Interview with HIV Counsellor Darwin Babon

Darwin Babon is an HIV Counsellor based in the Philippines. He recently caught up with POLHN to share some of his experiences.

Tell us something about your work and yourself.

My name is Darwin F. Babon. I was born and bred in the Philippines. I am employed by the Department of Health here at the Cordillera Administrative Regional Office as a Supervising Regional HIV Counsellor.

How did you find out about POLHN?

I was searching online courses and next thing you know I was routed to this very helpful website:!

What courses have you studied with POLHN?

I have completed the HIV-AIDS/ TB course, which has been very helpful to what I do at my workplace. I am planning to take more HIV-related courses.

What do you like best about studying with POLHN?

First and foremost, the best part about POLHN is its credibility. With the rampant fake news nowadays, it is hard to find legitimate sources of information, but knowing that this is a programme of World Health Organisation (WHO) makes me feel proud and honoured. Secondly, it is free-to-take and you receive a certificate upon completion. Finally, it is easy to navigate and very user-friendly. You can read and review your lessons in your most comfortable time.

Why did you take POLHN courses?

I believe that learning is a lifelong process. We should never stop gaining knowledge and it is important to get updates that will be helpful not only in our professional growth but also in our daily lives. Knowledge is important and it becomes precious and valuable if you are updated.

What advice do you have for others?

We have various choices and if you are looking for the best option then choose POLHN. POLHN provides reliable and the most up-to-date information relevant for your desired field.
