Medical services reach remote indigenous community in Abra
by PIA release

SALLAPADAN, Abra – As part of its mandate of recognizing, protecting and promoting the rights and wellbeing of Tingguians, the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples provincial office recently conducted a medical mission in Ud-Udiao here, one of the remotest IP communities in the province.

“We had to reach these areas no matter how far they may be located as we are mandated by the Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Act of 1997 to look after their needs and wellbeing,” NCIP-Abra Head Genesis Quiblado said.

“Ti nasalun-at nga Itneg, nabileg. Ti nasalun-at a Tingguian, saan a maitarayan. Ti nasalun-at a Masadiit, saan a maidalit” (A healthy Itneg is strong. A healthy Tingguian cannot be left behind, and a healthy Masadiit is always fit), Quiblado added.

NCIP-Abra partnered with the Rural Health Unit (RHU) of Sallapadan headed by Dr. Day Blythe Mamaradlo. 

More than 100 children and adult patients availed of the services and free medicines. Excess medicines were turned-over to the RHU.

The NCIP also distributed nebulizers, blood pressure monitoring apparatuses, and weighing scales to all the barangays of Sallapadan through their respective barangay health workers.
“Maragsakan ti NCIP a mangidanon ti serbisio ti gobierno kadagitoy a luglugar gapu ta maibilang dagiti indigenous peoples kadagiti vulnerable sectors ti sociodad” (The NCIP is happy to bring government services in these areas because indigenous peoples are among the vulnerable sectors in our society), Quiblado said.

“Sirmata ti linteg nga IPRA nga amin koma a nainsigudan a tattao ditoy Pilipinas, pakairamanantayo a Tingguian ditoy Abra, ket mapabileg ken mapasantak ti biag ngem kardayo a mapasamak daytoy no ti pisikal a bagi ket adu ti sagubanitna isu a maiyannatop la unay daytoy a programa nga intayo insayangkat”(The IPRA  aims to ensure that all indigenous peoples in the Philippines  including the Tingguians of Abra will have improved lives  but this will not happen if we are not  healthy that is why this  program [medical mission] is very appropriate), he added.

Quiblado thanked the NCIP-Abra and LGU of Sallapadan for the medical mission.
