Hi Chris, Thanks very much for sharing a great story, which reflects how HIV has become in recent years an extremely serious challenge in the Philippines, and how the epidemic severely affected MSM communities. Clearly, there is a high level of ignorance about HIV testing and HIV prevention among the MSM communities. You and your team have done an excellent job, taking the lead in providing HIV education and testing for MSM communities in the past 18 months. It is impressive to hear that you have built up over 100 trained peer educators and HIV counsellors. I would also like to share with you that WB, in collobration with ADB and development partners, is stepping up support to the Philippines on HIV prevention, targeting MSM communities and injecting drug users. Let's hope that we can collaborate and learn from one another. I agree with your final statement that let's fight AIDS together, and we'll beat it. Thanks.
