This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
Thank you for the reply.

RHAC is also good for the lady should anything turn up in your tests and advises on the treatment. They have several branches in PP and the provinces.
Google Maps search should show all the mentioned places.
So if they are not doing them anymore they have actually downgraded.
Can you elaborate on 3rd generation HIV tests? How can a patient identify which generation a place does? What should ppl get?
Which place would you recommend for tests and advice/treatment?
Thanks for taking the time.
Newer generations can provide more reliable results sooner (shorter window period) after exposure, so if you don't want to wait too long to rule out HIV you might want to use the newest one (current: 4th generation). Paramed definitely offers a 4th generation test, RHAC couldn't tell me which one when i asked, but they used 3rd generation (at least when I used their service). The abbreviation used on the form identifies the test used, so check the form or ask for it and Google is your friend.
i have used Paramed several times for various blood tests, in particular when I knew what I wanted to test for.
That’s why I have them on my list as well.
They are, however, a lab.
For many conditions, I would need a doctor/clinic that diagnoses and advises on treatment.
To that end my experience with RHAC (two years ago) was good, but I am definitely interested in additional, perhaps better options for both boys and girls.
