A recent article by BBC Burmese shocked the country by reporting the HIV infection situation.
Lan Pya Kyel unboxed the fact that usually HIV prevalence is the highest between the ages of 18 and 35, and the number of HIV infections in this age group has increased to 10 % in 2022. However, due to the lack of research and survey capabilities due to the military coup, it is difficult to get accurate information on the percentage of the youth infected with HIV.
Total anarchy followed the military coup d’état. Among the others, the key factor is the emergence of illegal nightclubs and bars at the same time providing easy access to drugs to draw people to seek freedom in nightlife as a way out for their daily suffocating lives.
Please pray that God will use church and believers to reach out to the infected people and the strays!
