Pursuant to Republic Act No. 8504 or the Philippine AIDS Prevention and Control Act of 1998, and other related issuances, the DILG as the Vice-Chairperson of the Philippine National AIDS Council reiterates the role of local government units in response to HIV and AIDS.

 

Through MC No. 2013-29, all cities are enjoined and all provinces and municipalities are encouraged to create their respective Local AIDS Council/Coordinating Body to promote synergy between LGUs and various stakeholders. LGUs are also enjoined to protect the rights of people living with HIV and AIDS.
