The governor of Port Moresby, Powes Parkop, has told Radio Australia it was the stigmatisation and discrimination of these communities that caused high infection rates and deaths from HIV-AIDS."They're not coming out to get treatment and [other] assistance so they can live a full life and, more importantly, not pass on the virus," he said."So this is why it's important that we reach out and create a safe environment for these communities so that they can feel comfortable, they can come forth and they can get the services that they are entitled to ...
like anybody else in our country."Governor Parkop's campaign for less discrimination includes strengthening ties between sex workers and health service providers and education of Port Moresby's police force.
It has over 90 per cent of HIV-AIDS cases in the Pacific, and was labelled as on track to "pandemic" rates earlier in the year.
The Immigration Department said in a statement that it had known about the incident for two weeks and said the men in question were employees of the centre's security provider Wilson Security."The Department of Immigration and Border Protection categorically rejects assertions made over recent days that it was involved in a 'cover up' of an alleged sexual assault on Manus Island," the statement said."To clarify the matter, the Department was made aware immediately in mid-July of an incident involving three service provider staff and a locally engaged staff member.Provincial police commander Alex N'Drasal said the woman involved was interviewed on Wednesday and alleged the men tried to rape her.The woman reportedly told police she was given pills and sexually assaulted.print Pieter Hintjens Biography | Portfolio | Git Hub Books | Videos | Slides | Stories | Wiki Contact Thank you for the gifts Kind people already sent donations that will make my childrens' lives easier, when I'm not there any more. :-) Podcasts/Interviews Software Engineering Daily Interview by Adam Dymitruk Ruby Rogues #188, Community Building Talks on video "De afspraak", VRT, May 2016 (panel discussion) RTL TV, May 2016 (panel discussion) Dom Code 2015, Nov 2015 (keynote) Coding Serbia, Oct 2015 (keynote) Euroscipy, Cambridge, Aug 2015 (keynote) Py Grunn, Groningen, May 2015 Craft Conf, Budapest, Apr 2015 QCon London, Mar 2015 Code Mesh London, Nov 2014 Build Stuff, Vilnius 2014 Build Stuff, Vilnius, Nov 2014 (interview) Coding Serbia, Nov 2014 (keynote) Devnology, Leusden, Oct 2014 (keynote) Euro Python, Berlin, Jul 2014 (keynote) Build Stuff, Vilnius, Dec 2013 (interview) Build Stuff, Vilnius, Dec 2013 (keynote) Code Mesh London, Dec 2013 Dev Ops Days, London, Nov 2013 NDC Oslo, Jun 2013 CERN - Geneva, Jun 2013 Tech Mesh, London, Dec 2012 Strange Loop, St.Louis, Oct 2012 Zero [email protected] part 2 - Portland, Feb 2012 Zero [email protected] part 1 - Portland, Feb 2012 FLOSS Weekly, Petaliuma CA, Dec 2011 FOSDEM 2011, Brussels Berlin Buzzwords 2010 (keynote) FOSDEM 2009, Brussels Hellenic FOSS Conference 2008, Athens part 1 Hellenic FOSS Conference 2008, Athens part 2 Email me at First Code Mesh in London, then Built Stuff in Vilnius: two great events during the first half of December 2013, where I spoke, and despite that, nothing bad happened.
