DOH plans to analyze and intervene in the health of 2.46 million Bicolanos.
Between March 1 and March 31, the Bicol Department of Health (DOH-5) will conduct health assessments on 2,460,994 local residents as part of the Philippine Package for Essential Non-Communicable Diseases Interventions (PhilPEN).
The goal of the activity, according to Dr. Monrey Isaiah Mancilla, director of the DOH-5 Non-Communicable Disease Control and Prevention Cluster and concurrent director of the Health Promotion and Communication Cluster, was to provide early diagnosis, management, and treatment for a variety of diseases that may affect people aged 20 and over.
“The Mass PhilPEN is a regional initiative that will determine whether there are any risk factors for the early diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), including hypertension and diabetes. In addition to the fixed and modified fixed post setup, health care providers must visit families, especially in remote locations, to provide PhilPEN services “added he.
Mancilla stated that a community-based, mass PhilPEN risk assessment system will be put into place.
In order for the health workers to accurately analyze the public’s health state and provide appropriate care, he urged them to take part in the activity by answering the questions from the health workers honestly.
“Join the Mass PhilPEN Risk Assessment Activity and get screened at your local health facility if you are 20 years of age or older. In the fight against NCDs, maintaining a balanced diet, engaging in physical activity, and abstaining from alcohol and tobacco products are also crucial “added Mancilla.***
