This is to serve as a guide to my fellow Pinoys that is wondering what are the prices of HEPB drugs and tests. Also, for non Filipino CHB carriers, if treatment in your country is expensive, you may want to fly to our country instead and get the tests/ drugs here.

Hope this post helps :)

the exchange rate is approx. USD 1  = PHP 43.81, as posted above.
so for example, Php 4400 = USD 100.43 (4400 / 43.81)

Thank you PinoyHBVDNA for posting the above info. I didn't know we have hbsag2 quant here.
