Manila: Activists and organisations across the world have been leading initiatives for bringing awareness regarding safe sex and encouraging people to use protection to avoid HIV by distributing condoms among other activities.

But despite HIV being a major cause of death in Africa and other parts of the world, the situation remains grave and shocking trends like indulging in unsafe sex as a fetish is said to be gaining ground. In such a situation some in Philippines suggest that distributing condoms is clearly not enough.

 

The president of the Federation of Associations of Private Schools and Administrators said that authorities should convince HIV/AIDS patients to come out and share their stories with people as a deterrent from unsafe sex.

He said that such patients should be encouraged to talk on TV and radio in order to promote safe sex among young people who will quickly absorb accounts by victims themselves.

He also suggested that patients can also be offered financial support for such initiatives.
