Tobago opened the nation’s first public HIV-testing center. Previous clinics served only  pregnant women.

AFRICA
Millions in excused international debt dollars will be spent to rush free HIV meds to 100,000 PWAs, Zambia officials  announced in June.

EUROPE
France’s prez, Jacques Chirac, proposed a global airfare tax—adding $1 to all international tickets to raise AIDS funds—for debate at July’s G8 summit.

ASIA
India trumpeted a May 25 study that showed HIV cases dropping 95% from 2003 to 2004. Facing an international howl, an expert came forth to confess that the drop was due to “changes” in how the data were collected.

PACIFIC
In June, Malaysia’s health minister unveiled a plan to give free condoms nationwide, sparking a backlash by Muslim clerics and politicians, who insist that Allah wants only married HIVers to have them.
