We need you. 

The UN Secretary General's Special Envoy on HIV and AIDS for Asia and the Pacific, Dr. Prasada Rao, will be on official mission to the Philippines on 26-30 August 2013. He will have meetings with high level government officials from the Executive and Legislative branches of government, as well as meetings with civil society alliances, including religious leaders, to discuss the HIV epidemic in the Philippines. 

From today, @UNAIDS_AP will be sending a series of tweets about HIV in the Philippines and urging action to #stopHIV. These include:
