MANILA (UCAN) -- "At the end of our journey, we will face our creator; we need you to help prepare us," Noel Pascual, an HIV-positive person, shared at the launch of a manual on HIV and AIDS.

Pascual, 43, was one of about 50 people who attended the July 11 launch of the two-volume Training Manual on HIV and AIDS for Catholic Church Pastoral Workers. UNAIDS, the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS, developed the manual with Catholic Philippine institutions.
