Most of the people reporting HIV/AIDS infections in Papua last year were housewives, accounting for 164 individuals, the government says.
Most of these women had contracted HIV from their husbands, Jayapura AIDS Commission secretary Purnomo said Monday in Sentani as reported by kompas.com reported.
“Their husbands were unfaithful,” he said
Official records show there were 609 people living with HIV/AIDS in Papua last year, comprising 242 men and 367 women.
Up to 164 of the women were housewives, and 102 were sex workers. Of the total, 37 were civil servants, 67 were employees of private companies, 41 were high school and college students and 61 were farmers or blue collar or informal workers.
Twelve of the women were under four years old and 44 were between 15 and 19 years of age, while most (285 of them) were in their 20s; 198 were in their 30s and 55 were in their 40s.
Most HIV/AIDS cases were found in the Sentani district, 126 in East Sentani, 26 in Kauran, 20 in Nimboran and 25 in West Sentani.
Four children had contracted HIV from their mothers, seven from blood transfusions and the rest from sexual intercourse.
