DOH, USAID Bring Primary Health Care Services to Tondo

Department of Health Officer-in-Charge Maria Rosario Singh-Vergeire, together with United States Agency for International Development Missions Director Ryan Washburn and USAID officials, today led the “Healthy at Happy sa Barangay 20: A walkthrough in slums of Tondo” event in Tondo, Manila, to hold activities that promote health and wellness in the community.

Covering the seven priority areas of DOH’s Health Promotion Framework Strategy, DOH and USAID led the conduct of various health and wellness activities such as nutrition program, free medical consultations, information dissemination on TB prevention, mobile van check ups, among others.

“We extend our gratitude to the USAID and the local administration of Tondo, Manila for helping the DOH push forth initiatives that promote health and wellness to families. Truly, with efforts like these, we are on the road to a Healthy Pilipinas where Filipinos are health-literate and health-seeking individuals striving to achieve optimum health.” said OIC Vergeire.
