HIV - AIDS - The Philippine Case

Despite criticisms met by DOH Secretary Cabral, she insisted that she will continue in distributing condoms until her term ends.For info, she had led the information dissemination of the deadly Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrom or better know as AIDS. Though CBCP has been very vocal in condoning claiming that its very immoral for the department to give condoms coz it only condones immorality and upholds sex before marriage. But for the figures continuely increasing in the Philippines for the confirmed cases of AIDS, is there the best way out in this dilemma? Abstinenence and being faithful are just few of the considerable thoughts in preventing the disease but other than that - condom is still THE ONLY and the last remedy.
Let me share to you some fast facts:


33 Million infections worldwide
4,218 Filipinos infected since 1984
629 Filipinos infected in 2009
80 Filipinos infected in October 2009

I dont know if your here already about this site, but of course to those blogger addict out there, they will be very familiar about this site. Actually this is just my first encounter and i found it too amazing. First because thye have different strategy and i liked it, in a more personal note.
BlogUpp is actually a blog promotion and at the same time blog directory network service but unlike the rest and the usual blog directory service that you will add your link in their site. In this site, their broadxasting is thru blog widget, thru blog directory and blog discovery toolbar, and also they have premium offers to some bloggers and advertisers as well.
What i like most here based on my first look is that blogger who are not really that well known in the bloghosphere has the chance to gain traffic and page rank.There is mutual sharing of interests, blogger connections and sustainable intercommunication. Hope BlogUpp can really help me promote my site.
Discovering the new is exciting.
