Organized by the team from different departments and units led by the Hospital Infection Control and Epidemiology Center head, Dr. Mark Kristoffer U. Pasayan, the event featured 50 TMC South Luzon doctors, other healthcare professionals, and guests who walked the runway in their best outfits and even helped raised funds or donated to the event beneficiary – Project Ribbon’s Duyan – : Cradling for Children with HIV program that aims to provide care and support to children with HIV in the Philippines and TMC-SL’s YACAP (Young Adult Care Assitance Program).    

The group included Santa Rosa City Mayor Arlene Arcillas with Dr. Jesus Julio Ancheta, TMC South Luzon Chief Medical Officer as her escort; TMC South Luzon Chief Operations Officer, Dr. Jose Enrico, and spouse, Mrs. Christine Juliano; Dr. Maria Gina Nazareth, president of Philippine College of Physicians Foundation, and the doctors and staff of TMC South Luzon.

“This event is held in celebration of World AIDS Day and to raise funds to help provide care and support to children with HIV.  It aims to focus our attention on a medical and social affliction, a lot of members of our society are still uncomfortable with.  People with HIV-AIDS are often burdened with its stigma and often suffer from discrimination.  We hope that, with continued public education, more will realize that HIV patients are like any other member of society who deserve the understanding, care and support for their disease,” says Dr. Cesar Ramon G. Espiritu, TMC South Luzon President and CEO in his virtual message during the program.
