Health International (FHI), a nongovernmental organization, is spearheading
an HIVAIDS program in Indonesia funded by USAID. The main aim of this program
is to increase risk reduction behaviour among individuals at high risk of HIV
and other Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI).
HIV/AIDS crisis in Indonesia is beginning to gain momentum as infection rates of
the virus increase, especially among injecting drug users. The UN AIDS agency
recently released a report that said 'The situation in Indonesia underlines the
fact that where risky behaviour exists, the epidemic may eventually spread, even
if it takes some years for the spread to become apparent.'
