Pilipinas Shell Foundation, Inc. (PSFI) partnered with Project: Health, Help, Hope, Happiness (Project H4); The Love Yourself Inc. (TLY), the Department of Health (DOH) Region IV-B, and the City Government of Puerto Princesa in setting up Amos Tara!, a community centre designed to address the HIV/AIDS situation in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.
Every month, there are hundreds of new HIV/AIDS cases in the Philippines. In 2015 alone, 7,829 cases were recorded. Furthermore, in Palawan, HIV continues to thrive, with 40 new cases in 2015. In the same year, figures show that its capital, Puerto Princesa, ranked 3rd out of 36 cities having the highest HIV prevalence among men having sex with men (MSM); this is based on the 2015 Integrated HIV Behavioural Serologic Surveillance (IHBSS) conducted by the Epidemiology Bureau of DOH.
As a response to the need of the community, Project H4, TLY, DOH Region IV-B, and PSFI partnered in setting up a volunteer-run community centre, a safe haven where people can take an HIV test without the fear of being judged or looked down upon.
