Rotary District 3830 frames roadmap for better health services

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)--The Philippine government continuously gains an ally in pursuing better health services for every Filipino in the country.

This, as the non-government organization (NGO) Rotary District 3830 expressed its dedication to this shared mission.

Rotary Club of Las Piñas - District 3830 President Dr. Joseph Aron Rey Inot Manapsal revealed that his district formulated its own Roadmap for Development to have an official framework of their movement and get a clear picture of their objectives and activities. 

He stated that to realize the roadmap, they partnered with the Department of Health (DOH) to offer services that are all aligned with the Universal Healthcare Act of 2019 which is the basis of all healthcare services in the Philippines. 

“Kahit kami ay isang NGO ay sumunod kami. Nakipagpartner, coalition at nagka-MOU [Memorandum of Understanding] kami sa Department of Health,” said Manapsal. 

[Although we are an NGO, we are still following. We partnered, coalition and entered into an MOU [Memorandum of Understanding] with the Department of Health.]

With their undertaking successfully going as planned, the Rotary District 3830 conveyed its thanks to the DOH for recognizing them as authorized mobile health providers. 

Manapsal underscored that it is through this that they get to go around the GIDAs in the country and carry on their objective of providing basic medical aid to the people. 

“Nagbibigay kami ng primary healthcare services para sa ating mga mamamayan. Iyan ang services na unang naiencounter ng patients. Bibigyan namin kayo ng efficient primary healthcare services,” he said. 

[We give primary healthcare services to our constituents. These are the services first encountered by patients. We will give you efficient primary healthcare services.] (CRG/PIA-10/Lanao del Sur)
