Both HIV treatment and HIV diagnosis guidelines are very important when it comes to halting the spread of HIV. But how exactly does treatment and diagnosis work, and what other things should persons with HIV be aware of?
HIV Diagnosis Guidelines
HIV, or the human immunodeficiency virus, was first discovered in 1983. Since then, medical science has made leaps in terms of diagnosis and treatment of HIV.
Despite this, the World Health Organization estimates that only half of people with HIV are aware of their condition.
Not only is it important for countries to have proper facilities, but having HIV testing and HIV diagnosis guidelines are also important. These can help doctors take better care of their patients, and patients can receive the care and support that they need.
How Can a Person Get Tested?
People who want to get tested for HIV in the Philippines can do so in any Department of Health designated HIV testing center. The Department of Health has accredited these facilities to follow the right HIV treatment and HIV diagnosis guidelines.
These are usually found in larger hospitals, as well as a number of diagnostic clinics in most cities.
