Message from Director IV
I am deeply honored and pleased that i will be taking charge of one of the top performing CHDs in the country today, the Center for Health Development - Northern Mindanao. As I commenced last March 1, I intend to start where the former Director Jaime Bernadas has took off in terms of strengthening our strategic policies and channeling our resources towards our goal of Kalusugan Pangkalahatan.
More Importantly, let me reiterate the key thrusts that Secretary Ona wanted us to deliver in the next few months: increased enrolment to the PhilHealth Sponsored Program especially among those in the first quintile (Q1) population to achieve universal coverage; access to quality and effective service delivery though the Health Facility Enhancement Program (HFEP); attainment of health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) such as (1) Eradicate Extreme Hunger and Poverty; (2) Reduce Child Mortality; (3) Improve Maternal Health; (4) Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases; and (5) Ensure Environmental Sustainability with the extensive roll-out and deployment of Community Health Teams (CHTs) in our locality to ensure availment of all health services among the less fortunate ones.
I am very much eager to be working with all of you as I look forward for a harmonious and successful collaboration among our partners and stakeholders.
Maraming Salamat at Mabuhay Tayong Lahat!
