Mayabeque, Cuba: For the first time in a decade, Jaruco reaches the World Day of the Fight against AIDS, without positive cases of HIV in a year.

According to Ofelia Delgado Padrón, health educator from the Municipal Public Health Directorate, the good news is due to the sum of many individual responsibilities and intersectoral work in Primary Care, including free access to antiretrovirals and other basic services.

In terms of care for people living with HIV / AIDS, this year stood out, and despite the coronavirus pandemic, a clinical trial with Biomodulin T, a natural biological immunomodulator applied successfully for eight months to two patients in this territory.

This day is an opportunity to support those involved in the fight against HIV. This year, the theme of the conference is #HablaConmigoAbiertamente.

The campaign aims to raise awareness, especially health workers, about the needs of young people and encourage them to participate in reducing stigma and discrimination against those most vulnerable to this infection.

Discrimination is a major barrier that prevents many from accessing health care.
