More Malaysians were infected with HIV/AIDS via sexual transmission last year, making up 48.5% of the new cases of infections.

This is the first time that unguarded sexual activity has caused more new HIV/AIDS infection cases than drug use through injections.

Statistics from the Malaysian AIDS Council also revealed that homosexual and bisexual transmission cases have shot up last year, from 162 cases to 201.

New cases of HIV/AIDS infections last year numbered at 3,090.

The trend has changed. HIV/AIDS in Malaysia did not spread mostly by needle injections as most of us were made to believe.
