Friday, November 30th, 2018

Health celebrates the round table 'HIV / AIDS: There is no reason to relax' on the occasion of the commemoration tomorrow of World AIDS Day

The Ministry of Health announced today that it will almost double the investment destined in 2019 for the prevention of AIDS.

On the occasion of the celebration of World AIDS Day, which is being celebrated tomorrow, today the round table was held 'HIV / AIDS: There is no reason to relax' and the screening of the film '120 beats per minute'.

Throughout 2018, 122,420 euros have been invested in HIV prevention actions, which are mainly concentrated in the acquisition of condoms and lubricants, information and awareness campaigns through town halls, universities and youth collectives;

as well as sexual education campaigns aimed at Secondary students.

Of this figure, 16,643 euros are allocated to the acquisition of 1,375 test kits for the diagnosis of this disease and hepatitis C.

The Minister of Health, Manuel Villegas, said that "it is important to stress to the population the importance of using condoms in their sexual relations when they may pose a risk, so we have distributed 320,000 prophylactics this year."

In this sense, "we must not forget that the price of a condom is only a few cents, when contracting AIDS condemns you for life to a treatment that has a cost of 6,000 euros each year," he added.

In this same line, the head of Health warned that "there is excessive relaxation regarding this disease, motivated, in principle, because it has become chronic and there are treatments that have improved exponentially their survival, but that does not justify, at all, that by not using a condom, AIDS is contracted. "


In 2017, 80,410 HIV tests were performed at the Murcia Health Service (SMS) centers and 114 new HIV diagnoses were recorded, representing 3.2 percent of the total cases registered in Spain.

The SMS counted 2,683 patients on antiretroviral treatment in 2017, which entailed a cost of 15.2 million euros.

During the 2009-2017 period, the average annual incidence of HIV infection was 71.8 cases per million inhabitants in the Region of Murcia, of which 81 percent of the new diagnoses of HIV infection are male and female. The average age at which they were diagnosed was 36 years in men and women.

In the Region of Murcia, 88.7 percent of new diagnoses were attributable to sexual transmission in those years, 4.6 percent to people who inject drugs, 0.6 percent to mother-to-child transmission, and 6 percent remaining was not possible to collect information from clinical data.

"In light of these data on HIV incidence, we consider it necessary to reinforce this line of action, hence we allocate twice the resources for next year," said Villegas.

From the beginning of the epidemic until 2017, 1,975 cumulative cases of AIDS have been registered in the Region of Murcia, 2.3 percent of the 87,369 cases registered in Spain.


Among the objectives that the Ministry of Health has set this year is the early diagnosis of HIV, to materialize it a course is being taught to the 85 heads of health centers in the Region, with the aim of detecting the disease in early stages and reduce mortality.

In addition, 71,000 informative diptychs have been distributed with condoms, with the collaboration of local councils, and a training course aimed at adolescents on the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases is being developed.

To defend the interim teachers, the "union unity" is essential

Friday, November 30th, 2018

CSIF participated yesterday in the debate proposed by the association of temporary teachers AIDMUR on 'The Future of the interim official in our Region'

CSIF participated yesterday in the debate proposed by the association of temporary teachers AIDMUR on 'The future of the interim official in our region', where he called for less union confrontation and more "unity of action between unions", to ensure the fixity of the interim teaching staff of the Region and while this does not happen, "ensure" the permanence in the waiting lists of this group

The interim association AIDMUR commented in the course of the debate that it seemed incomprehensible to the ANPE and CCOO trade unions to present and know their position, despite being invited, on such a relevant and sensitive issue.

Especially when next Tuesday, December 4, trade union elections are held for teachers and workers want to know the position of each union to decide their vote.

CSIF was the first organization to open the debate, asking the rest of the unions present (STERM-Intersindical, UGT, SIDI and SIDEMUR) the need for a "unitary proposal" of the trade unions in this matter to be brought before the Administration, political parties and media.

From CSIF we see that the workers demand from the unions the obligation to find "solutions" to their problems, and they want us to find common points among the union organizations that allow the interns of our Region to become permanent, and while the be, continue to work on Teaching waiting lists.

CSIF also placed special emphasis on vacancies in private charter schools being offered on a "voluntary" basis, firstly to interns of public education in order of their waiting lists, given that the salaries of teachers of the concerted education- private are paid with public funds.

In addition to that the interns of the public have passed one or several selective processes of competitive character and of free concurrence to be in the public lists.

If this is not the case for the interim of the agreement, paid with money from all citizens, in CSIF we ask that in order to fill the vacancies of the private arranged centers, the principles of "equality, merit and ability" should be followed in the face of affinity criteria, friendship or "purchase" of places.

The debate continued with the interventions of the rest of the unions that "unfortunately" spent more time criticizing the actions of the other organizations, instead of looking for the points that unite us.

CSIF focused its interventions on defending the need for selective processes, not of a memorial nature as up to now, betting on a contest or a working memory, and a contest phase where the teaching experience is valued as has already been done to consolidate the interns of the Murcian Health Service.

The main interest of the interim teacher is to be fixed to be able to dedicate body and soul to his vocation, which is teaching.

It is not acceptable, that the politicians of the government of turn take out the memorial oppositions in the periods of their electoral campaigns, to then leave the rest of years without hardly oppositions.

Why do the teaching interns have to continually re-examine something that they have already approved? Why do workers who are demonstrating, day by day, their teaching capacity for years have to go back to competing?

CSIF made clear that "we support" those measures of the Association that call us to serve so that current interim stabilize their teaching positions, as our electoral program is always open to proposals for improvement.

Once again, CSIF is committed to a PUBLIC QUALITY EDUCATION "with everyone and for everyone", because we are all teachers and we are proud to be.

"God has given me the gift of communication and I felt that he was calling me to make his Word known"

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Héctor Madrona López, deacon

This Sunday, December 2, at 6:00 p.m., in the parish of Our Lady of the Assumption of Sewer, will be ordained a priest.

He was one of the great voices in the communication of the Region of Murcia and a few years ago he changed the microphone of the radio for the cross of Christ.

A late vocation was that of Héctor Madrona López Sánchez, who at 58 years of age will be ordained a priest on Sunday, December 2, in the parish where he has held his diaconate, in Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de Alcantarilla.

"The Lord has done a great miracle with me and above all has managed to transform my heart, despite my resistance," says the deacon, who looks back is aware that God "knocked" at his door in infinity of but the noise of the world made him entertain himself in other things;

recognizes that there are many people behind his vocation that God has used to reach him;

and he is fully aware that obeying God does not lose his freedom but that he wins it all and "a world of precious possibilities opens up".

He is saddened by the hatred of the Church through which he explains that he has discovered Jesus.

"There is a lot of ecclesiofobia and clerophobia and feeding that anger and suspicion is very harmful.

The Church gives values ​​and transcendence, it is necessary because it is the vehicle that God needs to take us to him.

That's why it's more necessary than ever. "

He assures that he was a very optimistic person and wanted to see everything as a gift for his own effort and merit, "but he was not happy".

And so began the need to fill an inner void and began to explore in a religiosity "of the supermarket".

Hector has tried to find God in many places.

A search that almost a decade ago took him to India.

"I was looking for teachers and I found the Teacher, the only true God".

There he would suffer a change in his life or as he has described: "a true metamorphosis", and that is when he abandons himself to God.

On his return he leaves his job in communication, "without compunction and without grief", and his life gives "a radical turn".

He affirms that he felt that little by little his resistances to God were diminishing while he let himself be loved by Jesus, something that according to him was complicated.

Back in Spain he made several pilgrimages on foot, the last one took him to the Sanctuary of Fuensanta.

It was there at night and the Benedictines told him that the brothers of the Light could give him lodging.

A night that remembers with special affection and emotion.

And there he stayed six years and two months under the spiritual direction of Father Francisco, whose first preaching leads to fire burned in his heart, "it seemed that everything told me."

As a brother of the Light he began his studies at the San Fulgencio Theological Institute and at the same time felt the call to the priesthood.

"God has given me the gift of communication and I felt that he was calling me to make his Word known to the people."

With the studies almost completed, he leaves the community to enter San Fulgencio Seminary and starts "a new adventure" in a youthful environment in which he has not felt strange, but welcomed and loved.

The motto of his ordination will be "Rejoice with me because I have found the sheep that had been lost to me", from the Gospel of Luke, because he considers himself to be that "borreguico that the Lord has in his arms and who welcomes with much mercy.

Not only was he lost because he was misplaced in life, to seek happiness where he should not, but because he did not know Jesus Christ. "

The priestly ordination of Hector will be this Sunday, December 2, at 6:00 p.m., in the Parish of Our Lady of the Assumption of Sewer, and his first Mass on Monday, at 8:30 p.m., in the Parish of San Miguel Arcángel of Murcia.
