Written by Jay-ar M. Arante

The campaign of the Rural Health Unit (RHU) of Malay in Boracay against Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and other illnesses is continuing.

According to Malay Health Education Promotion Officer, Arbie Aspira, they are going to establishments in Boracay Island in order to give reminders to workers and even sex workers here about HIV and other kinds of illnesses.

Allegedly, the move is one of the ways in order to prevent the increase in the number of HIV victims in particular.

Furthermore, the RHU aims to make all workers in Boracay clean and far from illnesses especially that the island is a place for tourism.

Aspira also added, to prevent a human being from falling ill, those who would want a lecture from their agency are welcome.

The RHU also reminded all workers and residents of Boracay to often consult a doctor especially when feeling sick.

In the past, Boracay became controversial because of the increase of sex workers who originated from different places.
