From just 16 per month in 2001-2005, to 28 in 2006-2007, to 44 last year... reported HIV cases in the Philippines now wallops at 60 cases per month in 2009. It recorded 66 new cases for the month of April 2009, the highest ever recorded number in a month.
Forget the terms "low and slow" and "hidden and growing" to describe the HIV epidemic in the Philippines. Clearly, HIV is an exploding epidemic in the country.
