Tanudan, KalingaEmployees and officials of the Municipal Government of Tanudan may now undergo regular annual physical and medical check-ups for free.

With Vice Governor Dave Odiem presiding, members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan during their regular session on June 15, 2021, approved Ordinance No. 2021-056, allowing the Tanudan local government to conduct free check-ups for their public servants.

The ordinance is an amendment on Section 5 and Section 6 of Ordinance No. 31 S. 2017 otherwise known as an Ordinance providing regular annual physical and medical check-ups for all employees and municipal officials of the municipality.

Mayor Jaedicke Rhoss Dagadag stressed that there is a need to provide annual check-ups for free to every worker to ensure their health is checked, so that they continue to deliver services to the public promptly and efficiently.

“Daytoy free check-up kadagiti empleyado tayo ket bassit lang a maited tayo kumpara kadagiti rigat ti trabaho ken tapno met masigurado a nasayaat da. Tapno kasta ket agtultuloy a maidanun da ti serbisyo para kadagiti kakailyan,” he said.

The ordinance reads that the free annual physical and medical check-ups cover Chest X-ray, Complete Blood Count (CBC), Urinalysis, Fecalysis, Lipid Profile, and Drug Test.

It also states that the funding for the implementation of the ordinance shall be chargeable to the office of the municipal mayor under the special appropriation, specifically in support of regular annual physical and medical check-up of employees and municipal officials.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives on June 1 approved on third and final reading a measure providing for a free annual medical check-up for Filipinos.
