The Department of Health’s services were not impacted by the health secretary position’s recent vacancy (DOH).

DOH officer-in-charge Maria Rosario Vergeire stated in a press conference on Friday that she did not see any “different from or difficulty in” carrying out her duties in her current position within the organization.

With no interruptions at all, she claimed, “the authority granted to me has prompted us to continue with all the services and operations.”

‘Yung (the) appointing power, I don’t think that would be significant at this moment for us because we still have our officials intact and all are working,’ she added. “What I think would only be the difference would be the appointing authority.

She claimed she could easily discuss matters requiring “clarification and extra authority” with President Ferdinand R. Marcos.

“We consult them when further backing is needed on the decision to be made and they provide advise,” she continued. “Kapag kailangan ng additional backup doon sa decision na gagawin, tinatanong at sinasangguni natin sa kanila at binibigyan naman nila tayo ng guidance.”

Camilo Cascolan, the retired chief of the Philippine National Police, is “quite qualified for the role considering his credentials,” according to Vergeire, even though they are still discussing his particular assignment as undersecretary of the department.

Marcos had previously stated that Cascolan would do an “administrative audit” that would look at the operations of the agency but would not investigate health-related issues.
