HIV infection on the rise among RP youth, says UN agency
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) cases among Filipino youth "have been increasing at an unprecedented rate," the United Nations representative’s office in Manila has warned.

"And while the country is still within the target of less than one percent of the population for HIV—the AIDS-causing virus—the rising number of HIV cases has become a cause for alarm," said the UN office in a report.

The report, a copy of which was furnished the Inquirer, said, "HIV cases among the 15-24 age group nearly tripled from 41 in 2007 to 110 in 2008."
