    At 9:30 am, the Vice President attended the Philippine Conference on Community Health (PCCH) 2019 at the UP Manila Campus, Ermita, Manila. With a vision of bringing medical service to the underprivileged regions in the Philippines, the conference was organized by the Regionalization Students Organization (RSO), a duly recognized student organization in the UP College of Medicine (UPCM). The event aimed to equip participants with skills and knowledge on how to address issues hounding the local community health system through a multi-perspective, culturally-sensitive, and grassroots approach.

    In her speech, the Vice President talked about the Office of the Vice President’s Angat Buhay program. She emphasized that collaboration among different groups are needed to have successful interventions in communities. “There are so many private groups that are willing to help but just don’t know how. Talagang sobrang daming gustong tumulong. And when you are doctors already and you will be immersing yourselves in the communities, you will also realize this—that you cannot solve the health programs of the communities by yourselves. You would need the collaboration from not just the local government unit, but also the private sector community in that particular locality. Kasi iyong kaya lang ng gobyerno is never enough. Kailangang pagtulung-tulungan lahat.”
