The local governments in these areas also need to come out with good policies to make use of the funding. Promoting the use of condoms, handling prostitution, etc. A lot of these problems actually also emerge from stupid cultural practices, especially in India, and the government's attitude towards brushing these problems under the carpet does not help at all.
