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 and Japan FDA approved while SD Bio is Korean made and Korean FDA approved. 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.Fujibio FDA Japan Approval CertificateFujibio’s Japan FDA Registration. Click photo to enlarge.

PROS: Very easy to use and results are very accurate. FDA Japan Approved. Do note that here in The Philippines, FDA does not approve any home test kits to encourage hospital only testing. 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.


A positive HIV test using an HIV Home Test Kit

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.

    Hello ask lang poh. Nagpa test ako ng serology for HIV testing. Then ang result is mataas ang antibodies q for HIV. Does this mean my HIV poh ako. Im so depressed poh right now

  2. John Paul says:

    Good evening.

    Question lang. May risk ba ng transmission pag nagpa-handjob ka? Hand job lang naman. Salamat po sa sasagot.

  3. John Paul says:

    Good afternoon sir

    Question lang. May risk ba ng transmission pag nagpa handjob ka? Handjob lang ang nangyari. Walang vaginal or oral.Nagpatest naman na ko sa love yourself at non-reactive naman sya

    Maraming salamat po.

    • Harot says:

      Kung nagpatest ka sa loveyourself dapat nakatanggap ka din ng orientation about HIV, safe sex practices and modes of transmission. or hindi ka nakikinig?

      Ang sagot ay hindi if there are no lesions sa kamay at etits.

  4. John says:

    Hi. Is the result still accurate even if I suspected that I have been exposed 2 yrs ago? But I am sexually active. My last was Feb 8. Is the negative result accurate? Hope I will have a response 🙁

    • Enigma says:

      Hi John,

      This depends on which type of testing you will be doing. An antigen/antibody test performed by a laboratory on blood from a vein can usually detect HIV infection 18 to 45 days after an exposure. Antigen/ antibody tests done with blood from a finger prick can take longer to detect HIV (18 to 90 days after an exposure).

      Reference: https://www.cdc.gov/hiv/basics/testing.html

    • Enigma says:

      Hello John,

      The result will stay the same not until you have another exposure. It’s better to get yourself tested again. An antigen/antibody test performed by a laboratory on blood from a vein can usually detect HIV infection 18 to 45 days after an exposure. Antigen/ antibody tests done with blood from a finger prick can take longer to detect HIV (18 to 90 days after an exposure). No matter what happens, God will always be on your side! God bless!

    fujibio po… nag negative po ako doon sa isang kit na binili ko sa lazada pero dito sa dalawang fujibio +, feeling ko nagka exposure ako last october-nov

    saan po ako maniwala? dalawang kit po ito na nag positive using fujibio tapos isang kit po yung isa po negative using a generic brand called HIV/AIDS home test by yourmedica sa lazada.

    ito po yung sa fujibio. sabay po ito nilagyan ko ng blood at buffer:

    • Tony says:

      Sa fujibio po kayo maniwala.it is very accurate po.Sorry to hear but you are positive po…Pa confirm po kayo para magamot kayo kaagad..

    • Enigma says:

    • Enigma says:

      Hello xtina,

      Mas mainam kung magpa confirmatory test ka sa mga hospitals; RITM, San Lazaro Hospital, St. Lukes Medical Center both in Quezon City and Global, Makati Medical Center and Medical City in Ortigas. Kung ano man ang kalabasan, mas mainam na maagapan mo sya sa early stages pa lang. Di na ganun ka deadly ang HIV once maagapan, mas mataas pa rin ang mortality rate ng Cancer. Pray lang, nothing beats the power we get from prayers. God bless!

    Medyo mahaba pero sana it can put positive vibes and outlook sa inyong lahat.
    I just really wanted to share about my story and i hope na makainspire ako sa inyo kahit konti. 🙂

    I posted here last december because im really paranoid if im positive.
    I cant sleep,i suffer weight lost in just 1week everyone notice that sudden weight lost of mine.
    Umuwi ako ng pinas kasi hindi ko alam at natatakot ako kasi nandito ako sa korea and theres no way na maka avail ka basta ng hiv tester ng walang nakakaalam at pag nagpositive ako,dure na uuwi ako sa pinas kahit d tapos contract ko.i decided na umuwi december for vacation and gather infos about hiv. Ang possible exposure ko ay noong nov 26 2019 sa korean prosti dito sa S.Korea.
    Pag uwi ko bumili ako ng fujibio 2kits.
    Lahat na ng symptoms ata naranasan ko except rashes and swollen lymphnodes and masama pa ay nagkaroon ako ng STI kaya pinabalik balik ako sa urology clinic dito.
    Nagpapaalam ako sa company ko na may importante akong lakad pero d nila alam na sa urology ako napunta. 2mos kong dinala yung ureaplasma urealyticum ang hirap kasi pabalik balik kahit nagamot kaya talagang nilalagay ko na at tinatanggap sa sarili ko na postive na ako plus kakasearch ko sa internet na almost 80% ng may U.Urealyticum is HIV positive. Hinanda ko na lahat nung vacation ko. Naghanap na ako ng magging negosyo ko pag uwi kasi i know na hindi ka tatanggapin sa trabaho once positive ka or maybe unless undetectable ka msy chance.Naisip ko din na wag na kaya akong bumalik ng S.Korea kasi natatakot ako anong isipin sakjn ng mga katrabaho ko.baka dko makayanan ihandle situation kapag sinabi kong HIV pos. ako.
    Then JAN 5 bumalik na ako dito. One month na lang halos msgttest na ako kasi feb 16 window period ko.
    Napagod nako kakaisip ,sobrang paranoid hanggang sa sabi ko nanlang sa sarili ko ,wala namang magagawa kung pos. Na talaga ako.Kaya i tried na ienjoy ang iniisip ko na natitirang isang buwan ko dito sa korea kasi nga i already accept na pos.na ako. Kasi once na d ko pinag aralan i accept yun ng mas maagabaka dko mahandle ang emotions ko at ano magawa ko sa sarili ko. Pero yun nga i tried to enjoy my stay here in korea salamat sa kaibigan at girlfriend ko na napapagsasabihan ko and promised to stay with me no matter what and also sa parents ko na dko sinabi na ganito situation ko ang sabi ko lang ay baka may sakit ako na walang gamot.but they said na anoman yan nandito lang kami. Sabi ng nanay ko, ako mag aalaga sayo anoman yang sakit na yan and it keeps me going. Salamat.
    Then hanggang sa dumating na nga yung feb 15 and 16.
    I first tested feb 15 it turns negative. Dko makuha dugo sa daliri ko sa sobrang panginginig ko na d nako halos makagalaw.
    Then yesterday feb 16 i get tested ulit using fujibio then im happy that its still negative.
    Its really a big chance,another life and big lesson for me.
    I know kung gaano nakakatakot ang magpatest i experienced it … I almost died thinking…
    Pero the only way para malaman mo kung anong status mo is to get tested.
    Kung mahal mo ang sarili mo do it. Get tested and ano man ang result stay positive,if negative be more careful always use condom lalo na kung paiba iba ka ng partner mahirap basta magtiwala keep that in mind. Wenall know na masarap pero keep in mind na mas mahalaga ang health natin…
    Have a positive outlook in life Fighting!!!!

    PS: Sa sobrang kakasearch ko sa online. Para sa mga positive may nakita akong positive news search nyo University of Nebraska Med. Center cure on hiv sa youtube they already removed HIV completely in a humanized mouse and ngaun they keep developing it and they said na sooner once na success lahat ng trials nila sa primates the will sooner test it on humans ,i do pray na sana mas mapabilis at maging okay at stable ang process.

    Hello po. May tanong po ako sana sagutin nyo. Nakaka infect po ba yung kakasimula pa lang ng penetration, mabagal lang ang galaw tapos biglang napunit yung condom? Napunit ata dahil sa gel. Bago naman yung condom. Buti nakita kaagad para palitan.

  10. Flin says:

    Is it possible na magkaroon ng HIV with one partner but from time to time unprotected sex ang laging ginagawa?

    • Harot says:

      It’s a question of monogamy. If two are both negative and are sexually faithful to one another, it’s not possible to contract HIV through sex.

    Are you seeking effective advertising that actually gets good results? I apologize for sending you this message on your contact form but actually that was kinda the point. We can send your promotional message to sites through their contact forms just like you’re reading this note right now. You can target by keyword or just do bulk blasts to sites in the country of your choice.

  13. Hunter says:

    So I got my test this evening through Fujibio, but takes me long time to get enough blood. Afterwards, when I get enough blood in the cassette, I put the buffer or the liquid. But my concern was that after putting to the blood 1 to 3 minutes I got the result. And it was negative. I’m not really confident about this result.

  14. Sino po pwede makausap o malapitan gusto ko po kase mag patest natatakot po kase ako I’m 20 year old??

      • mike says:

        salama sa reply! Ako rin. natakot ako bigla kasi may bagong warning ang FDA about biotin supplement intake and its interference to lab test kasali ang hiv test. I guess di kasali ang whey protein nito.

  16. Clair says:

    Para sa tanong tanong dyan tungkol sa result nila after a few hours, nakalagay naman don na disregard any result after 20 mins eh. Basa basa din para di mag-overthink.

  17. Lalala says:

    Hello po ask ko lang po. Gumamit po ako ng condom nilabasan sya sa condom after nia labasan hindi nia hinugot ginamit paden nia at nilabasan sya ng pangalawang beses safe po ba yun? Safe po kaya yun?

    • Harot says:

      Very unsafe. Condom has a short life span. During prolonged penetration, condom should be replaced with a new one after 10 or 15 minutes. One of the reasons why a packet comes in 3 condoms. Reusing condom is not only unsafe but very gross.

    • Joseph Almazan says:

      Better na magpa test pa rin.

  18. Kinakabahan says:

    After sex po, ilang weeks po ba. Bago lalabas ang mga symptoms ng hiv? Simula kasi nung nag 1month na last sex ko. May mga symptoms na po akong nararamdaman. Please reply po. Kinakabahan napo ako.

    • AAA says:

      Do not rely sa mga symptoms po. Magiging paranoid ka lng. Magpa test na po kayo 3 months after ng last sexual intercourse mo.
      Been there, na stress lng ako kakaisip. Got tested yesterday and Thank God, negative naman ☺

    • Joseph Almazan says:

      Better magpa test if may symptoms or wala. Basta sa tingin mo may unprotected sex ka. Or kahit nga chumupa or nagpachupa ka. Magpa test pa rin. Ang pinaka safe gma di mo kailangan magpa test pag nagjakol ka. Jakol is the safest sex.

    Hi, gumamit akong fujibio after 7weeks of possible exposure and nagnegative sya. Is it a slight sign of relief na po ba? I know kelangan ko pa din magtest uli after 3 months. Gusto ko lang po malaman kung sapat na yung window or kelangan talaga 12 weeks after exposure? Salamat sa inyo!

      According to loveyourself staff, pwedeng 2 mos. pero need pa rin mag test ulit. Just to make sure, make it 3mos after last sexual intercourse ?

      • taetae123 says:

        pero reliable naman po ba yung fujibio? kasi ang lalayo ng clinic samin e, tapos nakakatakot din lumabas dahil sa Corona. 🙂

    you need an hiv positive person’s bodily fluid to get in ur bloodstream to get hiv you cant get on if your partner is negative and you cant give yourself the virus

    Hello po sa lahat. Currently i am on my 2nd week after exposure of unprotected sex. Ako po top tapos yung bot ko naman may engagement na to several people. I think mga less than 15. 3 of which unprotected kasali na ako dun. Abala din ako kasi baka na infect ako. Kaya ayun after 1 week from exposure nagpa laboratory test ako agad. Syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and hiv. All came out non-reactive but still have to undergo another lab test after a month from exposure. Tanong ko lang sa mga experts given na high contagious na yung nakatalik ko immediately ba lalabas na as reactive/positive yung hiv test ko after a week from exposure? And how many percentage po yung accuracy for that test at 1 week after exposure? Thank you po in advance

    • Harot says:

      high risk ka tsk tsk tsk. am not an expert but this website is.

      No HIV test can detect HIV immediately after infection. If you think you’ve been exposed to HIV in the last 72 hours, talk to your health care provider about post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), right away.

      The time between when a person may have been exposed to HIV and when a test can tell for sure whether they have the virus is called the window period. The window period varies from person to person and depends on the type of test used to detect HIV. Ask your health care provider or test counselor about the window period for the test you’re taking.

      A nucleic acid test (NAT) can usually tell you if you have HIV infection 10 to 33 days after an exposure.

      An antigen/antibody test performed by a laboratory on blood from a vein can usually detect HIV infection 18 to 45 days after an exposure. Antigen/ antibody tests done with blood from a finger prick can take longer to detect HIV (18 to 90 days after an exposure).

      Antibody tests can take 23 to 90 days to detect HIV infection after an exposure. Most rapid tests and self-tests are antibody tests. In general, antibody tests that use blood from a vein can detect HIV sooner after infection than tests done with blood from a finger prick or with oral fluid.

      If you get an HIV test after a potential HIV exposure and the result is negative, get tested again after the window period. Remember, you can only be sure you are HIV-negative if:

      – Your most recent test is after the window period.
      – You haven’t had a potential HIV exposure during the window period. If you do have a potential exposure, then you will need to be retested.

    • Lloyd says:

      The latest is 6 weeks and conclusive at 12 weeks..then repeat at 6 months for a peace of mind.
      Your act is very risky,,no doubt about it kaya kapag nagnegative ka be extra careful next time.

  29. PleaseSanaNegativeAko says:

      Sir Lloyd,

      Is fujibio kit realiable? I did my test 3 times after 8 months exposure, then after 15 months and the last was 16 months. All result was negative. No other exposure na ako. Pwde na ba ako makampante?

      Thanks for reply Sir.

      • Enigma says:

        Hi Jane,

        Yes. It has 99.9% accuracy, given the fact that you have done it 3x. Stay safe na ha, refrain from doing unprotected sex no matter what. God bless!

        Regards,
        Enigma
