WALL STREET JOURNAL - Oct 9 - The estimated number of new infections in this Southeast Asian nation has more than doubled from 2013 through 2018, according to the United Nations' AIDS agency. UNAIDS estimates that ~77K people are living with HIV in the Philippines compared with the 67,395 diagnosed. Health advocates think a major driver has been dating apps. Millions of young Asians have come online in recent years thanks to low-end smartphones, cheap data plans and intuitive apps that allow easy navigation despite poor literacy. The majority of documented HIV cases in the Philippines were gay and bisexual men aged between 15 and 34.
