It's been revealed that people with HIV Aids in Papua New Guinea are deliberately infecting others.

The Post Courier reports the revelation came during a UNDP HIV/Aids Leadership training programme under way in Port Moresby.

Delegates were told of an HIV positive man who had infected 300 others in the East Sepik region.

There was also a report of a woman who revealed on her hospital deathbed she would take the lives of 150 other people with her.

They also learned of a man with the HIV Aids virus, who had just married for the twelfth time, despite having lost three of his wives and at least eight children to the disease.
