I am proud to say that THAILAND is one of the ONLY countries in the world where the AIDS rate is going DOWN. AIDS education is stressed in the schools. However, I should not speak so soon. AIDS is still a problem and the number one cause of death in Thailand. As substantial as these changes and HIV AIDS prevention programs are, one in every 100 Thais still has HIV AIDS. Chiang Mai, and areas in Thailand in general, are unfortunately notorious for prostitution. This is how AIDS spreads. Do not get involved with a prostitute; you are putting your life of the line!! Lets try and stop the spread of AIDS!!!!!!!!!!!
