Sun.Star Pampanga - - FRONT PAGE -

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – Vice-Gover­nor Den­nis “Delta” Pineda urged the new­est ben­e­fi­cia­ries of Phil­health in Sas­muan and Sta. Rita towns to al­ways prac­tice the pre­ven­tive health man­age­ment sys­tem ap­proach.

“Preven­tion is bet­ter than cure,” he said.

To re­duce the risk of ac­quir­ing dis­eases, to main­tain health sta­bil­ity and to as­sure well­ness, the vice-gover­nor re­minded them the im­por­tance of be­ing Phil­health mem­bers. “Take your health as a pri­or­ity. Phil­health is the ac­cess of every Filipino to re­ceive health care ser­vices for free. With this, re­gard­less of so­cial sta­tus - ev­ery­one has the right to avail

of much needed ben­e­fits when health con­cerns arise,” he added.

The 2,182 in­di­vid­u­als from Sta. Rita and 3,259 from Sas­muan are in­cluded as mem­bers of Phil­health, in line with the “Alaga Ka Road­show” of the Na­tional Govern­ment and Provin­cial Govern­ment led by Gover­nor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda.

It can be re­called that be­fore the na­tional govern­ment im­ple­mented the pre­ven­tive health man­age­ment sys­tem, the lady gover­nor al­ready ini­ti­ated it in the prov­ince.

The prov­ince al­lot­ted a bud­get for med­i­cal vans, den­tal buses, mo­bile clin­ics and a phar­macy that will roam Pam­panga, es­pe­cially in re­mote and coastal ar­eas, to con­duct out­reach pro­grams for Ka­pam­pan­gans’reg­u­lar checku ps.

More­over, Sec­ond Dis­trict Board Mem­ber An­thony Joseph Tor­res, chair of the provin­cial board com­mit­tee on health, as­sured the at­ten­dees the help­ing hand of Capi­tol in terms of med­i­cal as­sis­tance.

Mean­while, Board Mem­ber Fritzie DavidDi­zon, Lubao Mayor My­lyn Pineda-Cayabyab, Sta. Rita Mayor Fer­di­nand Salalila with Sang­gun­i­nang Bayan mem­bers, and Sas­muan of­fi­cials led by Mayor Nardo Ve­lasco, also as­sisted the vice gover­nor in distribut­ing the Phil­health mem­ber­ships.
