As number of new HIV/AIDS cases zooms to 1,098 - highest since 1984
I respectfully urge the Committee on Health to urgently tackle all the pending bills on HIV-AIDS and convene hearings on them.  The Senate already has a consolidated version and it is waiting for the House counterpart measure.
As soon as the House hammers out a consolidated bill on HIV policy, I will formally urge President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to certify it as urgent, so the two bills can move even faster and more likely become law before Congress goes on recess on December 16.
It is no longer necessary for me to file another bill to add to the ones already filed. My colleagues have crafted good proposed measures. I prefer to fine-tune them when it is deliberated at committee and during plenary.
As of latest count there are 16 bills in the Committee on Health and two more on discrimination against persons with HIV pending before the Committee on Human Rights.
I am in consultation with concerned stakeholders and will present my suggestions at the proper time, so that the consolidated bill we produce will address the crucial issues facing us about arresting the surge of HIV nationwide and across all age groups, especially among the millennials.
The latest statistics on HIV in our country have become even more frightening. Congress must act fast to give the Department of Health and other concerned sectors the means and resources to fight HIV-AIDS now.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
