AHF Philippines works with the Department of Health (DOH) at the central level, coordinates with the the DOH regional offices and local health offices to ensure that its programs, projects and activities are aligned with that of the national response.

Along with policy advocacy and improvement, AHF works with the Philippine National AIDS Council (PNAC) to enure that partners and sites are in compliance with existing regulations and guidelines, and works collaboratively in proposing new policies that would support and improve HIV program implementation in the country.

Part of our fundamental work is to provide HIV testing in our clinics to all who seek it, free from judgment. All tests are confidential and the results are quick. Patients who are found positive are linked into care and given support. Our primary mission statement is to provide, “Cutting edge medicine and advocacy regardless of ability to pay.”
