We want to grab this opportunity to share some important information and reminder to all of you. We have raising HIV cases in the region especially in Baguio City. Please put in mind that HIV as of the moment doesn't have any cure. Once you got infected, forever ka ng infected.


1. Hindi lang po mga MSM or Males having sex with Males ang affected ng HIV. May mga kaso po tayo sa region na babae, bata-new born at mga lalaking sa babae lang may sexual encounter. I always emphasize this: It's not who you are that puts you at risk, its what you do.

2. Wag po matakot at mahiyang mag pa test. Libre po ang HIV test sa Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center, Baguio Health Services Office at sa DOH CAR Regional Office.

3. Laging isipin ang kaligtasan bago ang panandaliang kaligayahan. Kung ikaw ay may mahigit sa isang sexual partner gumamit ng condom.

4. We have available treatment for HIV and it is for free kaya the earliest time na malaman mo na infected ka, the better.

5. Please stop stigma and avoid discrimination. Walang taong gustong magkasakit. Instead of putting those who are infected down, let's extend help, love, compassion and understanding.

Or pwedeng tandaan ito:

A- abstinence
B-be mutually faithful
C-correct and consistent use of condom
D- do not use drugs, share syringe
E- educate yourself, early detection, early treatment.

Ps: wag po sana nating gamitin ito para magbigay ng negative comments sa mga lugar na may mas mataas na kaso. This is for awareness and information po. Ty

Get tested. Know your status.

University of the Cordilleras brief history

Baguio Colleges was founded on June 19, 1946 by Atty. Benjamin R. Salvosa and his wife Evangelina D. Salvosa.

Baguio Colleges (1946 - 1967)
Baguio Colleges Foundation (1967 - 2003)

BC was the first higher learning institution in this highland city after World War II. This milestone inspired the creation of Baguio City as the education center of the north.

The college started with 156 students in teacher training and liberal arts at rented spaces in the Arevalo and the Antipolo buildings along Session Road.

The founders converted the college into a foundation as Baguio Colleges Foundation in 1967, providing access to more students in the region and the whole country.

In 2003, the school became the University of the Cordilleras (UC), extending its services in three core areas - to teach, to research, and to give back.

The university has grown to a complex of 10 colleges, collectively offering over 40 certificate, tertiary, graduate, and post-graduate programs, including a laboratory school for pre-school, grade school and high school, catering to around 2 students from the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), and other regions of the country and overseas.

The Kalinga People of the Cordilleras, Ethnic Group in Philippines

Due to the mountainous terrain and warrior-culture of the people, the Kalinga were able to preserve their culture despite centuries of occupation in the lowlands by the Spaniards, Americans, and the Japanese.

The Kalinga people are highlanders and the most extensive rice farmers of the Cordillera peoples, having been blessed with some of the most suitable land for both wet and dry rice farming. Like the Ifugao, the Kalinga are prolific terrace builders. The Kalinga are also skilled craftsmen, well-versed in basketry, loom weaving, metalsmithing, and pottery, the last centred in the lower Chico River Valley.

On February 22, 2019, the Department of Tourism announced the bid of Digdiga Ni Tupayya, a Kalinga courtship dance, to be included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.
