Email 508: What to Do in RITM-ARG?

Posted by Pozziepinoy on 8:40 AM

Good morning!

I got my confirmatory results and I'm planning to enroll into RITM-ARG for treatment. I want ask about the procedure and how to go about it like what do I need to bring, who do I need to talk to when I get there.

Thank you and more power!


POZZIEPINOY’S RESPONSE


Hi there.

Thank your for your email.

Enrolling in RITM-ARG is easy:

1. For new clients, come only on Mondays, Tuesday, Thurs and Fridays. There is no CD4 test on Wednesdays.

2. Come around 7:30am so you will be in front of the line. You need to be early because the CD4 test is at 8:30-9:30am only.

3. Bring your confirmatory HIV test result.

4. If you have recent lab tests done (within one week), like chest X-ray, CBC, sputum/TB tests, heap tests, etc, make sure to bring them too so you won't repeat them anymore.

4.  If you have PhilHealth documents, bring them too. 

5. You will be paying for the orange card which is around P100. 

6. The rest of the process will be relayed to you.

However, if you want to assistance so everything will be easy, you can call The Project Red Ribbon (TRR) Care Manager in RITM-ARG, Gerald Santos at 0917-899-0473.

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


Stay healthy,
Pozziepinoy
