SAO PAULO: The devastating news
didn t make sense to Brazilian Pierre
Freitaz. How was it possible that, at
age 17, he was infected with HIV if his
only boyfriend seemed fit and healthy?
Freitaz confesses he knew little about
the virus when he was diagnosed in
2004. He didn t understand the dif-
ference between the infection and the
disease it caused: Aids. He was confused
by the lack of obvious symptoms.
"It s like I was living in a different
part of the world, and I felt immune."
While Brazil has long been seen as
a global model in the fight against Aids,
activists and officials say more and
more youths share Freitaz s unawareness
of HIV risks, or are unconcerned about
Even as HIV infection rates have
begun declining in many other places,
cases have been slowly rising in Brazil---
with the sharpest jump among youths
15 to 24.
"The numbers are going up. It s a
paradox, a shame. After all the money
spent on treatment and implementing
a policy for everyone to receive it, we
have these disastrous results," said
Dr Caio Rosenthal, a Sao Paulo-
based specialist at the Emilio Ribas
Institute of Infectious Diseases.
UN statistics show 44,000 new
infections detected last year in
Brazil, up from fewer than 40,000
in 2005---a rate outpacing popu-
The national Health Ministry
says overall numbers of HIV infec-
tions has reached nearly 800,000.
That s half of all the HIV cases in
all of Latin America.
By comparison, in the United
States, the rate of new HIV cases
has dropped by a third over the
past decade, according to a study
published last month in the Journal
of the American Medical Associ-
About 1.1 million Americans are
estimated to be infected with HIV.
When the global Aids epidemic
erupted in the 1980s, Brazilian offi-
cials reacted quickly.
Brazil carried out widespread
sex education campaigns and
became the first developing nation
to offer free antiretroviral treatment
on a large scale.
The pace of deaths fell and
mother-to-child transmission was
Officials say the persistent rise
in cases could be partly the result
of better systems for tracking the
virus. Others blame religious oppo-
sition to sex education campaigns,
or say some youths mistakenly
believe that progress in treating
Aids means it s a problem of the
past. Brazil s dominant Catholic
church frowns on the use of con-
doms, but the chief resistance to
sex education campaigns has come
from evangelical Christians, whose
share of Brazil s population has
jumped from five per cent to 22
per cent between 1970 and 2010,
making them an increasingly influ-
ential political force.
Dr Dirceu Greco, the former
head of the Department of Sexually
Transmitted Diseases, Aids and
Viral Hepatitis at the health min-
istry, said opposition by evangelical
leaders "caused notorious back-
tracking" in Aids policy. Another
former leader of the programme,
Dr Pedro Chequer, complained
that the restrictions have hurt
campaigns targeting vulnerable
populations such as gays and sex
"There was a very clear setback.
Brazil used to be at the forefront,
but now it s just like any other
country," said Chequer, who is
widely seen as Brazil s leading anti-
In the past two years, for exam-
ple, the federal government ordered
schools to stop handing out comic
books and other materials aimed
at youth with stories encouraging
the use of condoms to prevent HIV
and teenage pregnancies. (AP)
