HIV Testing in the Philippines – What you need to know and what you must know.

HIV Testing in the Philippines – How to get tested.

The Department of Health now ranks Philippines as one of the countries that has the fastest growing HIV epidemic in the world with a prevalence rate of 5% nationwide. There is a 20-25% prevalence rate in Metro Manila and 15-20% prevalence rate in Cebu. This rate dwarfed the prevalence rate in South Africa, which has the largest population of HIV positive individuals in the world, with a mere 4.7%. Prevalence rate refers to the percentage of individual affected by the disease at specific time. With that in mind, we can say that right now, in a population of 110 Million Filipinos, there are 5.5 Million individuals currently living with HIV.

Mere 5 years ago when I started making this blog, The Philippines is a low prevalence country with less than 1% of the population affected by HIV. This rapidly growing epidemic if left uncontrolled will eventually make The Philippines at par with South Africa with 1 out 10 individuals affected with HIV. So what went wrong? As a nurse with 15 years experience handling HIV cases and working actively with HIV positive individuals, here are my personal conclusions, do take note that this conclusions are not even close with the official conclusion of the Department of Health on why HIV became a rapidly growing epidemic in The Philippines. I personally think that their conclusion is too traditional and not in touch with the modern activities of our youth.

  1. DOH says that the resistance of the Church to some forms of birth control is a contributing factor on the HIV epidemic right now. I say that HIV is most commonly seen in the young population. A population that makes their own decision and is rebellious to the church teachings. Though the Church could have cause some sort of contribution, I do believe that the lack of sex education in our school particularly to our youth is a more blameable culprit than the Church. Did you know that people ages 14 to 30 makes up the 95% of newly diagnosed HIV cases each month and the median age of affected individual for the last 5 years is just 28 years old?
  2. DOH says prostitution or sex for money is a contributing factor of the epidemic and should be eradicated. I say that, prostitution cannot be eradicated. Since the dawn of human civilization, there is prostitution and it is something that is very hard to control much less eradicated from our society. What DOH can do is to provide an ID system and free monthly checkup to our sex workers to protect them as well as the people that they serve. This will also encourage the client to only have sex with a “clean” sex worker. This will also further educate our sex workers on proper ways of protecting themselves from different sexually transmitted infection as well as unwanted pregnancy.
  3. DOH says that persons under 18 who wants to test for HIV should require parental consent. I say that, I have clients with HIV at age 13, 14, 15… and that is because of failure in health promotion. The accessibility of casual sex thru apps like Grindr and other dating apps makes it very easy for 2 complete strangers to have sex consensually and thus, spreading the virus like wildfire to our young and techie population. These individuals would never dare to ask their parents permission to go with them and get tested, our culture against premarital sex and our bigotry against the LGBT makes it impossible to do so. HIV testing should be accessible to ANYONE at ANY AGE on their own volition.

THE CURRENT STATISTICS (2017)

It is estimated that there 1,000 reported HIV cases per month since the 6 months of 2016. At that rate, we can assume that there are 30 to 50 reported HIV cases daily. This does not include unreported cases. Unreported cases are HIV positive individuals who do not know they are infected. The epidemic growth rate is about 200% per year. This means that if not controlled, we could see a tenfold growth of HIV cases (300-500 cases per day) within the next 10 years.

HOW TO GET TESTED: HIV TESTING IN THE PHILIPPINES

One of the most important thing to do to prevent transmission is knowing your status. HIV is a very controllable disease as long as it is detected early and has not yet done major damage to your organs most specially the Liver, Kidneys and the Brain. There are many ways of getting tested for HIV in the Philippines. We will discuss each of them, one by one including their advantages and disadvantages.

I. Hospitals

Testing by going to hospitals is one of the most common means of getting tested. There are 5 hospitals in our country that specializes with HIV counseling and testing as well as referrals in case you tested positive and needing further treatment. In no particular order: RITM, San Lazaro Hospital, St. Lukes Medical Center both in Quezon City and Global, Makati Medical Center and Medical City in Ortigas. Do take note that the cost for HIV testing is around 1,100 to 3,800 in the private hospitals I mentioned.

PROS: If done correctly, results are very accurate. This is also the only results acknowledged in various employment and immigration requirements.

CONS: There is always an issue with regards to privacy and confidentiality getting tested  in any hospital. Though privacy is protected by our health care professionals, there are many incidents of information leakage caused by poor protocol with regards to transfer of information such as students getting free access to medical records without permission or a slip of tongue during a conversation of one of the member of the health care team handling the HIV case. Hacking is another risk when it comes to electronically stored medical information and records of medication being dispensed from the Pharmacy and to whom.

When it comes to public hospitals, though uncommon, there are recorded cases of results being switched between patients. It is not unheard of that a certain person tested positive though in reality, he is negative simply because a specimen sample was incorrectly labeled with his name. Lapse in judgment and concentration of our overworked and underpaid medical professionals is the main culprit in most cases.

II. Free tests done by Volunteer groups

HIV Test Philippines
We have friendly, volunteer groups that do testing for free. You can call them and schedule a visit and let them know that you are interested in getting tested.

LOVE YOURSELF MALATE HUB
#1850 Leon Guinto Street, Malate, Manila.
Contact: 353-8922

LOVE YOURSELF ANGLO HUB
Unit 5, 3/F, Anglo Building, #715-A Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City.
Contact: 0915-366-5683

PROS: Free and they offer counselling as well. Staff are very friendly, professional and trained.

CONS: Privacy and result confidentiality are concerns when it comes to free and public testing. Though trained, innocent conversations could lead to information leakage both consciously and unconsciously. There are cases wherein a Volunteer saw a recently positive patient in the mall and told his friend that “That guys just tested positive yesterday.”

III. HIV testing kits

HIV Testing in The Philippines Home Kit

Advanced home test kits like Fujibio HIV kit has 99.9% accuracy similar to that of Hospital based testing.

Testing kits are widely used as the main method in HIV detection in some hospitals and hygiene clinic. All free testing done by volunteer groups uses HIV test kits. HIV testing hubs also uses HIV kits. Medical missions and workplace testing will usually use HIV testing kits. They are easy to use with result at 99.9% accuracy seen in mere 10 minutes. The common brands in The Philippines are Fujibio and SD Bio. Fujibio is Japanese made while SD Bio is Korean made. Both should give an accurate result with 99.9% certainty similar to that of hospital based testing. Only Fujibio HIV test kits are the only one you can buy online.

PROS: Very easy to use and results are very accurate. I would personally recommend testing using test kits first as to give you an accurate idea of your status before going to the hospital. That way, you will know that you will test negative or positive in advance privately. It is also very convenient and you are assure that only you will know the result. Fujibio hiv test kits being sold online also offers free counseling.

CONS: Since the person that bought the kit will usually test himself or herself, Anxiety could lead to testing delay. Some people will contemplate for weeks before using the test kits and then eventually forgets that he bought one.

I TESTED POSITIVE. WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT?

If you used any of my recommendations above in getting tested and you tested positive, DO NOT DESPAIR. HIV is a very controllable disease and achievement of undetectable viral load is the treatment goal. Living a normal life is very possible with HIV as long as treatment is started and adherence to the treatment regimen is established. We have 2 options in getting treated.

Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM)

RITM is the premiere and the leading facility in The Philippines when it comes to antiretroviral drug distribution as well as treatment for HIV patients. This should be your first choice in obtaining confirmatory results and further treatment if the initial testing result was positive. RITM is more specialized than San Lazaro and could deal with serious HIV related complications such as Mycobacterium Bovis infection as well as cryptococcal infection of the brain.

For commuters:

  1. Take a bus or van going to Alabang.
  2. Look for the Muntinlupa Fire Station.
  3. Ride a UV express/van or a multicab with a Filinvest Ikot route in front of the Orange Building and Festival Mall just besides the fire station.
  4. Tell the driver to drop you off at RITM.

Total estimated fare cost: 60 -120 Pesos.
For private vehicles:

  1. Proceed to SLEX.
  2. Exit at Filinvest.
  3. Turn left after the toll gate.
  4. RITM is just at the right side.

Process:

  1. Ensure that you arrive before 7:00 A.M for baseline testing. You will not be entertained if you arrive late.
  2. Once inside, simply proceed to the ARG clinic.
  3. Register.
  4. Proceed to the cashier and pay 150 pesos for the orange patient sheet.
  5. Proceed to ARG and await for your name to be called.
  6. CD4 testing for positive patients are available after 1:00 P.M except during Wednesdays and weekends.
  7. Distribution of antiretroviral drugs are given monthly. Maximum supply for 1 month is dispensed at the given schedule.
  8. Drugs should be free and is subsidized by Philhealth.

The Thai Red Cross Research Center

If you have the budget of about 25,000 pesos every 6 months, a possible alternative is getting tested and treated in Thailand. The Thai Red Cross Aids Research Center is one of the most advanced HIV treatment facility in the world eclipsing RITM. They use the most advanced drugs that you need to only take once a day as compared to a cocktail of 2-3 medications that the Philippines still uses. Blood works such as CD4 testing is around 500 pesos and results are ready in 3 days. The medications used in TRCARC are the best medications available and is very cheap, it will only cost you about 10,000 pesos for your 6 months supply. This same medication costs about 80,000 per 1 month supply in the United States. It is cheaper in Thailand because it is subsidized by the Thai Government. You can only purchase 6 month supply of the drug as they will require you to come back every 6 months for monitoring your health status. This advanced medication is only taken once a day and has very little side effects. They look like Centrum tablets.

  3. keithng says:

    possible naman talaga na mag positive ka using fujibio or kahit anong magandang kit basta blood eh, kasi ang HIV na dedetect agad sa blood as early as 3 to 4 weeks, that time kasi nag proproduce na ng antibody ang tao.

    at 6 weeks, 90% na ng tao may antibody na ma dedetect ng kit

    at 3 months, 99.9% na ng tao ang may antibody

    that is why its useless to wait for 6 months to 1 year. 4 weeks lang pwede na pero make sure mag retest ulet ng 3 months just to be sure.

  4. Jolo says:

    pwede po ba makakuha ng hiv pag nagpa BJ?

  21. Say Sorry says:

    Kaya pala hanggang 10 years yung HIV na yan kasi meron pa lang std sa katawan ng tao na hindi nagamot na dapat naman ay magagamot lang ng antibiotics na tama, mas maganda mgpatest kayo sa lahat ng klase ng STD, mahirap na yung hindi mo ipinatest yung pala yung meron ka.

    • Klang says:

      Alam ko pag may STD ka, mas madali ka lang ma iinfect ng taong may HIV at kung may other STD ka at HIV at the same time, mas tataas viral load mo. Parang di naman nagiging HIV automatically in span of years pag meron kang other STD

      • Say Sorry says:

        Tama.. kaya nga within 10 years, ibig sabihin if more than 10 years na negative ka ng HIV, talagang HIV FREE kna. Pero my doctor na nmn na conclusive na after 6 months of negative result, is negative na talaga. Meron din doctor ngsabi na 10 years tlaga you need to test every year If my doubt ka pa. Kasi kung wla nmn eh my peace of mind kna mg move on, no need to test anymore.

  22. Say Sorry says:

    Guys Alert sa mga BOBONG DOCTOR!! kung meron po kayong nfeel na parang my std kayo, d lang po yun hiv, pag my symptoms kayo like white tongue or strawberry tongue at rashes, tapos negative kayo sa ilang test ng HIV, mgpatest po kayo ng CHLAMYDIA urine test, maraming bobong doctor ang hindi alam na meron palang urine chlamydia test, until more than 1 year ka nang negative sa HIV pero parang my symptoms pa rin, I suggest dont take unecessary anti-biotics or else mgkakaresistance kayo at d kayo magagamot, magiging superBug yung virus HIV na rin yung, iban yung HiV sa Aids guys ha.

    • Klang says:

      Ofcourse we know that HIV is different from AIDS and Chlamydia is also different. Pinagsasabe mo? That once youre positive with Chlamydia, youre also positive with HIV? LOL So whats the point of getting tested for HIV if theyre not giving us accurate results? Are you saying na yung mga HIV negative dito are actually HIV positive unless they get tested for Chlamydia?? And congrats kasi mas matalino ka sa mga “bobong doctor”

      Sana rin alam mo na maraming uri ng STDs na ibang iba sa HIV at hindi nagiging HIV over time

      • Say Sorry says:

Be wise ka mag pa test. Indi naman porket my chlamydia ka my hiv kana, to make sure lng. Pa test nang hiv rather na hindi.

    • Imme says:

  29. George says:

    Para sa ibang magtanong.Experience ko PCR ang pinaka the best hindi nag False reactive.Purely HIV lng talaga ang dinedetect nito.yang lng dahil DNA kasi ito.kahit least than a week msdetect na.d na maghinaty ng 3 minth window period.kaso may kamahalan.

  30. George says:

    Nagka false reactive kasi ako.Tama nga c.loyd sabi niya 100% ka broth negative.Loyd naala mo yong nagtanong ka sa akin sa mga story ko.page 121. Yong sabi mi na nagative ako.tama ka broth.

  31. George says:

    Share ko lng.Mas mainam para sa lahat na Mag patest kayo thru PCR.ito yong pinaka masmataas pa sa western blot.Samahan niyo na sa CD4 count.Ang nabayad ko sa HP lahat 5,500. Dahil ito kahit 2 days madetect na agad ang HIV.

  32. George says:

    Pag maynakita na virus yan na mismo.D katulad sa mga elisa nayan na pati ibang virus msdetect niya.kaya nagksroon ng False reactive.Pero ang PCR mismong HIV lng ang dinitect niya.kaya mscinclude talaga na kahit ilangbulit ka magpa confirma uon na ang result.Yan kasi ang ipinatest ng doctor ko.Nag ka False reactive kasi ako.Pero na confirm na Negative ako.

Dahil ito kahit 2 days madetect na agad ang HIV.dahil DNA process ito.ito yong ginagamit sa mga magdonate ng dugo pagkaalam ko.5 days lng maghintay.

    Nagpareply ka sa akin sa page 121. Jast feb 19 ata yon. Ako yong rare case. Nagreactive ako last Jan 19,2019 sa medical screening for pre-emoyment. mula 1997 to 2019 Jan 19,2019 saka lng ako nagka reactive.yearly ako nagpatest screening all non reactive.D ako gumagamit ng babae na hindi naka condom maliban sa asawa ko.Pero nagreactive ako reading 5.5. Maingat ako sa xhexks buhat ng ako ay nagka chlaydia sa mga checks ko noong binata pa.lahat na yon na babae ay malinis.nagka chlamydia ako sa dahilan na halo halo ang bacteria.puro.walang HIV cla.Ngayon nagpatest ako dalawa kami ng misis ko sa fujibio parihas kami non reactive. Para may idea ako na talagang hiv positive ako habang naghintay sa San Lazaro confirmatory. Lumabas sa confirmatory na kahit isang bond ni walang isa.Pero nilagay nila INDETERMINATE. Recommendation for retest ulit sa Western blot or PCR. Para once and for all. Magpakuha sana ako ng PCR sa San Lazaro.Kaso nangyari na naubusan cla.So pumunta ako sa HP nagpakuha sinabay ko na pakuha ng CD4. PCR ito yong test na kahit 2 araw madetect agad ang HIV virus vial laod sa madaling sabi medyo mahal lng talaga cya.Ang result No measurable HIV makita at ang viral load.At ang CD4 ko ay 740. Bago ako pumunta doon sa HP nagpakuha muna ako ulit sa Manila tapat ng SAN Lazaro sa Manila social Hygien bato? Result non reactive.

    Hello guys. I have a concern. I had a contact 2 days ago. Nagdry humping ang guy and dumating yung time na he will bust na, and nailabas nya sa butthole ko. No penetration happened. Would that be a risk of HIV exposure? Thank you sa sasagot. Been bothered for days now.

      Yes, stop worrying, it would have been detected as early as 3 months but since your last exposure was more than a year ago you can breathe now
