Update as of 01.14.2018
Ms. Tess Pagcalinawan is no longer at the Makati City Health Office, she has retired already.
Makati has ARV already. Makati residents (registered voters)can access all services for free.
The clinic is at the 7th floor of the New Building-A (Makati City Hall). Our contact persons there are Tita Tess or Rhea who can be contacted at tel# 870-1622/870-1615.
FREE HIV tests are conducted onsite. There are other tests done in the same site like Syphilis (SY) and Gonorrhea tests. Tita Tess can also assist clients for SY treatment. For Gonorrhea treatment, it’s free for the “Yellow card” holders. This card is available for Makati residents only.
Turbeculosis (TB) is referred to the TB-DOTS clinic for testing and treatment.
Tita Tess normally refers clients for treatment to clinics depending on where the client prefers, choices are laid out for the client to select from, according to his/her preference.
BEFORE a client is referred for treatment, the Makati social hygiene would have conducted some of the baseline tests already like Complete Blood Count (CBC), X-ray, Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR). Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) is sometimes conducted (reagent stocks dependent).
The team, led by Dr. Bernard Sese (City health office Officer-in-Charge), is pushing for a sundown clinic and satellite HIV treatment clinic.
