July to August 2017, HIV AIDS REGISTRY OF THE PHILIPPINES

11.27.2017

There was a delay in the national report for the HIV / AIDS registry, so here you go

Some “notable noted” points were:

  • 1962 new cases for July to August, 2017. No, that’s not my birth year =)
  • That brings us to 7,363 year-to-date total number of cases
  • 250/1962 were reported as AIDS cases, either diagnosed with OI or CD4 lower than 200 ( and maybe both)
  • 89 females /1962 new cases
  • 512 (28.3%) of the 1810 males reported having sex with both males and females
  • 118 reported deaths for the two months mentioned
  • 610 cases from our young key population (15 to 24).  Majority came from the 25 to 34 range (1,009 cases)
  • 18 pregnant women were reported to have been confirmed with HIV
  • 27% came from the National Capital Region, followed by Region 4A (18%), 2nd runner is Miss Jamaica, I mean, Region 3 with 7% of the 1962 cases
  • August actually had 1104 of the 1962 cases.  This is again, a new record high for the Philippines
  • A total of 98 adolescent cases (10-19 yo) were reported of the 1962 new cases. 96 of 98 cases were sexually transmitted.
  • There were 7 children aged 10 years and below, all mother-to-child or vertical transmission.
  • 8% or 154 cases were reported as overseas foreign workers (OFWs)
