The covid-19 response is boosted in Eastern Samar, and women’s health is improved.

Eastern Samar province has been awarded two “groundbreaking” health initiatives to help it fight coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) and enhance women’s health.

In a phone interview on Wednesday, DOH Eastern Visayas regional information officer Jelyn Lopez Malibago said the health department and the United Nations Population Fund are jointly funding these two initiatives (UNFPA).

In a ceremony conducted at the Eastern Samar provincial hospital grounds in Borongan City on Tuesday, officials formally handed over the PHP10 million Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facility (TTMF) and the PHP7 million Women’s Health on Wheels (WHoW) program to the provincial government.

“With a 10 to 12-bed capacity, the TTMF would act as an extension of the province’s hospitals in treating probable, confirmed, mild, and moderate Covid-19 patients.” The goal is to lower hospital utilization rates in the event of another Covid-19 outbreak, according to Malibago.

WHoW, on the other hand, is an emergency mobile maternity modular facility designed to support the delivery of women’s health services in the aftermath of an emergency, particularly in the areas of sexual and reproductive health and the health response to gender-based violence.

The facility will be most useful in locations where reproductive and health care services are scarce.

Eastern Samar is the program’s first recipient in the Eastern Visayas region.
