Staying H.I.V.-Free for $288
By DONALD G. McNEIL Jr.
Published: April 1, 2013

A new study suggests that most young gay men in Mexico City would pledge to stay H.I.V.-free, attend a monthly safe-sex talk and take regular H.I.V. tests to prove they were uninfected — all in return for just $288 a year.

Most male prostitutes would make the same promise for $156 a year, the study found.

Because each person receiving H.I.V. treatment costs Mexico’s public health system up to $7,000 a year for drugs alone, payments that encourage men to stay uninfected could be a bargain, the authors argue.

The study, done by researchers from Brown University, the University of California at Berkeley and Mexico’s national public health institute, was published online by The European Journal of Health Economics.

Although other countries have tried programs that pay people for good health behavior, like taking children for checkups, the authors believe their study was the first to pinpoint a specific dollar value that would ensure cooperation from 70 percent of a risk group — in this case, young gay and bisexual men, who have very high H.I.V. infection rates and are the drivers of Mexico’s epidemic.

The researchers approached men aged 18 to 25 in gay bars, discos and the streets of the city’s red-light district. The 40-minute survey, taken on cellphone-size computers, increased or decreased the amount each man was offered until 70 percent answered yes.

When it comes to staying H.I.V.-free, prostitutes have to make difficult decisions, said the lead author, Omar Galárraga, a health economist at Brown. They are often desperate for cash, and they can charge more for sex without a condom.

“But also, they know they are high-risk, so it’s good for them to have checkups,” he said.“If you’re a man who has sex with men in Mexico City, you’re lucky if you are tested every two years, if at all.”

Although he has not surveyed gay men or prostitutes in the United States to determine how much cash would be tempting, Dr. Galárraga said the cost-benefit ratio could, in theory, be greater in the United States because drugs and hospital care are far more expensive.

However, he noted two important differences. Prostitution is not illegal in Mexico, but it is in the United States, which could hamper recruitment. Also, 9 percent of the survey takers said they would not participate at any price, and they tended to be wealthier and better educated — that is, more resembling Americans.

Hi Boots:
I do not do the judging no way! All that I can do is share what God's word declares that is word alone is the sole judge of mankind. Many people I understand do not like to even think about this idea throug, could it really be true? God tells us that He will come to judge the world read the word to see if these things are so or not. Please, do not trust me who am I? I am just one declaring to all here when I share verses as God tells us He is a consuming fire, Hebrews. 12:29. Who am I to tell the Almighty different?
It is sad, so many people can make accusations about the Bible yet they never read the word if they did they would know these things. I cannot force anyone to believe this is all the work and grace of God, Jonn 6:29, here I can share where the verses are at but if you are truly interested I would think you would search out this matter yourself? After all, what can be more important than this? Thank you. Gary. 1 John 3:13-15

Gary, by your informing the world of the wrath of God you are making the judgement that the world is needing that information because you have judged the world as sinning. I would think you then are personally judging and accusing.

Hi Twiigs:

As I said before I never choosed to be a sinner but I am. I never hoosed to fll into sin but I have, you see drunk, some, lieing, cheating, stealing, porno, lust, and on and on it goes your sin is no different than any of these other sins they all cause death for the wages of sin is death this is why we all need salvationand that can only happen if the Lord truly saves one then soon these sins will go because God has made one a new creation in Christand He sent His Spirit inside of one this all takes a work of God to truly believe on the Lord.

"And Jsus answered andsaid uno them, This is THE WRK OF GOD THAT YOU BELIEVE ON HIM WHOM HE HATH SENT." John 6:29

This is not my work your work it must be all the work of God to believe on Him. Now there are many that may say the are believers because they did something but the fact is, God must make the first move to save one so he will call out from apure heart only because God already gave him that heart to call on the ame of the Lrd. Many today have what you call a do it your self have it your way self help gospel that is built on the pride of man so this is why many will be turned off becausehey see no rea chnge in them bno fruit of the Spirit of God in their lives because all they id is just [join up] and it does not last because it was all built on what they have done and by their will not by the will of God, John 1:13., Romans 9:11-24.

For some reason many want to make this sin some kind of special sin God just calls sin sin. The fact is, we are all in the same boat born siners and in a dire need of salvation that's it. We can cry out for His mercy and in the mean time read His word asking Him for wisdom and understnding begging Him for mercy, I have no problem doing this for without His mercy it would be all up hill. I cannot share with one what God has given me it has to be given the grace of God, Eph. 2:8-9. not of works least any man should boast. Thank you. Gary

<quoted text> Great, then if you are civil and understanding you will realize that I didn't choose to be a homosexula. Why would anyone want to be something that is so despised of? If I could be straight, then I would but I don't have that choice and I cannot choose my emotions and the love that I feel towards people of the same sex. And just so you know, I have surrendered my self to God a while back, and the only thing that became more apparent was that my feelings towards people of the gender only became stronger. I have tried time and time again, even forcing myself to believe that I liked women. Even having sexual relations with them and try to feel the love that I feel towards men for women but to no avail. Now, why is it that I have absolutely no physical, emotional, or sexual attraction to females? More than likely you won't have an answer for that but I have open ears and will take your opinion in as food for thought. Of course I could get married to a female but then then I would be living a lie joined to someone that I have absolutely no feelings for.

zzzz....homosexuality is not a choice.
Let's try this in a way that even someone as unintelligent as you might understand:
If a homosexual never has sex, are they still a homosexual?
We'll wait....
A person who never has perverted homosexual sex is not a homosexual. The act of perversion defines the pervert.

It is a choice to be a "DOG" not an act of nature.

No Fool, you see the problems that cause physical and mental issues today are a result of the degrading of our DNA and RNA, both Adam and Eve had perfect DNA and RNA.

There you go no contradiction.

This is not a contradiction it is spiritual. Look at it on the human level, if you were marries you and your wife would be one, yet you can still go to be with your wife. What is the problem.

What a load of crap. If it was spiritual than that means that every time Jesus and Moses said to kill women and children as well as elderly people, that was spiritual as well? Yes, Jesus and Moses sure did preach peace.
