Cot BHW’s celebrate years of service as health front liners

Amas, Kidapawan City – After a two-day gathering, some 2,800 Barangay Health Workers (BHW) went home refreshed and excited for another year of service to the people.

The front liners in implementing government health programs in their communities took some time from their usual routines back home and duty schedules and had some work-related stuff and a lot of fun at the BHW Provincial Congress held at the Provincial Gymnasium on November 28-29, 2016.

On the first day, delegates were briefed about the Philippine Agenda and the Role of BHW and updates on dengue and the rest were fun time for them as they participated in various games and friendly competitions such as the Search for Mutya ng BHW 2016.

On its 26th year, the BHW Congress opening program was graced by Acting Governor Shirlyn Macasarte-Villanueva who extended the provincial government’s gratefulness and salutation to BHWs who she said are not only doing their job but loving it. The acting governor also stressed the barangay health workers’ invaluable contribution in identifying the health issues and concerns of the people which become basis for LGUs as to the kind of health services and programs should be prioritized and implemented in the communities.

Thus, even the doctors, and nurses like her who studied years in the field of medicine have high respect for them, she said. Some Sangguniang Panlalawigan members which include Board Member Kellie U. Antao, BM Jonathan M. Tabara and ABC Federation Pres. Dulia Sultan were also present and gave high regard to the BHWs for their dedication and commitment.

Board members Tabara and Sultan also served as BHWs in their respective localities before they have been elected to public office.

On the other hand, Dr. Eva Rabaya, head of the Integrated Provincial Health Office (IPHO) and long time BHW President Mary Jean S. Cadungon challenged the delegates to keep up the good work and continue to be part of a great mission for the people.

Anchored on its Serbisyong Totoo advocacy, the provincial government has strengthened its health programs in the barangays with the help of local government units, and local service providers like BHWs and barangay nutirition scholars. This is to ensure that people away from the mainstream still get access to the government’s health services. (Laurifel Q. Gonzales, PGO-Media Center, Photos by LQG)
