Higher and higher

Another grim statistics for HIV in the Philippines.

Department of Health official Doc Eric Tayag (‏@erictayag) reported today that "#DOH adds 388 new #HIV cases for APR 2013, highest ever for monthly new cases  Total for 2013 is 1,477  Total since 1984 is 13,179."

Every month, we have been posting the highest ever monthly new cases and I don't see the end in sight.

This is because I believe that the increasing number of cases of HIV in the Philippines is not anymore due to the lack of information and the conduct of an aggressive campaign against the spread of the ailment but more already on the apathy of those who belong to the high-risk sector of the society.

Because they prefer unprotected sex over safe sex, they already throw caution to the wind and do it.

What do you guys think?
