Protecting and Educating Women in KTVs and Bars Against HIV

NGOs look to penetrate sex industry to prevent HIV cases
2 July 2018
Government officials and NGOs are looking for a way to work with owners of KTVs, bars and nightclubs in order to have easy access to educate women working in the establishments to protect themselves against HIV and prevent discrimination against those who were infected.

Teng Kuntea, secretary-general of the National Authority for Combatting HIV/AIDS, said yesterday that government officials met with NGOs last week to discuss the issue of educating women who are most vulnerable to exposure.

Mr Kunthea said that 2.3 percent of those who contract HIV work in KTVs, bars and nightclubs.

“It’s important to work with the owners of those places because the owners could advise their employees to take measures in order to avoid HIV infection,” he said, adding that women who offer sexual services must consciously protect themselves. “We do not know if guests are infected or not, so those women must protect themselves by using condoms.”

Mr Kunthea estimated that there are 40,000 women working in KTVs, bars and nightclubs across the country, with half in Phnom Penh.

I knew one who worked in the old Oscar's bar on 104, knowing that she had HIV. I bet she didn't care about condom use. She later died of the disease.

Agreed, but,, they also need to educate the police and justice system that having condoms in a persons possession should not be used as evidence of a crime or used as a means of '' show and shaming '' a person.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
