Cases of HIV and syphilis among gay men in Bangkok are on the rise, according to data released by US and Thai health authorities on Friday.

SYPHILLIS cases among gay men more than DOUBLED from 5 percent in 2005 to 12.5 percent in 2011, said the report in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Meanwhile, the annual prevalence of HIV also rose “SIGNIFICANTLY,” from 24.5 percent in 2005 to 29.4 percent in 2011 among men who have sex with men (MSM), it said.

These data show ongoing and increasing epidemics of HIV and syphilis infection among MSM in Bangkok,” said the report. (yeah, you think?)
