hi all, i am diagnosed with hepatitis b but im still taking my chances in applying. is hepatitis b really included in the blood tests? Ive carefully read the website of CIC on health reqts as well as the DMP handbook but both says only syphilis and HIV are to be tested plus CXR and UA. Ive also emailed CIC but they wont give me a direct answer to my question.
I am from the Philippines and Ive also checked Nationwide and St.lukes's process but hep b is not included. Just wondering why some of the comments on some posts says that it is mandatory to test for hep b and some says its not.
any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
