Bare-chested male models strutted through the glitzy ballroom in Bangkok to the beat of house music while dozens of young gay men waited anxiously, working up the nerve to have a blood test. The mostly female health team taking samples seemed incongruous next to the shirtless models circling the party, but the health workers' presence at the TestBKK event, Thailand's first mass HIV testing for gays, was sending a powerful message.

Isolated Peruvian tribes like Mashco Piro have clashed in the past with loggers, poachers and drug traffickers who invaded their jungle enclaves, but anthropologists say the lure of modern tools is now tempting them closer than ever to far-flung villages and tourist camps. Their sorties are dangerous, exposing them to the threat of violent encounters with terrified locals and modern-day diseases against which the hunter-gatherers have little immunity.

A man shows a serial number associated with an microchip of information implanted into a dog in Mexico City, July 11, 2013. Robbery and kidnapping of breed dogs have quadrupled during the last few years in Mexico, according to animal care and control organizations. Criminal gangs which operate mostly in public parks threaten owners with guns or use dogs in heat to lure their pets and kidnap them. Ransoms for these breed dogs can go up to an estimate of sevenfold the value of the pet. Canine Advocacy Programs suggest that the average cost of having adopted pets spayed or neutered and implanted with an identification chip is around $50. Picture taken July 11, 2013.

Doctors in Aleppo and Deir al-Zor have reported outbreaks of leishmaniasis, an endemic tropical disease transmitted by sand-flies that causes skin ulcers resembling leprosy, the World Health Organization (WHO) said. Poor waste management and lack of hygiene have fuelled its spread, but the U.N. agency is trying to deliver medicines to both hotspots, WHO spokesman Glenn Thomas told a news briefing.
