Let us help you decide on the latest news about Noynoy,
Aquino Health Agenda (AHA) the elections, and the issues that
face the nation.
Universal Health Care is the cornerstone of our health agenda.
Email Address:
Fifteen years ago, the National Health Insurance Law, which created the
Health Insurance Corporation of PhilHealth, called for health insurance
for all Filipinos by 2010 – this year.
Sadly, the government is almost sure to fall short as health insurance
barely protects 38% of all Filipinos today, as noted in the National
Demographic and Health Survey of 2008.
If given the trust of the people, an Aquino administration will achieve
Universal Health Care in three years or less.
The Aquino administration will go beyond ensuring that each Filipino has
a PhilHealth card. Universal Health Care should mean that every
PhilHealth cardholder will get not merely the card; but more important,
the essential health services, basic medicines and appropriate quality
health care.
The Aquino administration will also direct PhilHealth to expand
outpatient health care benefits as required by law.
The Aquino administration will work with LGUs and the private health
sector to make sure that accredited services are available in hospitals
and clinics everywhere.

Access to Health through Improved Health Infrastructure

Our health infrastructure needs a boost given the gaps in health


facilities. Beginning at the barangay level we will fund 22,000 more
barangay health stations, 3,000 more outpatient Rural Health Units and
at least 150 more district hospitals.
This will ensure that health services are not only affordable but also
accessible to each family and the whole Filipino community. The Filipino
people can expect this from an Aquino administration.
The Aquino administration will implement all the benefits stipulated in the
Magna Carta for Public Health Workers. I am prepared to work closely
with LGUs to improve their health services.
There should be no lack of medicines and instruments in facilities with
quality health providers. The Aquino administration will guarantee that
the 100 of the most essential drugs in generics are available in every
health facility all the time. The Aquino administration will work with toll
manufacturers to ensure that this will be a reality.

A Holistic and Comprehensive Health Care System

To ensure a holistic and comprehensive Health Care System, the


Aquino administration will ensure that the national health budget will be
at least 5% of the national budget.
The Aquino administration will leverage the national health budget to
increase investments in health from the private sector.
To these ends, the Aquino administration will establish a National Health
Development Fund.

Conclusion

The actions of the Aquino administration to achieve universal health care


are as follows:

All Filipinos will have access to essential health care, medicines and
services.
Philhealth will be a genuine social health insurance where all Filipinos
are covered.

There will be universal health care for all Filipinos under the Aquino
administration.

However, let us be clear and frank with each other. Our shared dream of
universal health care and the goals we aim for can only be achieved if,
together, we stand vigilant and fight corruption – the disease that plagues
our government and our society.

Corruption has deprived our people life saving medicines, our children
basic immunization and other health care services.
Corruption and poverty are the root causes of our suffering as a nation.
If there is no corruption, all our goals for healthcare in our countrymen
will be achieved.
In 2009 alone, 280 Billion Pesos of the national budget was lost to
corruption (according to the Center for National Budget Legislation).
This does not yet include revenues lost due to inefficiencies and corrupt
practices in tax collection.
With 280 Billion, we could’ve built 560,000 health clinics around the
country.
The fight against corruption is our fight. This fight should be led by the
top leader of our country. The next president should be trusted to not
steal or abuse power.
I will not deliberately mislead you. I am prepared to stand by my track
record in public service – nine years in Congress and more than two
years in the Senate. Before that, in the administration of my late mother,
not even once did I abuse power or authority or was I linked to any
scandal.
Honesty and integrity, a clean record of public service, a clear vision,
and the will to carry it out – these are the fundamental qualities our next
leader must have if we are to eliminate corruption in our government.
Kung walang corrupt, walang mahirap!
