Hon. Herbert Constantine M. Bautista

Community Leadership Messages

“HIV is one of the complex diseases that need to be addressed not only of the medical aspect but with a multisectoral and multifactorial approach. Even us, RITM which is the most prominent treatment hub in the country that caters to PLHIV, we cannot do it alone. That is why we need partners like the Quezon City Health Department, and it's Service Delivery Network to address and provide quality services for our PLHIV."

Mr. Roldan S. Bucal, RN
Treatment Care & Support Coordinator
Research Institute for Tropical Medicine

“Among more than 100 HIV-positive cases handled by the Service Delivery Network, one was that of a pregnant adolescent girl. Had the network not provided referral and proper testing, her baby could also have ended HIV-positive. The network has done a truly wonderful job.”

“One of the most important thing for PLHIV is to access services, ideally you want all these services to be provided in one place for them, sometimes you have to provide specific services like mental health or social protection services, so you need to be referred and thats the time we can say that there is a service delivery network, and its very important that the referral between the service provider is efficient and able to be track by the division that the services are provided to them.”

Ms. Leila Coppens
Consultant, HIV/AIDS
World Health Organization

“Among the most difficult challenges about being a PLHIV is not knowing where to seek help and the fear of being discriminated against when one does seek the services one needs. With the Service Delivery Network, we have seen how we are able to deliver the various services needed by the community via different contact points. When a PLHIV goes to a Treatment Hub, for example, it is possible to refer this person to social services or to legal services and to community support groups, and vice versa. That's the beauty of having a Network that works. We just have to ensure that our Network works.”
