This came when senior health officials allegedly plotted over the millions of dollar in cash for the cancer program, according to Dr. Clarito Cairo Jr., program manager for the DOH Disease Prevention and Control Bureau’s cancer control section.

“Everything was done in a transparent manner; not only did the Department of Health give the direction and decision, but we also included and consulted the experts at the National Integrated Cancer Control Council,” said DOH officer-in-charge Maria Rosario Vergeire in a press conference. “Hindi lamang po ang Kagawaran ng Kalusugan ang nagbigay ng desisyon at direksiyon dito, isinama natin at is

The top national policy-making organization for cancer control is the National Integrated Cancer Control Council.

the Jose R. Reyes Memorial Center (PHP16.5 million), the East Avenue Medical Center (PHP66.8 million), the Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PHP67.9 million), the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center (PHP32.8 million), the Mariano Marcos Memorial Hospital and Medical Center (PHP1.5 million), the Region 1 Medical Center (PHP38.6 million), the Cagayan Valley Medical Center (PHP45.1 million), and the D’Paulino J. Garcia

Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center ($50 million), Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital ($62.1 million), Zamboanga City Medical Center ($52.4 million), Bicol Regional Hospital and Medical Center ($84.7 million), Western Visayas Medical Center ($9.7 million), Northern Mindanao Medical Center ($85.4 million), Southern Philippines Medical Center ($76 million), and Davao Regional Medical Center ($9.7 million) (PHP44.8 million).

Vergeire, however, highlighted that the distribution of the funds was legal.

“Neither the DOH nor the accused have received this complaint,” she said. “All were expressed and stated in the media excursions and social media platforms.”
