HIV testing centers in the Philippines & why you should get tested


There is a famous saying "what you don't know won't hurt you", that's bull****. What you don't know, can kill you. There has been quite a number of deaths in San Lazaro Hospital whose causes were because of late diagnosis of HIV/AIDS. They weren't able to save themselves, neither the doctors.

Here are 3 reasons why you must know your status:

1.) To be able to save your own life - Early diagnosis is the key to live long if ever you have HIV. If you have HIV and you know it, you have a choice to either change your lifestyle and start doing some self-preservation action plans or just throw everything out of the window and live like a rockstar, but you will surely not die like one.

2.) To be able to protect others - If ever you have HIV, you will also have the power to stop it from spreading. "HIV stops with me", as the famous slogan says.

3.) To have peace of mind - There is bliss from a peaceful mind knowing you are not carrying a virus that destroys your immune system. There is pride in knowing that your are "clean".

So do yourself a favor, for your own good and for the benefit of your partner or future partners as well as for others that you love. Get tested.

Below is a list of all the public HIV/AIDS testing centers in the Philippines.
