B – Be Faithful
C – Condom
The ABC approach is without a doubt essential to any comprehensive HIV prevention

Quezon City, today, May 21 commemorates the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial
at the city hall covered walk.
The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial, coordinated by the Global Network of People living with HIV is one of the world’s oldest and largest grassroots mobilization
campaigns for HIV awareness in the world. Started in 1983, the International AIDS
Candlelight Memorial takes place every third Sunday in May and is led by a coalition
of some 1,200 community organizations in 115 countries.
During this event, the Quezon City health department shared the city’s best practices.

Peer Counseling is a component of Quezon City’s integrated and comprehensive
HIV Response Program. A program that has been recognized by UNAIDS as model for
Peer counseling is becoming an increasingly viable treatment option when working
with people living with HIV and AIDS, especially during the diagnostic process.
Unfortunately, little research has looked at the perceived benefits of peer counseling
from the perspectives of clients receiving the services and those providing the
services. In addition, research suggests that hope can help people living with HIV
to deal with the HIV diagnosis and to improve their lifestyles.
