By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) is conducting testing for HIV and other diseases on Friday in Benque Viejo del Carmen on the occasion of Regional Testing Day 2022.

The Regional Testing Day against HIV/AIDS has been observed in Belize since 2011. It’s an initiative started in 2007 as Caribbean Regional Testing Day by the Pan Caribbean Partnership Against HIV/AIDS (PANCAP).

The testing in Benque Viejo del Carmen will be conducted at the Cancha Marshalleck from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm.

“Visit with us at the Cancha Marshalleck, Benque Viejo del Carmen to get your HIV Test among many other free tests,” said the MOHW.

The Ministry is also conducting testing against malaria and tuberculosis.

Additionally, they are conducting vital testing and giving COVID-19 vaccinations to children from 5 to 11 years of age.

Taking advantage of the event, several organizations like the National Drug and Abuse Control Council (NDACC), the Police Department, the Department of Youth Services, and GOBelize, will have booths displaying their services.

“HIV testing began in Dangriga and Punta Gorda [Wednesday] and will continue across the nation [Friday], June 24th,” said the National Aids Commission.

Testing in Punta Gorda will be carried out at Central Park from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Friday.

Testing will also be conducted at the Gabriel Hoare Market in Corozal Town, the Orange Walk Central Park, the Old Habet Parking Lot in Dangriga, the Old Market in Belmopan, Battlefield Field Park in Belize City, and at 28 Pescador Drive, in front of the San Carlos Medical Center, in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
