INTRODUCTION
AIDS is one of the diseases that have to be combated as reflected in the MillenniumDevelopment Goals and is also being addressed in the Department of Health's MediumTerm Development Plan.According to the November 2011 AIDS Registry published by the Department of Health,there were 212 new HIV Ab sero-positive individuals confirmed by the STD/AIDSCooperative Central Laboratory (SACCL) and reported to the HIV and AIDS Registry.This was 89% higher compared to the same period last year (2010) with 112 cases. The20-29 year (58%) age-group had the most number of cases.Too many young people in the Philippines are at risk for HIV infection. But despite
young people’s vulnerability to HIV infection, the
ir needs are often overlooked whennational and local AIDS strategies are designed and implemented.

Number: 1 Author: Admin Subject: Sticky Note Date: 1/20/2012 9:58:39 AMShould we really use the term "AIDS is a disease" or is there a more politically correct term for this statement? :)) Number: 2 Author: Admin Subject: Sticky Note Date: 1/20/2012 10:01:16 AMCan we rephrase the paragraph to make it more in line with the tone of the first two paragraphs. I mean, formal since this paragraph is a bit empathic. The first two paragraphsare intellectual statements kasi and this one is like emotional. :)) Number: 3 Author: Admin Subject: Sticky Note Date: 1/20/2012 10:03:25 AMAfter reading the paragraphs under this section, i suggest it would be better if we title it as " Rationale and Background of the National Young People's Planning Fora."
