Litam said the members of the youth, who comprised a majority of the crowd at the event, need to arm themselves with knowledge and avoid the risks that are associated with the virus that gradually attacks the immune system.

She also called on the group to remember the victims of HIV/AIDS, which is on the rise, according to most recent data.

Also present in the event was Councilor Cecilia V. De Asis, who created the Naga City Multi-sectoral STI/HIV/AIDS Council.

The group of students and young professionals trooped to the plaza with balloons and candles for the awareness event.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM. Pirming enot. Pirming bago.
