Wariyapola hit by HIV

The Kurunegala district has the second largest number of HIV infected cases among all districts in the country and of them, the majority has been reported from Wariyapola, SDT consultant Aruna Shantha Ratnamalala of the Wariyapola MOH Office said.

He disclosed this at an awareness programme at the Minuwangoda Bodhirukkarama Viharaya recently.

Ratnamalala said a child is sexually active between the ages

of 10 to 12 although he or she is not mentally strong to enter marriage. "But various sexual inducements are made to them through certain print and electronic media. There are nearly 50 hotels in Wariyapola which rent out rooms for couples," he said.

The revealing attire by certain females also tempts males to engage in sexual activities promoting the spread of STDs.
