December 8, 2009

On World AIDS Day, the president of the Foundation for the Welfare and Dignity of People Living with AIDS said more than 10,000 Panamanians are living with HIV and another 500 cases are recorded annually. Orlando Quintero also said 15- to 49-year-olds are the population most affected by the virus. "The government must keep on with prevention campaigns all the time and not just once a year," he added. Social organizations marked the global commemoration with activities including handing out brochures on HIV prevention.
