PhilHealth hopes to enroll remaining 2% of population without coverage by 2020
September 2, 2019 | 10:53 pm

THE Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) hopes to enroll the remaining 2% of the population in its insurance scheme by the close of the first year of the Universal Health Care (UHC) Law in 2020, Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III said.

In a statement, Mr. Duque said 100% coverage is expected to be achieved for state-owned PhilHealth’s National Health Insurance Program (NHIP).

Ewan ko kung anong nangyayari sa DOH. Parang puro lang sila declare na may outbreak ng ganyan ganito. Pero wala naman akong nakikitang action. Bumaba yung vaccination due to Dengvaxia scare daw. Pero ano ginawa nila to fight that?

The DOH always had vaccination programs for all kids from infants to teens. I used to work for that department. Even street kids and incarcerated juveniles were included in the routine vaccination program. Immunisation drives had been routine even before these epidemics, from the national to the barangay level. Since that Dengvaxia fiasco and further aggravated by the misinformation spread by the media and PAO, parents got scared to bring their children in.
Now, the country is paying the price for their indiscretion. Aside from the dengue pandemic, we had the most number of measles cases in the Asia Pacific region. Polio had been eradicated from the Philippines since the early 1990s. These preventable diseases, excluding dengue fever, measles and polio, shouldn't have appeared in the first place if our vaccination rates are high. We could have instead be focusing on the dengue outbreak alone.
The DOH had done their job but those ignorant journalists and grandstanding politicians scared the wits out of those parents. Vaccines had been proven since time to prevent and eradicate disease, most notably Smallpox, which was last reported in the 1970s due to the aggressive vaccination programs carried out by the World Health Organization.
As for polio, only 2 countries are considered as breeding grounds (Pakistan and Afghanistan) for the virus but polio had spread to neighbouring countries where vaccination rates are low. In the Western Pacific region, polio is now eradicated, thanks to the WHO program.

TBH considering how ridiculously easy and cheap it is to have polio vaccines, its pretty much a national embarrassment why DA PILIPINS would suddenly have an outbreak. Afghanistan and Pakistan kinda have an excuse considering how remote their countries are, not to mention some war torn areas. The other two countries that I think still have them as of 2018 is Syria, which has a freaking war (and whose outbreak was apparently recently stopped), and Nigeria which is an African country that is poorer than DA PILIPINs. Yes, this is a DOH issue and a really stupid one at best, but this is also a family issue since vaccines are free and people bearing children should be aware to ensure that their kids are immunized for diseases like this.

Parang wala - natulog sa pansitan si Duque. Imbis na mag mass info drive, wala sige malunod nalang lahat sa all news Dengvaxia.

Pero wala, busy kasi sa ibang bagay (read: apparent conflict of interest)

Tapos ngayong na re-emerge sa Pinas, the usual Pinoy mentality aksyon after the fact:

Vaccination program

Earlier, the DOH said it was aiming to have 5.5 million children vaccinated as a measure against the rise of polio in the country following its re-emergence after 19 years.

According to the DOH, the polio vaccination program started in August 2019 in Metro Manila.

For next month, they aim to simultaneously hold a vaccination program for children below five years old in Metro Davao City and Lanao del Sur.

"The polio vaccinations happen all year round, but our coverage dropped for the past five years," Rolando Enrique Domingo, an undersecretary of the Department of Health, told Reuters.

"We've learned our lesson. It is time to move on and really start vaccinating all kids and make sure we sustain this every year."

Vaccination teams will aim to administer polio drops to every child younger than five, he added. — RSJ, GMA News

Yan nga yung pinagtataka ko eh. For sure may list or may numbers ang DOH ng mga bata sa lahat ng lugar sa Pilipinas. Wala ba silang target na dapat 100% by end of each year and kung ano yung status diba? Tsaka kung hindi 100% sure ba na purely Dengvaxia scare ang reason? Medyo kaduda-duda naman.

As per the same report

Ano yun? Ngayon lang ulit nila na-realize na dapat seryosohin yung pagroll-out ng yearly vaccination?! Dati meron pero so-so lang, ganun ba? Kaloka.

Yung sa Dengue case for example. Dati naaalala ko meron na pinu-push talaga yung mga LGU's na maglinis and i-ensure na walang stagnant water sa paligid. Tapos meron pang pa fogging.

Blaming her on this Polio case is another easy way out to held people accountable yet again. It's been proven our vaccination program is consistently being underfunded at least since 2014 as per COA and yet we're surprised things like this happened? DOH seems to be incompetent compared to the rest of government departments. If there's no vaccine in the first place why would you blame the scared parents? I think even DOH data shows that's not the case.

I won't be surprised if DOH has a lot of corrupt officials that is still in position now that's why this is happening.

Duque seems to care more about the image of one of their biggest financiers than actually doing their job. Stupid reasoning which is contradicting their own data. Doesn't really surprise me since apparently his own family benefitted while he's in position.

DOH signs Universal Health Care implementing rules
Quote:
MANILA - Health Secretary Francisco Duque on Thursday led the signing of the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) of the Universal Health Care Act.
This will pave the way for the implementation of the law, signed last February, that would provide health care coverage for all Filipinos.
Under the law, all Filipinos will be assigned to a primary care provider or a health worker who shall be the first contact of health care. They will deliver free essential health services and will guide patients through different health care facilities.
