CALL FOR APPLICATION

II.                  PROJECT NAME:

III.                GENERAL BACKGROUND
Quezon City’s Klinika Bernardo, popularly known as the KB Sundown Clinic, is a community-friendly facility located along a busy highway. It is housed in a social hygiene clinic, which stops its services for sex workers at 3pm, transforming into a facility for MSM. The clinic operates until 11pm and with this after-hours schedule is able to see a maximum number of MSM, who often work as professionals from 9 to 5. Many clients come from beyond the city.
Quezon City won the prestigious Galing Pook award for outstanding local governance in 2014 for this pioneering HIV clinic for MSM and TG.
This year, the clinic expanded its services and started operating as satellite treatment hub linked to the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM).
However, KB Sundown Clinic has been operating using only the 2010 Manual for Social Hygiene Clinics which does not include services for MSM and more recently, management of PLHIV on treatment and other related services.
