Aljur Abrenica supports PLHIV

Filipino celebrity Aljur Abrenica expresses his belief that everyone can be instruments in ensuring that the number of people who get infected with HIV is lessened, just as he extends his support for PLHIVs by stressing the need to stand up against the stigma and discrimination they face.

The need to stand up against discrimination faced by people living with HIV is something everyone should do.

So says Filipino celebrity Aljur Abrenica in an exclusive interview with Outrage Magazine, as he also stressed that “we can help other Filipinos to take care of themselves,” he said in the vernacular.

Abrenica first came into Filipino consciousness in StartStruck, a talent competition, where he eventually bagged the title “Ultimate Male Survivor” in its fourth season. After winning the talent search competition, he rose to fame by playing several memorable drama and fantaserye roles.

For Abrenica, everyone “can be instruments in ensuring that the number of people who get infected with HIV is lessened.”

He similarly cautioned people to remain self-aware, as this could help lessen the risks of one getting infected with HIV.

Mag-ingat. Mag-ingat. Huwag masyadong padalos-dalos,” Abrenica said. “Mag-isip muna bago gumawa ng isang bagay.”
