Guam - Friday marked the fifth anniversary for the Guahan Project's Pacific Resource and Training Center. In 2006 the PRTC received a substantial grant from the Office of Minority Health and currently serves as the only AIDS service organization in the Western Pacific.
Guahan Project Director Kate Baltazar told KUAM News, "We can grow and continue the fight against HIV/AIDS even more in the Western Pacific…this celebration marks not only the fifth anniversary of the PRTC, but the Guahan Project formerly coming under WestCare. And I think Guahan strengthens WestCare in our position in the region to provide quality services with HIV/AIDS rapid testing."
The PRTC now offers rapid HIV testing, which means results take only fifteen minutes and not months.
