MANILA – A Malacañang official sees nothing wrong if the Department of Health (DOH) will seek the help of celebrities in spreading awareness against HIV-Aids.

Deputy Presidential spokesman Ricardo Saludo said the celebrity endorsers would be a good idea but the concept of the advertisement should still be given primary consideration.

“If a certain policy seems to be good whatever that policy seems to be, well celebrity endorser helps to promote. So if a policy is good, then that’s fine but whether that policy is a policy of the government or not it’s a different issue,” he said.

Saludo avoided mentioning about condom advertisement which has been a hot topic between the DOH and the church groups.

He stressed that the DOH does not only promote the use of condoms as solution to curb HIV-Aids spread. (Jill Beltran/Sunnex)
