Health clubs in Abra revived
by PIA Abra

BUCAY, Abra – The municipal government, in partnership with the Department of Health-Abra, continues to support and strengthen the Hypertension and Diabetes Health Club of this town as part of its health advocacy.

Municipal nurse Marlene Bringas facilitated the re-organization of the Bucay Hypertension and Diabetes Health Club last May 3, with Dr. Eman Palos of DOH-Abra and representatives from the Office of Mayor Bernadette C. Baroña.

The move aims to push the efforts and initiatives of the patients-members to sustain their own health program to prevent hypertension and diabetes not only for their own treatment but also in support for the advocacy.

Palos said the tripartite initiative involves a counterpart system in the procurement of medicines for the patients who are at the same time members of the club.

The three parties involved take turns in the purchase of the maintenance medicines. The LGU, the DOH, and the club each have an assigned month to purchase the medicines so that each one has a responsibility to sustain the program.

The parties will also work together to promote the campaign on the prevention of the two lifestyle diseases that are becoming among the major causes of death.

Club members also help the RHU personnel in conducting campaigns.
