Free Dialysis Treatment For Poor Patients Proposed



Cases of kidney failures in the Philippines are rising  and patients suffering from the disease need to undergo dialysis treatment. The problem is, the treatments cost a lot. Sadly, not every Filipino could afford it especially those who live in rural areas and  those who belong to the urban poor.  A bill requiring all government hospitals to provide free dialysis treatment to underprivileged and poor patients has been proposed in the senate by Senator Sonny Angara.   Senate Bill 1329 or the proposed Dialysis Center Act, authored by Angara,  said the measure is in line with the government’s efforts “to reform the health sector and provide Filipinos with comprehensive health services.” The Senator noted that poor patients suffering from kidney ailment who are in the provinces could not afford the expenses of traveling all the way to the cities to seek dialysis treatment and to pay for the treatment itself.  He also cited that some people ,due to their poverty, are dying without even being given the chance to undergo a dialysis treatment because they could not afford to pay for it.      DOH figures does not include all of those who are suffering from kidney failures. It only include those who were not able to undergo dialysis due to lack of financial ability and the inaccessible proximity of available dialysis centers in rural areas.   If this proposal would materialize sooner, a new ray of hope would shine to the faces of the poor Filipinos. They could have the gift of a longer life, enough for them to enjoy the company of their loved ones a few days more.          RECOMMENDED: Poor PGH Patients to Benefit From P100Million Funds From President Rodrigo Duterte Known to be a President with a soft spot for the  poor and those who are in the lace of society, President Rodrigo Duterte has once again proved it when he allocated P100 million to fund the hospitalization of the poor patients at the state-owned Philippine General Hospital (PGH). The President turned over the check to PGH Director Dr. Gerardo Legaspi during a meeting in Malacañang on March 7, 2017.   In a statement released by Radio Television  Network Malacañang, it says that the said fund will be allocated for the underprivileged patients who cannot afford medical procedures and treatments.      The President has shown his soft spot for the poor after giving P2 billion from PAGCOR, to  the Department of Health  to be used for   the free medical assistance to the public.  Present during the meeting with the President were PGH Director Gerardo Legazpi,  Dr. Ireneo Quiron of the PGH Fiscal Services, Deputy Executive Secretary for Finance and Administration Rizalina Justol, and Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Christopher ‘Bong’ Go.  Recommended:   The President assures that he will bring 250 stranded OFWs from Saudi Arabia with him when he returned to the Philippines after a series of visit in the Middle East. During his speech in Davao before his departure, he said that God-willing, he will bring some OFWs in death row with him when he return to the country. During his speech in front of the Filipino Community in Riyadh , Saudi Arabia, President Duterte said that he will be bringing home the first batch of 250 OFWs who had been stranded in Saudi Arabia for a very long time, and they will continue to do it. "We are arranging for the transportation of 250 OFWs who hopefully be back to the Philippines in time for the return of President Rodrigo Duterte.., " DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III said. Secretary Bello also added that since the announcement of the Saudi Crown Prince Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Interior Prince Mohammed bin Naif Al Saud about the amnesty program for expats, DOLE has already sent an augmentation team to assist the OFWs to comply with the requirements for the amnesty and a lot of them have already availed it. According to Secretary Bello, they are also working on the unpaid claims of the OFWs and they are only validating it in order to establish their claims. If they are all been verified, OWWA will be paying their money claims in advance. President Duterte will also be visiting Bahrain and Qatar after his visit to Saudi Arabia and is expected to be back in the Philippines on April 17. Recommended: "They've been given the clearance. I will fly them home. When I return, I'll be bringing some of them home, " he said during a pre-departure press briefing in Davao City. Reports saying that the Embassy officials in Saudi Arabia have been acting slow with regards to helping stranded and runaway OFWs are not entirely correct according to Philippine Consul General Iric Arribas. He also said that the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh and the philippine Consulate in Jeddah are both providing the OFWs all the help they need which includes repatriation as well. 700 OFWs have been in jails in Saudi Arabia for various charges because there are no assistance coming from the Embassy officials, according to the reports from various OFW advocates. The OFWs are the reason why President Rodrigo Duterte is pushing through with the campaign on illegal drugs, acknowledging their hardships and sacrifices. He said that as he visit the countries where there are OFWs, he has heard sad stories about them: sexually abused Filipinas,domestic helpers being forced to work on a number of employers. "I have been to many places. I have been to the Middle East. You know, the husband is working in one place, the wife in another country. The so many sad stories I hear about our women being raped, abused sexually," The President said. About Filipino domestic helpers, he said: "If you are working on a family and the employer's sibling doesn't have a helper, you will also work for them. And if in a compound,the son-in-law of the employer is also living in there, you will also work for him.So, they would finish their work on sunrise." He even refer to the OFWs being similar to the African slaves because of the situation that they have been into for the sake of their families back home. Citing instances that some of them, out of deep despair, resorted to ending their own lives. The President also said that he finds it heartbreaking to know that after all the sacrifices of the OFWs working abroad for the future of their families they would come home just to learn that their children has been into illegal drugs. "I made no bones about my hatred. I said, 'If you do drugs in my city, if you destroy our daughters and sons, I'll just have to kill you.' I repeated the same warning when i became president," he said. Critics of the so-called violent war on drugs under President Duterte's administration includes local and international human rights groups, linking the campaign on thousands of drug-related killings. Police figures show that legitimate police operations have led to over 2,600 deaths of individuals involved in drugs since the war on drugs began. However, the war on drugs has been evident that the extent of drug menace should be taken seriously. The drug personalities includes high ranking officials and they thrive in the expense of our own children,if not being into drugs, being victimized by drug related crimes. The campaign on illegal drugs has somehow made a statement among the drug pushers and addicts. If the common citizen fear walking on the streets at night worrying about the drug addicts lurking in the dark, now they can walk peacefully while the drug addicts hide in fear that the police authorities might get them.

He also cited that some people ,due to their poverty, are dying without even being given the chance to undergo a dialysis treatment because they could not afford to pay for it.      DOH figures does not include all of those who are suffering from kidney failures. It only include those who were not able to undergo dialysis due to lack of financial ability and the inaccessible proximity of available dialysis centers in rural areas.   If this proposal would materialize sooner, a new ray of hope would shine to the faces of the poor Filipinos. They could have the gift of a longer life, enough for them to enjoy the company of their loved ones a few days more.          RECOMMENDED: Poor PGH Patients to Benefit From P100Million Funds From President Rodrigo Duterte Known to be a President with a soft spot for the  poor and those who are in the lace of society, President Rodrigo Duterte has once again proved it when he allocated P100 million to fund the hospitalization of the poor patients at the state-owned Philippine General Hospital (PGH). The President turned over the check to PGH Director Dr. Gerardo Legaspi during a meeting in Malacañang on March 7, 2017.   In a statement released by Radio Television  Network Malacañang, it says that the said fund will be allocated for the underprivileged patients who cannot afford medical procedures and treatments.      The President has shown his soft spot for the poor after giving P2 billion from PAGCOR, to  the Department of Health  to be used for   the free medical assistance to the public.  Present during the meeting with the President were PGH Director Gerardo Legazpi,  Dr. Ireneo Quiron of the PGH Fiscal Services, Deputy Executive Secretary for Finance and Administration Rizalina Justol, and Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Christopher ‘Bong’ Go.  Recommended:   The President assures that he will bring 250 stranded OFWs from Saudi Arabia with him when he returned to the Philippines after a series of visit in the Middle East. During his speech in Davao before his departure, he said that God-willing, he will bring some OFWs in death row with him when he return to the country. During his speech in front of the Filipino Community in Riyadh , Saudi Arabia, President Duterte said that he will be bringing home the first batch of 250 OFWs who had been stranded in Saudi Arabia for a very long time, and they will continue to do it. "We are arranging for the transportation of 250 OFWs who hopefully be back to the Philippines in time for the return of President Rodrigo Duterte.., " DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III said. Secretary Bello also added that since the announcement of the Saudi Crown Prince Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Interior Prince Mohammed bin Naif Al Saud about the amnesty program for expats, DOLE has already sent an augmentation team to assist the OFWs to comply with the requirements for the amnesty and a lot of them have already availed it. According to Secretary Bello, they are also working on the unpaid claims of the OFWs and they are only validating it in order to establish their claims. If they are all been verified, OWWA will be paying their money claims in advance. President Duterte will also be visiting Bahrain and Qatar after his visit to Saudi Arabia and is expected to be back in the Philippines on April 17. Recommended: "They've been given the clearance. I will fly them home. When I return, I'll be bringing some of them home, " he said during a pre-departure press briefing in Davao City. Reports saying that the Embassy officials in Saudi Arabia have been acting slow with regards to helping stranded and runaway OFWs are not entirely correct according to Philippine Consul General Iric Arribas. He also said that the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh and the philippine Consulate in Jeddah are both providing the OFWs all the help they need which includes repatriation as well. 700 OFWs have been in jails in Saudi Arabia for various charges because there are no assistance coming from the Embassy officials, according to the reports from various OFW advocates. The OFWs are the reason why President Rodrigo Duterte is pushing through with the campaign on illegal drugs, acknowledging their hardships and sacrifices. He said that as he visit the countries where there are OFWs, he has heard sad stories about them: sexually abused Filipinas,domestic helpers being forced to work on a number of employers. "I have been to many places. I have been to the Middle East. You know, the husband is working in one place, the wife in another country. The so many sad stories I hear about our women being raped, abused sexually," The President said. About Filipino domestic helpers, he said: "If you are working on a family and the employer's sibling doesn't have a helper, you will also work for them. And if in a compound,the son-in-law of the employer is also living in there, you will also work for him.So, they would finish their work on sunrise." He even refer to the OFWs being similar to the African slaves because of the situation that they have been into for the sake of their families back home. Citing instances that some of them, out of deep despair, resorted to ending their own lives. The President also said that he finds it heartbreaking to know that after all the sacrifices of the OFWs working abroad for the future of their families they would come home just to learn that their children has been into illegal drugs. "I made no bones about my hatred. I said, 'If you do drugs in my city, if you destroy our daughters and sons, I'll just have to kill you.' I repeated the same warning when i became president," he said. Critics of the so-called violent war on drugs under President Duterte's administration includes local and international human rights groups, linking the campaign on thousands of drug-related killings. Police figures show that legitimate police operations have led to over 2,600 deaths of individuals involved in drugs since the war on drugs began. However, the war on drugs has been evident that the extent of drug menace should be taken seriously. The drug personalities includes high ranking officials and they thrive in the expense of our own children,if not being into drugs, being victimized by drug related crimes. The campaign on illegal drugs has somehow made a statement among the drug pushers and addicts. If the common citizen fear walking on the streets at night worrying about the drug addicts lurking in the dark, now they can walk peacefully while the drug addicts hide in fear that the police authorities might get them.

Present during the meeting with the President were PGH Director Gerardo Legazpi,  Dr. Ireneo Quiron of the PGH Fiscal Services, Deputy Executive Secretary for Finance and Administration Rizalina Justol, and Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Christopher ‘Bong’ Go.  Recommended:   The President assures that he will bring 250 stranded OFWs from Saudi Arabia with him when he returned to the Philippines after a series of visit in the Middle East. During his speech in Davao before his departure, he said that God-willing, he will bring some OFWs in death row with him when he return to the country. During his speech in front of the Filipino Community in Riyadh , Saudi Arabia, President Duterte said that he will be bringing home the first batch of 250 OFWs who had been stranded in Saudi Arabia for a very long time, and they will continue to do it. "We are arranging for the transportation of 250 OFWs who hopefully be back to the Philippines in time for the return of President Rodrigo Duterte.., " DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III said. Secretary Bello also added that since the announcement of the Saudi Crown Prince Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Interior Prince Mohammed bin Naif Al Saud about the amnesty program for expats, DOLE has already sent an augmentation team to assist the OFWs to comply with the requirements for the amnesty and a lot of them have already availed it. According to Secretary Bello, they are also working on the unpaid claims of the OFWs and they are only validating it in order to establish their claims. If they are all been verified, OWWA will be paying their money claims in advance. President Duterte will also be visiting Bahrain and Qatar after his visit to Saudi Arabia and is expected to be back in the Philippines on April 17. Recommended: "They've been given the clearance. I will fly them home. When I return, I'll be bringing some of them home, " he said during a pre-departure press briefing in Davao City. Reports saying that the Embassy officials in Saudi Arabia have been acting slow with regards to helping stranded and runaway OFWs are not entirely correct according to Philippine Consul General Iric Arribas. He also said that the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh and the philippine Consulate in Jeddah are both providing the OFWs all the help they need which includes repatriation as well. 700 OFWs have been in jails in Saudi Arabia for various charges because there are no assistance coming from the Embassy officials, according to the reports from various OFW advocates. The OFWs are the reason why President Rodrigo Duterte is pushing through with the campaign on illegal drugs, acknowledging their hardships and sacrifices. He said that as he visit the countries where there are OFWs, he has heard sad stories about them: sexually abused Filipinas,domestic helpers being forced to work on a number of employers. "I have been to many places. I have been to the Middle East. You know, the husband is working in one place, the wife in another country. The so many sad stories I hear about our women being raped, abused sexually," The President said. About Filipino domestic helpers, he said: "If you are working on a family and the employer's sibling doesn't have a helper, you will also work for them. And if in a compound,the son-in-law of the employer is also living in there, you will also work for him.So, they would finish their work on sunrise." He even refer to the OFWs being similar to the African slaves because of the situation that they have been into for the sake of their families back home. Citing instances that some of them, out of deep despair, resorted to ending their own lives. The President also said that he finds it heartbreaking to know that after all the sacrifices of the OFWs working abroad for the future of their families they would come home just to learn that their children has been into illegal drugs. "I made no bones about my hatred. I said, 'If you do drugs in my city, if you destroy our daughters and sons, I'll just have to kill you.' I repeated the same warning when i became president," he said. Critics of the so-called violent war on drugs under President Duterte's administration includes local and international human rights groups, linking the campaign on thousands of drug-related killings. Police figures show that legitimate police operations have led to over 2,600 deaths of individuals involved in drugs since the war on drugs began. However, the war on drugs has been evident that the extent of drug menace should be taken seriously. The drug personalities includes high ranking officials and they thrive in the expense of our own children,if not being into drugs, being victimized by drug related crimes. The campaign on illegal drugs has somehow made a statement among the drug pushers and addicts. If the common citizen fear walking on the streets at night worrying about the drug addicts lurking in the dark, now they can walk peacefully while the drug addicts hide in fear that the police authorities might get them.

Cases of kidney failures in the Philippines are rising  and patients suffering from the disease need to undergo dialysis treatment. The problem is, the treatments cost a lot. Sadly, not every Filipino could afford it especially those who live in rural areas and  those who belong to the urban poor.  A bill requiring all government hospitals to provide free dialysis treatment to underprivileged and poor patients has been proposed in the senate by Senator Sonny Angara.   Senate Bill 1329 or the proposed Dialysis Center Act, authored by Angara,  said the measure is in line with the government’s efforts “to reform the health sector and provide Filipinos with comprehensive health services.” The Senator noted that poor patients suffering from kidney ailment who are in the provinces could not afford the expenses of traveling all the way to the cities to seek dialysis treatment and to pay for the treatment itself.  He also cited that some people ,due to their poverty, are dying without even being given the chance to undergo a dialysis treatment because they could not afford to pay for it.      DOH figures does not include all of those who are suffering from kidney failures. It only include those who were not able to undergo dialysis due to lack of financial ability and the inaccessible proximity of available dialysis centers in rural areas.   If this proposal would materialize sooner, a new ray of hope would shine to the faces of the poor Filipinos. They could have the gift of a longer life, enough for them to enjoy the company of their loved ones a few days more.          RECOMMENDED: Poor PGH Patients to Benefit From P100Million Funds From President Rodrigo Duterte Known to be a President with a soft spot for the  poor and those who are in the lace of society, President Rodrigo Duterte has once again proved it when he allocated P100 million to fund the hospitalization of the poor patients at the state-owned Philippine General Hospital (PGH).

According to Secretary Bello, they are also working on the unpaid claims of the OFWs and they are only validating it in order to establish their claims. If they are all been verified, OWWA will be paying their money claims in advance. President Duterte will also be visiting Bahrain and Qatar after his visit to Saudi Arabia and is expected to be back in the Philippines on April 17. Recommended: "They've been given the clearance. I will fly them home. When I return, I'll be bringing some of them home, " he said during a pre-departure press briefing in Davao City. Reports saying that the Embassy officials in Saudi Arabia have been acting slow with regards to helping stranded and runaway OFWs are not entirely correct according to Philippine Consul General Iric Arribas. He also said that the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh and the philippine Consulate in Jeddah are both providing the OFWs all the help they need which includes repatriation as well. 700 OFWs have been in jails in Saudi Arabia for various charges because there are no assistance coming from the Embassy officials, according to the reports from various OFW advocates. The OFWs are the reason why President Rodrigo Duterte is pushing through with the campaign on illegal drugs, acknowledging their hardships and sacrifices. He said that as he visit the countries where there are OFWs, he has heard sad stories about them: sexually abused Filipinas,domestic helpers being forced to work on a number of employers. "I have been to many places. I have been to the Middle East. You know, the husband is working in one place, the wife in another country. The so many sad stories I hear about our women being raped, abused sexually," The President said. About Filipino domestic helpers, he said: "If you are working on a family and the employer's sibling doesn't have a helper, you will also work for them. And if in a compound,the son-in-law of the employer is also living in there, you will also work for him.So, they would finish their work on sunrise." He even refer to the OFWs being similar to the African slaves because of the situation that they have been into for the sake of their families back home. Citing instances that some of them, out of deep despair, resorted to ending their own lives. The President also said that he finds it heartbreaking to know that after all the sacrifices of the OFWs working abroad for the future of their families they would come home just to learn that their children has been into illegal drugs. "I made no bones about my hatred. I said, 'If you do drugs in my city, if you destroy our daughters and sons, I'll just have to kill you.' I repeated the same warning when i became president," he said. Critics of the so-called violent war on drugs under President Duterte's administration includes local and international human rights groups, linking the campaign on thousands of drug-related killings. Police figures show that legitimate police operations have led to over 2,600 deaths of individuals involved in drugs since the war on drugs began. However, the war on drugs has been evident that the extent of drug menace should be taken seriously. The drug personalities includes high ranking officials and they thrive in the expense of our own children,if not being into drugs, being victimized by drug related crimes. The campaign on illegal drugs has somehow made a statement among the drug pushers and addicts. If the common citizen fear walking on the streets at night worrying about the drug addicts lurking in the dark, now they can walk peacefully while the drug addicts hide in fear that the police authorities might get them.

Cases of kidney failures in the Philippines are rising  and patients suffering from the disease need to undergo dialysis treatment. The problem is, the treatments cost a lot. Sadly, not every Filipino could afford it especially those who live in rural areas and  those who belong to the urban poor.  A bill requiring all government hospitals to provide free dialysis treatment to underprivileged and poor patients has been proposed in the senate by Senator Sonny Angara.   Senate Bill 1329 or the proposed Dialysis Center Act, authored by Angara,  said the measure is in line with the government’s efforts “to reform the health sector and provide Filipinos with comprehensive health services.” The Senator noted that poor patients suffering from kidney ailment who are in the provinces could not afford the expenses of traveling all the way to the cities to seek dialysis treatment and to pay for the treatment itself.  He also cited that some people ,due to their poverty, are dying without even being given the chance to undergo a dialysis treatment because they could not afford to pay for it.      DOH figures does not include all of those who are suffering from kidney failures. It only include those who were not able to undergo dialysis due to lack of financial ability and the inaccessible proximity of available dialysis centers in rural areas.   If this proposal would materialize sooner, a new ray of hope would shine to the faces of the poor Filipinos. They could have the gift of a longer life, enough for them to enjoy the company of their loved ones a few days more.          RECOMMENDED: Poor PGH Patients to Benefit From P100Million Funds From President Rodrigo Duterte Known to be a President with a soft spot for the  poor and those who are in the lace of society, President Rodrigo Duterte has once again proved it when he allocated P100 million to fund the hospitalization of the poor patients at the state-owned Philippine General Hospital (PGH). The President turned over the check to PGH Director Dr. Gerardo Legaspi during a meeting in Malacañang on March 7, 2017.   In a statement released by Radio Television  Network Malacañang, it says that the said fund will be allocated for the underprivileged patients who cannot afford medical procedures and treatments.      The President has shown his soft spot for the poor after giving P2 billion from PAGCOR, to  the Department of Health  to be used for   the free medical assistance to the public.  Present during the meeting with the President were PGH Director Gerardo Legazpi,  Dr. Ireneo Quiron of the PGH Fiscal Services, Deputy Executive Secretary for Finance and Administration Rizalina Justol, and Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Christopher ‘Bong’ Go.

Cases of kidney failures in the Philippines are rising  and patients suffering from the disease need to undergo dialysis treatment. The problem is, the treatments cost a lot. Sadly, not every Filipino could afford it especially those who live in rural areas and  those who belong to the urban poor.  A bill requiring all government hospitals to provide free dialysis treatment to underprivileged and poor patients has been proposed in the senate by Senator Sonny Angara.   Senate Bill 1329 or the proposed Dialysis Center Act, authored by Angara,  said the measure is in line with the government’s efforts “to reform the health sector and provide Filipinos with comprehensive health services.” The Senator noted that poor patients suffering from kidney ailment who are in the provinces could not afford the expenses of traveling all the way to the cities to seek dialysis treatment and to pay for the treatment itself.  He also cited that some people ,due to their poverty, are dying without even being given the chance to undergo a dialysis treatment because they could not afford to pay for it.      DOH figures does not include all of those who are suffering from kidney failures. It only include those who were not able to undergo dialysis due to lack of financial ability and the inaccessible proximity of available dialysis centers in rural areas.   If this proposal would materialize sooner, a new ray of hope would shine to the faces of the poor Filipinos. They could have the gift of a longer life, enough for them to enjoy the company of their loved ones a few days more.
