Hundreds of people from across Metro Manila gathered at the Philippine Army Grandstand in Fort Bonifacio on Thursday to light candles for the lives lost to AIDS and recommit to the battle against HIV.

Taguig City held the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial on May 16, ahead of the global observance on Sunday, May 19.

The event, a local iteration of one of the oldest global campaigns for HIV awareness, focused on the theme, “One Big Fight for Health and Rights of People Living with HIV.”

At the event, Taguig City was recognized by the Department of Health as the Best Performing Local Government Unit for having tested the most number of persons for HIV during the HIV Testing Week, from May 8 to May 15.

Under the leadership of Mayor Lani Cayetano, Taguig addresses cases of HIV with several free counseling and testing services, and PLHIV treatment and monitoring services. Awareness raising is also addressed with trainings, lectures, and seminars, as well as coordination with non-government organizations and other civil society groups.

Just recently, Taguig City has also offered the first ever Door-to-Door HIV screening dubbed “Door-to-Door Counselling and Screening," through the Ready Test Go Initiative.

HIV counsellors will be driving around Taguig carrying information on the virus and screening kits. This would happen Mondays to Saturdays, 1 p.m. to 9p.m. Interested individuals will only need to contact the Taguig Social Hygiene Clinic at 0915-953-1389.
