Town to adopt its own Local AIDSAIDS Council

THE Local AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) Council (LAC) ordinance of the municipality of Carmen had undergone a public hearing last October 18, 2006 at the Carmen Public Market.

The ordinance which is sponsored by Hon. Nathaniel Binlod, the Sangguniang Bayan chairman of the Committee on Health, had underwent its 1st reading and is hoped to undergo its 2nd reading within this month and is anticipated to be approved before this year ends.

The Local AIDS Council will serve as the central advisory, planning and policy making body with regards to the prevention and control of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) including Human Immuno Virus (HIV) which causes AIDS.

The council will be chaired by the municipal mayor with the SB chair of the Committee on health as the vice-chair. The SB vice-chair of the Committee on Health, municipal health officer, municipal schools superintendent, municipal Social Welfare Officer, one representative from accredited organization of entertainment industry and 2 representatives from accredited non-government organizations actively involved in programs, activities and advocacy with STI/HIV/AIDS prevention will sit as the members of the said council.

Under this ordinance, all operators, managers, entertainers of entertainment establishment, beauty parlors, hotel, lodging house, resorts, barber shops and massage centers to attend seminars on STD/HIV/AIDS prevention to be conducted by the Municipal Health Department, otherwise no permit to operate shall be granted to the afore mentioned establishments.

All entertainers, masseurs and other similar occupation will also undergo compulsory weekly medical check-up (gram staining) which will be conducted on regular basis at the Society Hygiene Clinic of the Municipal health department and the results of the examination will be held in confidential by all health professionals and workers. It can be recalled that Republic Act 8504 or the National AIDS Law mandates the organizational of Local AIDS Council. (Jhaz/PGMA)
