With up to 3% of the population infected by HIV/AIDS, the disease is running rife in Papua. With this figure set to double, campaigners are calling for international attention.

Local leader, Agus Alua, of the Papuan People’s Assembly claims “this issue is as bad as genocide in West Papua.” However, reports indicate that the disease has spread as a result of high-risk sexual behaviour that can be tracked back to brothels, illegal fishermen and tradesmen, both attracting prostitution. So who organises the prostitution? ““It cannot survive without support from the military or police”” says Agus.
