Prostitutes in Bangladeshi brothels are often underage and now, many of them are hooked on steroids. And for most of the girls here, there is no monetary gain whatsoever: because most of the inmates (and it is, in many ways, like a prison) at Faridpur brothel are bonded sex workers.

HIV is a growing problem in India. The disease has spread from affecting particular groups - sex workers and truck drivers, for instance - to all sectors of Indian society. But in a country where poverty, illiteracy, and poor health are rife, doctors are faced with the daunting challenge of raising awareness and getting those that are already infected to seek medical assistance.

On a business trip away from home, Moctar gets very drunk and heads for his hotel room with Coumba, a sex worker. Still from "For Aicha"His friend Timothy puts a condom in Moctar's jacket pocket so that he can protect himself and his wife. The next morning, at breakfast, Timothy discovers the condom, still unopened, in Moctar's pocket. Moctar has forgotten everything that happened the night before. By Cheick Oumar Sissoko, Mali, based on an original idea by Dieudonné Ouedraogo, aged 16, from Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Scenarios from the Sahel is a unique collection of 13 films exploring the issue of HIV/Aids in Africa. The films combine humour, drama and animation with information about the nature of HIV/AIDS and the best forms of prevention. They provide an insight into the daily experience of living with the disease as experienced by people of all ages in Africa. In 1997, thousands of young people under 25 in Senegal, Mali and Burkina Faso took part in a contest inviting them to come up with ideas for short films on HIV/AIDS. The contest was so successful that a second contest was held in early 2000. Special emphasis in this contest was placed on encouraging girls/young women, rural youth, and young people who do not attend school to participate. Scores of organisations worked in partnership to bring the conteststo communities, and almost 22,000 young people took part. Scenarios from the Sahel (now known as Scenarios From Africa) is a community mobilisation, education and media project. It offers children and young people the opportunity to work with international directors in the production of short fiction films to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS. For more information about Scenarios From Africa please visit the Global Dialogues Site here: http://www.globaldialogues.org To watch more films about HIV and AIDS, please visit the OneWorldTV Site here: http://tv.oneworld.net

http://www.instablogs.com/ Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari is visiting China on what is being billed as his first official visit abroad. Pakistan has long seen China as its most reliable friend, in contrast to the United States, whose support has waxed and waned in line with U.S. strategic interests in the region. China, Zardari’s first choice for an official visit Both Pakistan and China have been good friends for more than six decades and have stood with each other through thick and thin. There is nothing unusual about President Zardari’s visit to China since it happens to be the closest and the most reliable friend of Pakistan. The overbearing attitude of United States towards Pakistan especially during the conduct of war on terror and the repeated violations of Pakistan’s sovereignty time and again to serve its own interests has left many in the country infuriated. This, combined with US withering economic clout has left Pakistan with little alternative but to strengthen ties with China. Unlike US, China has consistently supported Pakistan and both have enjoyed mutually beneficial relationship in the past. There is no harm in giving up on past relationships that are no longer fructuous and instead invest in friendships that are more yielding. Today Pakistan’s economy is in utter turmoil we need china’s help to salvage us from the worst economic scenario. Besides together Pakistan and China can also act as counterweight to India which has been an existential threat to us. A research carried out by Media AIDS and Health Watch has revealed that more Malawian children are being exposed to pornographic materials than ever. Most of them are siblings of Commercial Sex Workers (CSW), a section that lets their children watch pornographic films and videos in the name of their profession. Pornigraphy endemic in Malawi A research in Malawi reveals that 21 percent of children whose parents, relatives or guardians own a television set have at one time been exposed to pornographic materials in the past four years. Most of them exposed are siblings of Commercial Sex Workers a sector of Malawi society that let their children watch pornographic films and videos in the name of their profession. For other children, watching takes place in the absence of parents, or any adult, an indication that children are also aware that pornography is not good for their mental growth. Some of these children have gone on to commit sexual offenses, thinking they may not be punished accordingly for their behavior. Concerned authorities in Malawi should work with the Censorship Board to prevent more and more children from getting exposed to pornographic material. Awareness must be raised about the evils of pornography among the sexual workers; the most vulnerable group given the nature of their profession. Brazilian President Luis Ignacio Lula de Silva has signed an agreement to make changes to Portuguese spelling in Brazil. The newly adopted laws aim to simplify spellings by eliminating some ``silent'' letters and accents Brazil adopts changes in Portuguese language Around 250 million people speak Portuguese around the world: Portugal, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, East Timor, Sao Tome and Principe. People around the world have developed their own linguistic variation of Portuguese which has developed a need to unify all these variations and reach some kind of standardization. Several spelling rules will change so that the different variations may become more similar. Both Portugal and Brazil have signed agreements and are ready to enter apply the new rules in the next 2 years. However, this is nothing more than a pressure exerted by large publishers so they can reach new markets. The proposed changes in the majority will not facilitate the learning of language; instead it will only further confuse those who have not mastered the language. The Portuguese is a very difficult language and even the Brazilians can't understand hundreds of grammatical rules. For example, there are 12 verb tenses, each for a specific situation. Finally, things will become even harder if the Brazilians are no longer able to modify the language as and when new rules apply. India Asia's third-largest economy is growing by nearly 9 percent a year driven largely by consumer demand from the middle-class and soaring foreign investment. Despite the boom, recent official data has shown that an estimated 800 million of India's billion-plus people live on 50 U.S. cents a day. Social economic divide in India The luxury mall undoubtedly symbolizes the socio economic divide in modern India. This genre of apartheid is not anew to India. Our ancient and medieval past is stuffed with rotund and self gratifying Maharajas. They indulged in unimaginable luxury and opulence, completely apathetic to the horrifying poverty of their subjects. However, those times were different. The despotic political set up and social beliefs manipulated the popular mindset into accepting their deprivation as the will of providence. What should put modern India to shame is the recurrence of similar division of society into haves and have nots. Ours is a democratic set up that promised equal social and economic opportunities at the time of independence. It is not the which is to be blamed for our growing disparities. It’s the failure to deliver social justice and development to India's poorest regions that have alienated people and helped open up economic,. In a superficially shining India we may count ourselves as no less than anyone else but then it’s our shanty slum which meets the eyes that comes calling to India. http://www.instablogs.com/

In The Flesh revolves around the lives of three sex workers: Shabana, a street-smart woman in her late 20s who works the dark highways outside Mumbai; Bhaskar, a transgender person in his early 20s who sells sex to other men in Kolkata for a living; Uma, an aging former theatre actress who still lives in the brothel in Kolkata where she earlier worked. We see their workplaces, hear their stories, see them pick up customers, persuade clients to wear condoms, fight HIV/AIDS in their communities, and battle violence through simple homemade weapons and collective action on the streets. We see their daughters, mothers, lovers, passions. See them sane, see them drunk. Tight up close, close enough to hear the glasses clink. See them bad, see them good. We see them as they really are – human beings struggling for a space in society. No more than you. No less than me.
