Did you know that the current Philippine AIDS Law (R.A. 8504) is being amended as we speak (read)? It's more inclusive. It aims to protect the rights of people both infected and affected with HIV. and did you know that the Commission on Human Rights, Department of Justice, and United Nations has put up a redress mechanism to address discriminatory acts towards PLHIV?
If you want a copy of the proposed amendment on the R.A. 8504 , and a copy of Redress Mechanism Manual, send me a message and an email address so I can send you a PDF copy of the documents.
For those who want to have a (free) hard copy of the Redress Mechanism Manual, please contact (below) for reservation and pick-up:
