HIV infection rates rising in Kazakhstan

Research shows that HIV/AIDS among gay men is far higher than what government statistics suggest.

    While progress has been made in fighting HIV since its discovery 30 years ago, in Kazakhstan infection rates continue to rise.

    In the former Soviet Union, research suggests that HIV/AIDS among gay men is far higher than what official government statistics suggest.

    Special state-funded outreach programmes for gay men are also rare.
