City Health holds last batch of Bridging Leadership Training of Barangay Officials

The Office of the City Health has conducted the last batch of Bridging Leadership Training among barangay officials last July 30 – 31, 2014.

The said training is an initiative of my administration to address the health inequities by instilling to the local officials the ownership and accountability regarding the different health issues at the barangay level.

This activity was conceived when our City Health Officer and I attended the Municipal Local Governance Program sponsored by the Department of Health in partnership with the Zuellig Family Foundation.

Part of the training is for the barangay to establish the Barangay Health Board as well as to create a Barangay Health Plan which will be the guide of the barangay officials in implementing health programs of the government.

Health has been a priority of this administration in line with the Kalusugang Pangkalahatan or Universal Healthcare Program under the Aquino Health Agenda of President Simeon Benigno Aquino III.
