Written by Jay-Ar Arante

The Aklan Provincial Health Office is now preparing for the celebration of the Worlds AIDS Day on December.

As one of their advocacies, the Aklan PHO will be conducting a beauty contest on December 1st in Kalibo.

On the said beauty contest, the participants are to share the ways on how to avoid the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) through their talents and answers on interviews or the Q & A.

The event will be attended by Doctors from different areas in Aklan to educate and disseminate to the masses particularly the youth, the information and knowledge about the condition.

The PHO has been conducting like activities annually to further explain AIDS and HIV and to make it clearer to people, how to avoid and deal with it.

In line with this, the province has recorded 24 cases of the condition for 2013.

The PHO meanwhile, would like to inform the public of the provincial hospital’s free treatment hub for those who wish to get themselves checked.
