CITY OF SAN FERNANDO - The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) has approved the Alagang Nanay Preventive Health Care Ordinance of 2022 on Monday, October 3.

Vice Governor Lilia Pineda said the ordinance aims to institutionalize the Provincial Integration of Universal Health Care Law.

This law provides that a province-wide health system, through the Provincial Health Office, for the delivery of the promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative, and palliative components of health care within the province.

The province-wide health system shall link at least one apex or end-referral hospital.

““Itong Alagang Nanay Preventive Healthcare Mission na ‘to, naisip namin ni Governor Delta na gawin namin siyang ordinansa. Dahil noong nakaraang COVID-19 pandemic, nakita natin, lahat ng mortality rito sa Pampanga, kung iimbestigahan mo, puro sila may existing na sakit na hindi nila alam. Dahil do’n, napadali ang buhay nila,” Pineda said.

The vice governor asked mayors to help the province with the data banking of all possible health beneficiaries in Pampanga.

““Ibibigay natin sa kanila ‘yung ibang trabaho. Kailangan magkaroon sila ng Technical Working Group for Alagang Nanay Preventive Healthcare, kailangan may doktor sila, at mga tao na tutulong sa pagkuha ng mga datos ng kung anu-anong sakit sa kani-kanilang mga bayan,” Pineda added.
