New health facilities in Marawi built thru strong partnership--MOH BARMM

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)—The newly built health facilities in here rose from the ground with the strong partnership of various government stakeholders as their foundation, stated the Ministry of Health (MOH) of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).

Seeing the latest successful construction of five barangay health stations (BHS) and two rural health units (RHUs), MOH-BARMM Finance and Administrative Director Laxaman Bangcola thanked the city government and barangay local government units (BLGUs) for doing their part.

He shared that the former pushed for the endorsement of the construction sites while the latter donated a part of their land property where the infrastructures would be built.  

Bangcola likewise expressed his gratitude to the contractors as they became the partners of the MOH-BARMM and LGU in constructing the health facilities here.

Looking back on the contributors of this undertaking, he underlined that the provision of health services to constituents cannot be shouldered alone by the national and regional government as they would need the help of the city government as well, especially of the barangay local government units (BLGUs).

He noted that the BLGUs are tasked to monitor and support any health services delivered by the regional government.

“We have to cooperate with the LGU, regional office and the City Health Office. We have to coordinate our efforts. Magsama-sama tayo dito nang sa ganoon ang mithiin nating maibaba ang mga sakit ay ating magampanan [Let us be united so that our dream of pulling down those who are sick will be fulfilled],” said Bangcola.

The health executive earlier underscored that their regional office has been ensuring the welfare of the CHO here through putting it first in the regional programs to convey the love and unlimited support of the BARMM to the city.

Moreover, they have also been aiming to provide basic healthcare services convenient to the residents, especially in isolated areas.

Now, with the inauguration of new BHS and RHUs, Bangcola is positive that citizens in benefitting villages can already seek help whenever necessary.

“Isa sa mga layunin namin ay upang ang serbisyong pangkalusugan ay mapalapit natin sa mga tao at mamamayan dahil alam natin na ang iba sa atin ay hindi nakakarating doon sa CHO o hospital so nilapit nalang natin ang health center para kahit anumang oras, kahit na sa gabi, sila ay handang magserbisyo,” he said.

[One of our aims is for the health services to be delivered nearer to the people and communities because we know that some of us cannot go to CHO or hospital so we are bringing the health center nearer so that anytime, even in the evening, they are ready to serve.

Bangcola then urged the benefitting residents to take care of the health facilities so that the provision of health services would also continue. (CRG/PIA-10/Lanao del Sur)
