[Health] Free HIV Testing Centers In Metro Manila

The Take the Test Project has published a list of a number of safe, quick and reliable Free HIV testing centers around Metro Manila for those who want to get in the habit. The Philippines is one of the few countries in the world where HIV cases continue to rise dramatically and we should all do our part to remain in-the-know about what HIV is, what the risks are and how to seek out treatment in case of infection.

Take the Test Project


The Geeky Guide firmly supports HIV awareness programs like this and we felt it important enough to re-publish the list of centers for those looking for a place to go for quick and confidential results.

MANILA:
Manila Social Hygiene Clinic - Manila Health Department, 2nd Floor of 208 Quiricada Street, Sta. Cruz, Manila. Open Mondays to Fridays from 08:00am - 02:00pm

QUEZON CITY:
Batasan Social Hygiene Clinic - G/F Batasan Hills Super Health Center Bldg,IBP Road Batasan Hills, Quezon City. Open Mondays to Fridays from 08:00am - 02:00pm

UPDATE: June 24, 2011: Migs, the Manila Gay Guy has posted a great list of HIV testing centers nationwide, to help those outside of Metro Manila.

until ngayun po ba meron pa rin po nito.?, ok to if meron parin nito . i had conversation with a foreign friend and we talked about STD/HIV. . bec much of the people doesnt have any idea if they have STD, , bec some STD's e walang symtoms so mahirap sya malaman lalo na chlymadia. . so maganda tlaga mai push ang free test.pra na rin to sa bansa para magless na yung may mga sakit nito, dpt merong program ang DOH nito, hnd lng sa HIV dapt pati na rin sa STD.,, atleast dito my pag asa panggumaling pagnaagapan.

Social hygiene clinics provide a wide variety of testing services not just for HIV but also various STDs, so it's still a good option.

also, groups like Loveyourself continue to put up testing events especially for MSMs like one coming up this Sunday:
