Berita mengenai HIV/AIDS,

KOTA BHARU - Sikap segelintir suami yang kerap 'makan luar' dengan pelacur di negara jiran dikenal pasti menjadi punca ramai suri rumah di Kelantan dijangkiti penyakit HIV/AIDS berbanding wanita di negeri lain.

Presiden Majlis AIDS Se-Malaysia (MAC), Datuk Mohd. Zaman Khan (gambar kecil) yang mendedahkan perkara itu berkata, gaya hidup bebas golongan lelaki terutama yang telah berkahwin menjadi faktor utama isteri dan wanita secara tidak langsung terdedah kepada jangkitan virus berkenaan.

"Ramai wanita yang menghidap HIV/AIDS mendapat (penyakit itu) daripada suami mereka, sesetengah orang (lelaki) pergi pada pelacur dan mereka terdedah (kepada jangkitan HIV/AIDS).

"Misalnya orang lelaki selalu pergi ke Sungai Golok, selepas melakukan 'lawatan' ke sana, mereka kembali pada isteri mereka yang kemudian telah menyebabkan wanita atau isteri mereka menerima akibatnya dengan dijangkiti virus berkenaan," katanya pada majlis sambutan Hari AIDS Sedunia 2010 peringkat kebangsaan di sini semalam.
