I agree with kdolkar. Such matter should not be ignored. We know such diseases are bad for society as a whole.

Your article really raises the concern and the need for awareness among the Tibetan community, especially the recent arrivals from Tibet and the un-educated Tibetans in India, and what the Tibetan Health department is doing to meet their knowledge gap. I absolutely agree that there should be a long standing project for HIV/AIDS prevention in Tibetan communities.

How about sending your article to some of the Tib govt magazines like Bulletin or the Tibetan review and also cc to the Tibetan health minister and Tib-American chitue rep. This issue is something that we really need to act on right away or soon the epidemic will spread so fast in the settlements.

Other less prominent issues are the rise of type II diabetes in tibetan immigrants in US. With the change of lifestyle in US but with the same conservative eating habits of momos, butter salt teas, rice, and lots of meat, diabetes and cardiovascular disease are inevitable in the Tibetan immigrant population.

Such awareness should be made and initiations should be taken from the government as well as from people's side to make awareness. "Moving" tibetans, fleeing from Tibet as well as fleeing from India to west, are surely prone to HIV/AIDS.
