High AIDS infection in the Philippines

AIDS infection and deaths in the world has already slowed down according to an international AIDS conference recently held in Australia.  

However it is a different story for the Philippines including Indonesia and Pakistan.  These countries were identified as the only 3 countries in the world with high AIDS infection for the year 2013.

The Philippine AIDS situation is getting worst.  The president of the AIDS Society in the Philippines has declared that the Philippines may be the next Africa.  Africa right now has the highest AIDS infection in the world and is considered as the main source of the infection.

We in the LGBT community must do our share in fighting HIV AIDS.   If we do not do anything about this, we will soon find ourselves grieving for our friends and even possibly a family member.

As I keep on saying for the past years and even decade, ALWAYS be responsible for yourself and others!  Practice safe or safer sex and use a condom!
