140 OFWs ARE HIV-POSITIVE AS OF JAN & FEB THIS YEAR

OWWA must address continuing spread of HIV among OFWs, nurse-solon says
                     
OWWA must improve the anti-HIV-AIDS component of its welfare programs for OFWs.

Just-released data from the HIV-AIDS Registry show 140 OFWs tested positive for HIV infection last January and February.  For the whole year of 2017, 814 OFWs were HIV-positive. So that means the total so far from last year and this year stands at 954.

The same data also point out that 5,537 OFWs got HIV from January 1984 to February 2018.

Those 5,537 cases represent 11 percent of total HIV-AIDS cases of 52,280.

Eleven percent is a very significant figure and this is more than enough basis for the OWWA to give attention to this problem.

Most of the 5,537 patients (70 percent) got HIV through male-to-male sexual contact.

OWWA needs more tools and projects to combat loneliness and promote safe sex practices among OFWs especially male OFWs.

The approach of OWWA must be with caring and concern. (END)
