MANILA, Philippines – Humihirit ang Department of Health (DOH), Miyerkoles, ng P93 bilyon dagdag-pondo para sa ilang programa nito sa 2022.

“The DOH is appealing for additional P92.8 billion for 17 [programs, activities, and projects] under [the] DOH-[Office of the Secretary] and P260 million for the National Nutrition Council,” ani Health Secretary Francisco Duque III sa Senate budget hearing.

Sa kanyang presentasyon, ipinakita ni Duque ang pangangailangan ng DOH ng P77.46 billion para sa mga programa at proyekto nilang may kinalaman sa Universal Health Care Law at COVID-19 response.

Habang nasa P15.33 billion ang kakailanganin para sa pagpapatupad naman ng iba pang health-related laws.

Inisa-isa ni Duque sa mga senador kung saang programa ilalagak ang inihhirit niyang dagdag-pondo:

-P51.3 billion for healthcare workers’ benefits and compensation of those who contracted or died of COVID-19.

-P11.8 billion to “close the remaining nine-month gap” of laboratory testing commodities

-P2.5 billion for the hiring of COVID-19 vaccinators

-P430 million for the renewal of existing personnel responsible for COVID surveillance units; adverse effects following immunization unit; and maintenance and upgrading of information systems like COVIDKaya and FASSSTER, as well as the capital outlay for surveillance activities

-P667 million for whole genome sequencing of the variants of concern

Iginiit niya pa na pinakakailangan ang dagdag na P3.3 billion para napanatili ang bilang ng mga nars na ipinakakalat ngayon.

“The total budget requirement needed by the DOH-OSEC will now amount to P254.3 billion and this corresponds to the current [National Expenditure Program] level plus these budget appeals,” dagdag pa ng kalihim. RNT
