Sentencing Of Men To Prison For Homosexuality Could Damage Senegal’s HIV Prevention Strategies, Activists Say

Reuters: Jailing of gay men in Senegal poses setback to HIV fight in Africa
“It took less than a minute for a panel of judges in Senegal to sentence seven men to six months in prison for homosexuality last week, but campaigners say the harm to the African nation’s anti-HIV efforts could last much longer. … Campaigners warned that Friday’s verdict, based on a police discovery of condoms and lubricant in the house where the men were arrested, was a hammer blow to groups promoting safe sex…” (Brice, 8/26).
