Put the pay of health workers first, and Go advises his coworkers.

On Thursday, Senator Christopher Lawrence Go urged the bipartisan conference committee to make sure that funding for healthcare employees’ One Covid-19 Allowance (OCA) or Health Emergency Allowance (HEA) be given priority.

According to Go, the bicam committee has promised to reconcile the projected budget for the release of unpaid allowances and maintain the payment of these benefits to healthcare workers in the following year.

“It is possible to ibigay using them. It was halaga at the time in the sakripisyong ginawa of the person. They should receive what is owed to them, according to the tulong of the healthcare workers in the Covid-19 campaign, which means that they should be given their proper pay and benefits in order to effectively address the crisis at hand. When compared to the sacrifices they have made, this is a relatively modest sum. Without the assistance of our healthcare workers, who made sacrifices and even gave their lives so we could survive this crisis, we would not have been able to complete this campaign against Covid-19 “Go spoke after a Super Health Center was officially opened in Bian City, Laguna, and aid was given to those in need and those affected by flooding.

In a recent letter to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), the Department of Health requested an additional PHP27 billion for HEAs.

Go, the chair of the Senate Health Committee, committed to finding a means to pay the allowances in the 2023 federal budget.

“I am asking my colleagues in the bicam, the Senate, the Congress, and even the executive that when the time comes, little by little they should be given what they deserve,” the lawmaker pleaded. “Ako po ay nakikiusap sa mga kasamahan ko sa bicam, sa senado, sa kongreso, ang even sa executive na pagdating ng panahon.”

The disbursement of about PHP11.5 billion for OCA and HEA claims to more than 1.6 million qualified beneficiaries for the period of January to June 2022 was approved by the DBM in October of this year.

Officer in Charge of DOH Maria Rosario Vergeire, the undersecretary, anticipates that the unpaid stipends will be released before Christmas.
