newsletter cover

Kalusugan Pangkalahatan is the government’s agenda to promote better health outcomes in the least possible cost. DOH on Wheels is a symbolic strategy of the Department of Health to transmit the key message that health care services are extended to the farthest corners of the nation. This will also empower the community to avail of these services from the local government units. The attainment of the millennium development goals is not the sole responsibility of the department. Rather, success can be grasped through a collaborative effort of both the public and private sectors. We encourage everyone to take part in the ride towards a healthier nation.
