By 2011, HIV prevalence rose to 4-6% among males who have sex with males (MSM) in the cities of Cebu, Quezon and Manila; 53% among people who inject drugs (PWID) and 5% among female sex workers (FSW) in Cebu City.

As part of the review, the Department of Health (DOH), with support from WHO, will support another team of consultants (but part of the AMTP5 midterm review team) to assess the Health Sector HIV response including key components of the National AIDS/STI Prevention and Control Program (NASPCP).
