I am a lawyer working for the rights of People Who Use Drugs, PLHIVs, and LGBTIQs. I am a consultant in the Senate of the Philippines and worked for the enactment of the new HIV and AIDS Policy Act of 2018, a human rights-centered, evidence-based legislation in the Philippines which shifted the policy and the response to cater to key affected population and opened spaces for Harm Reduction in the country. I am one of the founding members of StreetLawPH, an organization of lawyers which provides access to justice services for People Who Use Drugs in the Philippines.
