The newly rehabilitated rural health units (RHUs) in the municipalities of Sagñay, Camarines Sur, and Trinidad, Bohol, have recently been turned over by BDO Foundation (BDOF) and are expected to expand accessibility to the medical needs of affected communities.
With these initiatives completed, nearly 40 barangays and over 70,000 people will access primary and maternal care, including consultation, laboratory and dental services, family planning, immunization, pre- and post-natal services, and tuberculosis treatment.
According to the BDO Foundation, the rehabilitation efforts on the RHUs focused on refurbishing and upgrading the facilities and waiting areas, play areas for kids, offices, clinics, consultation
s rooms, and treatment rooms. These improvements seek to elevate the standard of healthcare delivery and positively impact the lives of individuals relying on RHUs for medical assistance.
“Our commitment to improving RHUs remains at the core of our mission to help uplift the lives of the communities,” said BDOF president Mario A. Deriquito.
To date, the BDO Foundation has already rehabilitated160 RHUs since it started to improve healthcare facilities and access in different communities of the country in 2012.
