PRIVATIZATION OF 72 STATE HOSPITALS INJUSTICE – ILAGAN

0

The looming privatization of 72 government hospitals is injustice to the people, opposition lawmakers Reps. Luzviminda Ilagan of Gabriela and Jonathan dela Cruz of Abakada party-list said on Monday. “The DOH is mandated to ensure the health of the Filipino people through accessible, if not free, healthcare services. Unfortunately, its track is to privatize public hospitals in the guise of modernization. This is injustice to our citizens especially to those living in urban and rural poor communities,” Ilagan said, referring to the Department of Health. Ilagan lamented that the Philippine Orthopedic Center has been first in the list up for privatization and that Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital—the only public maternal hospital in the country—is also set to be privatized.
