AIDS becoming more of a problem in gay communities

Hong Kong, homosexual and bisexual male AIDS cases are increasing, concerning health authorities. While the number of gay men has also increased, authorities are reluctant to attribute the rise to numbers, rather, heightened awareness about the need for testing and more accessible data collection among the gay communities have bolstered numbers. However, the incidence of AIDS in gay men is still surpassed by heterosexual men. Drug users were also increasing in incidence with AIDS.
