DOH RO XI UNVEILS NEW LOGO


The new DOH Regional Office (RO) XI Logo depicts the map of Davao Region surrounded by six (6) stars. These stars represent the areas being served- namely the provinces of Compostela Valley, Davao Del Norte, Davao Occidental, Davao del Oriental, and Davao del Sur; plus the highly urbanized City of Davao.

Dominating the logo is a human figure with its head crowned with the rays of the sun and adorned with laurel leaves, its arms outstretched towards a figure of a child. At a glance, these two figures can be seen as the Roman Numerals “XI”. These figures symbolize Region XI.

The human figure with the child signifies RO XI’s priority for public health programs, especially for vulnerable groups such as women and children. The rays of the sun stand for the eighteen (18) ethnic groups that inhabit the region, while the laurel leaves denote excellence in implementing the public health programs.

A logo of the Department of Health (DOH) is superimposed within, indicating that the RO XI is also serving as an arm of the DOH in its mandates and functions.1958 refers to the year the regional office was established by virtue of EO 288.

The new logo was inspired by RD Abdullah B. Dumama Jr., who believed that it’s high time to make a distinctive logo for DOH RO XI. Thus, after a concerted effort of the entire staff of RO XI, this logo was finally conceptualized with its design. The new logo was unveiled by RD Dumama and ARD Yumang during the Management Review Meeting on April 14, 2014. LHSD/HEPS/hrchechanova


SEMINAR ON BARANGAY HEALTH LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM FOR DOH REPRESENTATIVES AND MUNICIPAL HEALTH OFFICERS AS FACILITATORS
The Seminar on Barangay Health Leadership and Management Program (BHLMP) for DOH Representatives and MHOs as Facilitators was conducted last April 9-11, 2014 at the Marco Polo Hotel, Davao City. This was attended by 18 DOH Representatives and 18 MHOs of several LGUs who had undergone MLGP.

The BHLMP is under Community Participation and Health-Seeking Behavior Component of the Health Leadership and Governance Program (HLGP). It is aimed at developing technical and leadership capabilities of public health professionals, health volunteers, and community residents to give them knowledge and skills necessary to ensure the delivery of quality health services down to the barangay level. This program is strategically followed after the Municipal Leadership and Governance Program (MLGP) to harmonize leadership and management strategies from the municipal-level down to the barangays. This would harmonize priorities and action plans at both levels.

The seminar shall equip the DOH Representatives and Municipal Health Officers as the facilitators of the BHLMP. These participants having undergone MLGP Module I and pledged Bridging Leaders are well-enforced on the objectives and strategies of the program. They are the identified facilitators being part of the CHT Management Group and Local/Barangay Health Board. LHSD/LHSDU/mtpteengfo


2ND BUNTIS CONGRESS HELD

Villafuerte, MD, along with other partners (MindanaoHealth/JHPIEGO, PhilHealth, JCI, DMSF, Barangay Captains, City Health Office, Councilor Bernard Al-ag, MD) are working hand-in-hand to promote safe childbirth and good health for both mother and child.

Thus, the 2nd Buntis Congress was recently conducted in three batches: March 14, 2014 at Gaisano Grand Mall, Toril, April 3, 2014 at Calinan Gym, Calinan District and April 4, 2014 at Mintal Gym, Tugbok District.

The activity aims to ensure that pregnant women are informed and made aware of how to take care of their health and the health of their babies. The mothers were imparted with important lessons such as the importance of PhilHealth membership, completion of 4 pre-natal visits, preparedness on who to be with, where to go, and what to bring on their expected date of delivery.

RD Abdullah B. Dumama, Jr. gave his inspirational message to the mothers and emphasized the beauty of being a well-informed mother. He also shared the benefits of a well-planned pregnancy, membership to PhilHealth, preparedness on childbearing, facility-based delivery, and exclusive breastfeeding.

It is hoped that with this activity, the number of maternal and infant deaths will be reduced, and that the health-seeking behavior of pregnant women in District 3 (Tugbok, Calinan, Marilog, Baguio, Toril districts) will be improved as well. LHSD/LHS/mtteengfo


COMPETENCY-BASED TRAINING ON ALL NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING METHODS
The first batch of the Competency-Based Training on Natural Family Planning (NFP) Methods was conducted last March 18-21, 2014 at Marco Polo Hotel, Davao City. This was attended by selected Public Health Nurses and Rural Health Midwives from different cities and municipalities of Davao Region. The training aimed to bridge the gap between NFP providers and couples who wanted to use NFP as a means of planning their families may it be for birth spacing or for achieving pregnancy.

Previously trained NFP providers were invited to act as resource speakers and facilitators during the training. They shared their expertise and strategies in the successful implementation of NFP in their respective areas of responsibility.

As a form of Competency-Based Training, the participants will undergo Post Training Evaluation (PTE) before being issued the Certificate of Training to ensure the competencies of the trained providers in counselling clients with the different methods of NFP. Each province will select their own pool of evaluators/ assessors to conduct the PTE 3-6 months after the training. LHSD/NFP/djscaparida


ARMM-TISP PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION REVIEW
The Department of Health (DOH) Regional Office 11 hosted a Project Implementation Review last March 21, 2014 at the Marco Polo Hotel, Davao City. This was attended by officials and staff of the DOH Central Office, Regional Offices, and DOH-Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) led by Undersecretary Nemesio T. Gako and DOH-ARMM Health Secretary Kadil M. Sinolinding Jr.

The ARMM Transition Investment Support Plan (ARMM-TISP) was conceptualized to show DOH’s commitment to the development of ARMM based on the principle that health is necessary for development. The objectives of ARMM-TISP are: to make health care more accessible through the construction and rehabilitation of selected Barangay Health Stations (BHSs), Rural Health Units (RHUs) and hospitals and the provision of essential medical equipment; and to facilitate easy and prompt referral of serious cases through the provision of land and sea ambulances. The project, which started in 2011 is expected to end on June 30, 2014.

The said activity was conducted to review and monitor the project implementation, its status and accomplishments, as well as to address issues and concerns by recommending solutions to further improve coordination and facilitation of the project.LHSD/HEPS/hrchechanova


SEMINAR ON THE PROCUREMENT LAW PURSUANT TO R.A. 9184
Delivery of equitable. accessible, and quality health care services to our citizens is the main point of the DOH Mission-Vision in relation to good governance. Understanding R.A. 9184, otherwise known as the “Government Procurement Reform Act” is a key factor for attaining this.

In line with this, the office conducted a Seminar on Procurement Law in order to equip, not only the Procurement Unit personnel, but also Program Managers, Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) Officers, Technical Working Group (TWG) and Inspectorate Committee for various categories, and others involved in the procurement processes and procedures on March 10, 2014 at Marco Polo Hotel, Davao City.

The guest speaker, Atty. Lawrence P. Villanueva, is a Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) accredited expert and DOH-Central Office Consultant who spoke on salient provisions of R.A. 9184 and its Implementing Rules & Regulations (IRR), Philippine Bidding Documents (PBD), and other related GPPB issuances. He even included in his discussion some key doctrines laid down by the Supreme Court particularly the Arias, Cruz, and Mison doctrines which involve the responsibilities and liabilities of the Head of Procuring Entity (HOPE) and other personnel involved in the procurement procedures and processes.

Said activity transferred vital knowledge, information, techniques and other troubleshooting aspects to the participants, which are very useful in the performance of their crucial tasks in the aspect of procurement at the DOH-Center for Health Development-Davao Region. MSD/procurement/rcp-bingrez


MUNICIPAL LEADERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE PROGRAM: MODULE 1
DOH RO XI, together with our partners – Davao Medical School Foundation – Institute of Primary Health Care (DMSF-IPHC) and Zuellig Family Foundation (ZFF) have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to implement the Health Leadership and Governance Program. This aims to improve health outcomes through strengthened leadership and governance, enhanced local health systems, and increased community participation, and health-seeking behavior.

The Municipal Leadership and Governance Program (MLGP) is a one-year, 2-module leadership program for mayors and municipal health officers (MHO), with training and coaching on local health systems development focusing on: Good governance in the health sector; Healthcare financing; Access to essential medicines; Health Human Resources; Health Information; and Health Service Delivery. The program aims to empower municipal leaders such that they are able to transform their local health systems and make health programs and services work for the community, especially the poor.

“I’M A LIFELINE” NATIONAL REGISTRATION OF ORGAN DONORS
Davaoeños aged 18 years old and above, converged last February 28, 2014 from 9 AM to 5 PM at the Almendras Gym, in a bid to obtain the Guinness World Record for registering the most number of people to sign up as organ donors. This event under the ‘I am a LifeLine” campaign was organized by the Department of Health, in partnership with the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) and in coordination with the Davao City Local Government Unit.

Davao City was the lone site outside Luzon and one of the six sites in the entire country that was chosen to take part in this activity. The Philippines is attempting to break the current record of Gudjarat, India of 10,450 organ donor registrants last year for the multiple site category, and also for the one-hour single site registration record of 2,755 organ donors, set by Rohtak Haryana in India last year.

At the end of one hour, Davao City was able to contribute 944 ‘LifeLiners” or registered organ donors to the total of 10,120 nationwide. For the multiple sites category, Davao City had 1,941 Lifeliners to the nationwide total of 17,816. This record would have to be validated by Guinness and results are expected in three weeks to three months.

This nationwide registration was done to positively promote organ donation. More than an attempt to break a record, it is sharing a part of us so that ailing Filipinos who need organ transplantation may live. LHSD/HEPS/hrchechanova

RD Dumama gave tips on 2 important “buttons” of the technical roadmap – Expanded and Functional Local Health Board and 15% IRA LGU Budget for Health - to achieve, in order to influence the improvement of the rest of the indicators in the roadmap.

RD Dumama and the panel strategically convinced the Mayors to publicly express commitment to the program to embed a deeper challenge to their declaration which was followed by the signing of “Declaration of Applicant”.

All the LGUs that were able to present and express commitment were recommended to attend the Municipal Leadership and Governance Program Module 1 on March 4-7, 2014.LHSD/LHS/mtteengfo
