Monday, December 1, 2014. JUAN CAAL Reporting: Belize today joins the rest of the International Community in observing World AIDS Day.
Here in the Toledo district, the local branch of the National AIDS Committee is partnering with the Punta Gorda community hospital to provide free HIV testing.
The event is being held at the Central Park in Punta Gorda town.
Chair of the Toledo chapter of the National AIDS Committee Joan Palma says that today’s observance and public event at the PG Central Park are designed to raise public awareness of the importance of educating ourselves and debunking myths and taboos in combating this global epidemic.
During the course of the day-long event, factual information on HIV/AIDS will be freely distributed to the general public.
Today, according to Palma, also serves to remind everyone of the importance of knowing their HIV status.
Getting tested is one way of spreading the education campaign on HIV/AIDS.
Today’s HIV testing at the PG Central Park is free of cost to the general public.
