HIV infection high in Cagayan de Oro

A few months ago, Cagayan de Oro City was mentioned as one of the 6 cities in the Philippines with high HIV infection.

This is really alarming.  For a medium sized city like Cagayan de Oro, this is devastating to the gay community in general.

I encourage everyone to get tested at the City Health Office, 2nd floor Laboratory (Monday to Friday).  The test is free.

I was tested last May 2015 and I am negative.  I am due for another test this December as advised by the City Health Office.  You are supposed to get tested every 6 or 7 months.

Again an appeal to all gay men to practice safer sex and use a condom!
