MESSAGE OF MAYOR LEOPOLDO N. BATAOIL ON UHC LEADERSHIP & GOVERNANCE POLICY FRAMEWORK ORIENTATION
The past few years have showed us how leadership and excellence in health care as well as in policy framework are necessary both in the ordinary times and more so in extraordinary circumstances.
May this event participated in by local chief executives and other stakeholders usher us all toward developing better and furthered policies.
The LMP Pang Chapter hereby support the implementation of UHC in the Province of Pangasinan in coordination with the Provincial Government under the leadership of Gov Ramon V Guico III, Vice Governor Mark Ronald Lambino together with the Sangguniang Panlalawigan and with all the representatives of the 6 Congressional Districts.
As the President of the Chapter, I enjoin all the Local Government Units to launch the program in alI the 44 municipalities and ensure its promotion for the benefit of our people.
“Universal Health Care (UHC) is a national priority of the government to provide quality healthcare services to all individuals, ensuring financial protection and equity. The progress towards UHC transition has largely been positive; however, to further advance it requires resources that low- and middle-income countries (and LGUs) may struggle to meet. But the need at this time of health crisis is evident, and there is a loud cry from our constituents for immediate intervention, hence this national and local initiative.
Thank you, President Bongbong Marcos, Senators and Congressmen for passing this into law.
Anew, thank you all. Here’s to working hand in hand in the name of public service and good governance.
God bless us all.
