Danvic Rosadiño finished his Bachelor of Science in Biology degree at the College of Science of the University of Santo Tomas, in Manila, Philippines in 2010. He is currently taking a postgraduate Diploma in International Health at the Faculty of Management and Development Studies of the University of the Philippines – Open University.
His work for the HIV advocacy started in 2014 when he volunteered for LoveYourself Inc., a community-based organization based in metropolitan Manila. While the organization’s main thrust is to promote self-worth leading to self-care among the men who have sex with men (MSM) and the youth, the organization is mostly known to provide HIV-related services (such as but not limited to awareness, testing and counseling, prevention initiatives, treatment, care and support) to the community.
He wears many hats for LoveYourself, specifically for innovations in HIV prevention initiatives: He is the program manager of Project PrEPPY (PrEP Pilipinas), a multi-sectoral program that spearheaded the introduction of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in the Philippines. He also leads the introduction of HIV self-testing in the Philippines via the SelfCare program. Juggling his passion for learning and being an HIV advocate, he also leads the learning and development team of LoveYourself as the Training and Advocacy Officer. He is also an HIV counselor, life coach, and client data protection officer.
Formerly, he is a Surveillance Assistant at the National HIV and STI Surveillance and Strategic Information Unit of the Epidemiology Bureau, Department of Health – Philippines. He also conducted several researches on HIV prevalence and incidence among MSM in various clinics in Manila, Philippines, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
