Bong Go pushes for improved local healthcare accessibility

Senator Christopher “Bong” Go recently attended the inauguration of a new Super Health Center in Barangay Poblacion, Anilao, Iloilo. This event coincided with his participation in the 2nd Rose Festival in the same town.

During the inauguration, Senator Go emphasized the vital role that Super Health Centers play in improving healthcare standards at the community level by bringing government services closer to the grassroots.

These centers aim to bridge the gap between the government and communities, especially in remote and underserved areas, providing a variety of services from early disease detection to essential medical care.

Senator Go, along with fellow lawmakers, the Department of Health led by Secretary Teodoro “Ted” Herbosa, and local government units, secured adequate funding for the establishment of over 700 Super Health Centers nationwide, including 27 in Iloilo province.

Local government officials, including Rep. Ferj Biron, Rep. Jojo Ang, Governor Arthur Defensor Jr, and Anilao Mayor Lee Ann Debuque, expressed their gratitude to Senator Go for his continuous support and dedication to improving healthcare services in the district.

Additionally, Senator Go distributed grocery packs, snacks, shirts, and sports equipment to barangay health workers during the event. He also offered further assistance to Ilonggos in need of medical help through the Malasakit Centers program, which he sponsored.

The Malasakit Centers in Iloilo have benefited numerous Filipinos, and Senator Go continues to support various projects to create more opportunities for the province.

In his closing remarks, Senator Go reiterated his commitment to serving the people and emphasized the importance of helping others, as it is a service to God. The senator is widely known as Mr. Malasakit for his compassionate service to the less fortunate.
