Department of Health

A international funding has meant that by 2016, epidemiologists expect that 30,000 to 50,000 Filipinos would get infected with HIV. This means that the government would need to spend P900M to P1.5B in treatment alone.

Preventing the spread of the virus would not only mean averting the economic cost of an HIV epidemic, it would likewise forestall the human cost of the disease.

"With cancelation of the next round of funding from Global Fund to Fight Aids, we also urge the national government to spend more domestic money to fight HIV and start by setting up a 400M peso Emergency Fund for HIV and AIDS to prevent the cutting down of crucial prevention, treatment, care and support services."
