Wow! This is just amazing. Unfortunately, I only knew about this but thanks to MIMS community, I learnt something new today. :) I just hope that the government will continue to work on projects like these and with the current leadership of President Duterte, I am hopeful that we will be seeing more improvements. We may not be ble to eradicate corruption in total but as long as we can see that the tax we're paying goes into something good, then that's progress. Going back to the article, ...

Kathleen Peralta I am proud to say that the institution where I work is the bright spot of the government hospitals. Our hospital caters only to retired soldiers and their dependents (legal wife, of course) and active and retired hospital employees. The retired soldiers will first have to register with the proof of retirement and military service of at least 5 years. Then, they will be able to obtain a card which...

Marinelle Castro It is only fitting that teachers will get free medical service. Just like soldiers, they have been fighting for our freedom too- freedom from illiteracy. That is a great proposal to give healthcare to people with high occupational hazards. I think we have to put emphasis on giving free care to those who work hard for our nation's produce such as the farmers and fishermen. I spent my summers w...

I apologise if you were left with the impression that I am not happy or objecting to this proposed bill. Anything that can help our fellow countrymen is good especially that it focuses on health. All I am hoping is that the government would widen its scope so more people/ working professionals will benefit from this proposition. As you have said, each worker are exposed to different health risks and are more prone to a particular disease compared to others so hopefully, the care and management ...

I think that this is a good proposal by the past president, and like Mark Edmon Tan I have no objections. However, this article made me think of jobs that have a lot of occupational hazards. I think that apart from teachers, perhaps the local government should also come up with a similar healthcare facility for professions that are prone to contracting certain forms of illness. For example, local garbage collect...

I have nothing against this proposed project because the working force are more exposed to different diseases and are more prone to encounter accidents than those who just work from home. A hospital that caters to specific professionals could be also more specialized in terms of the diseases frequently encountered by this group. For example, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition encountered by typists and those with desk jobs. This proposed hospital could have an in-house orthopedic hand ...

Kathleen Peralta Yea right, feel a little bit frustrated but on the other hand it would also help other people especially the teachers though. The common condition teachers are experiencing are all included with us nurses too. I hope this hospital that will soon operate will cater those who are in need the most, most especially in far flung areas which I believe are greatly in need. As far as I know, seamans has ...

Upon reading the title of the article, I felt a bit of frustration as to why it is only for teachers. But as I read through the article that other professionals will be caterd for as well. If we look at it, everyone's health is at risk, whether you are a teacher, a nurse or a jeepney driver. It is definitely going to be beneficial to those professionals and their families who is included in the bill. What about the others? Healthcare in the Philippines is definitely an issue and financially ...
