70) 16-year-old Pinoy gets HIV (ABS-CBNnews.com)

MANILA - The Department of Health is sounding the alarm over the increasing number of Filipinos diagnosed with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), saying at least one HIV patient was as young as 16 years old.

Speaking to radio dzMM, DOH Assistant Secretary Dr. Eric Tayag said the Philippine HIV and AIDS Registry recorded 415 new HIV cases in May this year. He said this is the highest monthly number of new HIV cases since the registry was set up in 1984.

Tayag said the youngest HIV patient in the new recorded cases is 16 years old. He refused to give more information on the patient but noted that 95% of the new HIV cases are men.

He also noted that many of the new HIV cases are between the ages 20-29.

The health official said the DOH is working towards stopping the rise in HIV cases by reminding Filipinos to practice abstinence, to remain faithful to their partners or to wear a condom.

He, however, noted: "Ang tingin namin dito ay magpapatuloy yung ganuong trend. It's going to get worse before it gets better."

"Ang pagiging mapusok mahirap pong pigilan yan e," he added.

He said the DOH will soon announce how Filipinos can get tested for HIV anonymously. He said that before they can get testing, counselors will talk to the patients.

  7. Ambata pa nya. Naalala ako nung naparanoid ako ng ilang buwan dahil inakala kong meron na ko, halos mabaliw-baliw ako sobra. Nahiya pa ko sa sarili ko dahil yung sincerest approach ko sa Diyos dun ko lang ata nagawa kung di pa nangyari sakin yun. Andaming bagay sa paligid ang natetake for granted, tapos nung dumating ang panahong paranoid at halos baliw na ako para bang kahit isang iglap pwede nang gumuho mundo ko dun ako bigla nanghinayang. SIguro leksyon yun para sakin at sobrang thankful ako dahil nalaman ko hiv-free ako.

    Ang hirap pa naman kalabanin ang tukso pero guys its better be safe, sobrang hirap talaga at ifocus na lang sarili natin sa makakapagpabuti satin at sa pamilya natin, enjoy ang meron tayo, mahalin ang Diyos at pamilya natin dahil maiksi lang ang buhay. Di man trahedya ng HIV ang pumasok sa buhay natin, mas maganda yung kahit maraming pagsubok na darating sa buhay natin, kahit paano magaan ang kalooban natin.

Two years after our marriage my life was torn apart when our family doctor diagnosed me of genital herpes virus I know it was from my ex whom I have dated years back. I became very worried because I don't know what will be my husband judgment when he finds out. I searched everywhere both on internet for cure but no success until my husband started suspecting but still he wasn't sure. I don't want to loose my marriage I prayed everyday with hope that there is a cure. I searched without rest blogs, websites, everything google says about herpes and cure and peoples comments one evening after work I was surfing the internet on herpes cure I saw a friend who was giving testimony on how DR. UTU have helped cured her of her herpes virus I immediately contacted her to confirm if her testimony was real. She told me it was. She also told me about African Herbs and Herbalist and Dr Utu. She then gave me Dr. Utu contact, which I contacted him immediately. He told me about his Herbal Medicines and how he has helped many people get healthy with fruits and vegetables and also cured many with his Roots and traditional Herbs, I was interested. He prepared and sent me Herbal medicine for both HERPES & HIV through DHL I used this medicines for both HERPES and HIV carefully as was prescribed by him for 1week and 4days without my husband notice. I waited for a month then went for medical test in a different hospital and I was both herpes and HIV negative I felt reborn. I showed my husband my result and told him everything including DR UTU. He contacted DR UTU who also sent him HIV Herbal Medicine. He used this Medicines for just 8days, then we both went to our family doctor who confirmed my husband HIV negative and me still negative. Our family doctor, Dr Paul is a good Christian and often advice his patients to use natural remedy. Based on confidential he do introduce some of his patients to DR UTU for Herbal cure.
