MAZATLAN.- In 2021, around 2,000 more positive cases of HIV/AIDS were detected, and although they are no more than in 2020, there is still a concern, said Misael Muñoz Calderón, in charge of the Protection area of Sharing Challenges AC

“Not only in Mexico, in the world there was an increase in recent diagnoses, if it is a peak that increased and that turned on some lights for everyone, not because Covid is everywhere right now there ceases to be heart or brain diseases, in the end After all, viruses and bacteria do not understand the political reasons of humans,” Muñoz Calderón pointed out.
He commented that the distribution of condoms, the agency carries a campaign of free tests for the detection of HIV / AIDS, of which they are carried out in offices through appointments that can be requested at the numbers 6691-22-08-48 or at 6692-44-77-21, with Missal or Deisy Balam.
