This study determined the significant psychological and structural factors affecting the utilization of HIV services among patient’s ages 20-49 years old in Seamen’s Hospital Manila. Factors were determined using a validated selfadministered questionnaire. Statistical analyses were performed using STATA Statistical Software, Version 13, and College Station, TX: StataCorp LP. A p value ≤0.05 was considered statistically significant. Several factors were identified as significantly affecting their decision to seek for HIV care: Among the younger population (20-24 years old): “do not know where to go for an HIV test”, “afraid of my privacy/anonymity” and “not sexually active”. Among the older population (35-49 years old): “long queue in the health facility”. Among the males, the following factors were noted: “have been tested in another facility” and “health facility opening hours”.
