World AIDS Day 2020
The Philippine National AIDS Council (PNAC) in partnership with the Department of Health (DOH) led the observance of this year’s World AIDS Day on December 01, 2020.
This year’s theme is “Global solidarity, shared responsibility”. This theme recognizes and celebrates the contribution of partners and stakeholders to the HIV response in the country. Health workers, civil society organizations, people living with HIV, and various agencies all play a vital role in eliminating the stigma and discrimination, as well as in providing accessible testing, treatment, care and support for People Living with HIV. Despite the presence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we should all remain focused and resolute in our mandate of preventing and reducing transmission.
