Miss Universe 2016 was the most celebrated Philippine event so far. But what makes it extra significant is its advocacy on raising HIV and AIDS awareness and education through the National Charity Gift Auction. And Positive Action Foundation Philippines, Inc. (PAFPI) was fortunate to be named as the auction’s beneficiary that was held last January 23, 2017 at Forbes Ballroom, Conrad Hotel in Pasay City. The event was attended by the contestants from Miss Universe 2016, the queen herself, MU 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, notable people in the Miss Universe pageant, people in government and embassies, and various celebrities.
Pursuant to Article III of the AIDS Law on Testing, Screening and Counseling, as well as Administrative Order 2010-0028 issued by the DOH, PAFPI in collaboration with DOH through the latter’s IDO and SACCL will facilitate the conduct of “Training on HIV Counseling to Testing (HCtT).” Towards DOH-certification, the training is in response to the increasing demand for HIV counseling and testing services.
