Hi there.

Thank you for your email.

I advocate for HIV testing in a clinic or hospital. Usually in HIV testing centers in the country, the process is they will draw blood from you, then you will get the result of the rapid screening test on the same day or the following day. However, if positive, there is a waiting period from 2 weeks to one month. During this period, the blood test will be subjected to the Western Blot test to confirm it.

If you are from Manila, I would recommend the RITM Satellite Clinic. The HIV test result there comes out after 2 hours only, then if it turns positive, you can proceed directly to the RITM-ARG in Alabang for treatment the following day. No need to wait for the confirmatory test anymore. You may click the link of the clinic here:

I hope I was able to answer your concerns. Feel free to email me again if you have other questions.

Stay healthy,

NO PLHIV is alone with his or her struggle with HIV!"
