Kenya to Conduct Gay Census in Attempt to Fight AIDS
The government of Kenya will attempt to count the number of gays in the country in an attempt to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS:
"Nicholas Muraguri, head of Kenya's Aids prevention programme Nascop, told the BBC it was vital that the government reached out to the gay community. He said gay people suffered from a lack of information about the disease. But analysts say many gay people will be afraid to come forward in a country where homosexuality can result in jail. Mr Muraguri conceded that an accurate count was unlikely. But he told the BBC's Network Africa programme getting a clearer idea of the number of gay people would be a huge help in planning educational programmes."
