Kalinga leaders ink MOA on Universal Health Care integration


Tabuk City, Kalinga – Delivery of health care services in the province is expected to step up with the memorandum of agreement for Universal Health Care (UHC) integration inked by various local chief executives in the province, led by Governor James Edduba, on Monday, July 3.


The MOA signing signifies fortified collaboration ties among local government units and ensures that they are fully committed to the successful implementation of the universal health care program.

Accordingly, one of the main provisions of the program is the improvement of rural health units, which, if implemented well, would result in the provision of dependable and accessible healthcare services at the community level.


It also prioritizes the organization of primary care networks and strengthens management capabilities.


In Kalinga, such program would reduce the number of referrals to the provincial hospital which is already accommodating a large number of patients, and would ensure that all the needed services shall already be provided by the RHUs.


Meantime, in the agreement made, the Provincial Health Board (PHB) is tasked with overseeing policy and strategic directions while the Provincial Health Office (PHO) will be responsible for ensuring the provision of technical support.


The fund to support said endeavor would come from the Special Health Fund.


On July 18 this year, a formal MOA signing with representatives from PhilHealth and the Department of Health (DOH), in connection to said program is slated at the Davidson Hotel.
