SETAC, Puerto Vallarta's LGBT Wellness Center, is celebrating 10 years of operations with a party free to the Community at Industry nightclub on Saturday, November 16, from 7:00-10:00 pm.

The SETAC team is using the occasion to not only thank its many long-time sponsors and benefactors, but also to announce several exciting new community projects under the slogan "Building a Healthy and Unified Community," including delivery of a new van that will be used to deliver important services to key populations throughout the entire city, something never possible before.

The SETAC 'Mobile HIV Detection Unit' was one of the few social assistance projects chosen to receive government funding through a competitive grant process in which numerous non profit organizations in the State of Jalisco participated.

The van, which was recently delivered, will allow SETAC to expand their Brigadas por la Vida (Brigades for Life) program, which takes the tools of education and HIV prevention - rapid tests, condoms, lubricants, brochures, prevention packages, etc. - directly to the people of Puerto Vallarta and surrounding communities in the Banderas Bay region.
