Boracay Island joined the celebration of World AIDS Day.
This is to show support to people with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
The Municipal Health Center (MHO) together with the Boracay Action Group, Philippine Red Cross, Boracay PNP and other organizations in the island led the parade for Aids Walk yesterday.
The parade from beach front station 3 to station 2 was followed by a ‘candle lighting’ and a short awareness campaign program.
Due to the continuing spread of HIV/AIDS in the country, the MHO have made a free-AIDS consultation yesterday in the island.
Meanwhile, the World Aids Day is celebrated on the first day of December in different parts of the world to promote unity in fighting the deadly HIV.
