P8 Billion Health Projects For Improvement of Health of Filipino Families

"We are encouraged by the wide-ranging reforms undertaken by the Philippine Government under President Aquino, and we hope our support will help push the already growing momentum for lasting change in the country, particularly with respect to health outcomes", Ambassador Thomas added.
It's good to know that the US-Philippines bilateral health agreement is really on its way to help improve the health of Filipino families. The agreement was strengthen by the launched of 13 projects amounting to P7.96 billion
The said projects will be implemented in 48 provinces around the country that include Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. The launching was headed by Philippine Department of Health Secretary Enrique T. Ona and U.S. Ambassador Harry K. Thomas, Jr. 

I volunteered once in a public hospital and I've seen unacceptable way of treating the patients or worse there's no free medicines to help the poor people. After so many years, the changes is now becoming beneficial for Filipino families. With the cheaper medicines and the Filipino doctors are more reliable in terms of handling their patients, I can say that our approach towards wellness is really good. 

After hearing this news from DOH Philippines, I get excited of what projects they have for Filipinos. Let's observe this for next five years and see how well they spent that large amount of money. Let's all hope for the best.

  1. This is good news to all of us. I just wish that our government will strongly implement this and not just showing another publicity. Our country's health issues are getting worst. And if this project will push through, this will definitely help a lot of people.

  2. That's good news indeed! I hope all of that huge amount of money will really go towards improving the health of the many Filipinos.

    I wonder if my province, Surigao del Sur, is part of that 48 provinces who are beneficiaries?

  7. I could relate with this because my mom also works in the health sector of the government and having experience of observing the common problems of lack of medicines and medical attention, I would say, this budget somehow will help a lot of people.

  8. This would be a great help if ever. But I just really hope that this budget will really go to the Filipino people and not to some pockets of some other (few) people. This would be a great help if ever
