A new support group was launched in Angeles City in Pampanga last October, 2016. They have been around for a few months now and they are an active member of the Regional AIDS Assistance Team of Region 3.
They offer HIV Counseling and referral for Testing in partnership with the rural health unit (RHU) of Angeles. They have an office located near SM Clark:
REGION’S SERVICE DELIVERY NETWORK (SDN)
I have personally accessed the region’s service delivery network and I have seen it in action. Through the region’s HIV coordinator Joseph Manlutac, we are able to refer patients for assistance coming from the region. He has shared a list of (satellite) treatment centers and If I am not mistaken, Region 3 is one of the regions with the most numbers of treatment satellite clinics. It’s SDN is also able to provide, based on my experience, financial assistance to its positive clients through the region’s DSWD (coordinator is Mr. Armont Pecina) and blood assistance through the coordinator, Mr. Daniel Mangahas.
Mr. Manlutac remains to be the point person to coordinate to if there is a need to access the service delivery network of region 3.
