In addition to the condoms at a 70 percent-supported price, the program also has a peer-to-peer network to reach the community of men who have sex with men (MSM).
At the event, a representative from the Committee for AIDS Prevention and Control in Ho Chi Minh City said that MSM prostitutes face high danger of being infected with HIV/AIDS, as well as more discrimination than other at-risk people.
Ho Chi Minh City will also have programs delivering condoms free of charge for male prostitutes and drug users.
