The Philippines has obtained about $20.4 million (about P890 million) in grants from the Global Fund to boost its not-so successful campaign to halt the spread of the dreaded HIV-AIDS disease.
Teresita Marie Bagasao, country coordinator of the United Nations Program on HIV-AIDS (UNAIDS) said the Philippine campaign against the killer disease has long been “underfunded.” She said that aside from funds, there were other “factors that must be resolved first, like government support and a real commitment to address the HIV-AIDS problem.”
The Catholic Church in the Philippines is lobbying hard against legislation that will allot more government funds for condom distribution and mandate safe sex education in all schools.
“If the country will continue to put the HIV-AIDS issue at the backseat of its priorities, cases will continue to rise.”
