I

n line with the celebration of the 11th Development Policy Research Month this September, the Philippine Institute for Development Studies and the Philippine Information Agency is set to conduct a Forum on Making Health More Inclusive in a Growing Economy” on September 27, 2013 at Ocho Seafoods Restaurant in Tacloban City. This year’s theme highlights the need to address a critical socioeconomic inequity in the Philippines, the lack of inclusiveness of the economic growth in the aspect of health. Despite a booming economy, large disparities persist in the overall health indicators between the richest and the poorest Filipino households. This may be attributed to a number of issues, including institutional inefficiencies and gaps in coverage, making health all the more less inclusive in the Philippines.

BIR has also directed district officers to impose a P1, 000 penalty on those who apply for an authority to print receipts after April 30. The new regulation requires businesses and professionals to surrender unused official receipts and other commercial invoices by August 30. She added that the establishments and individuals are also to issue new receipts and invoices that are printed only by accredited printers of the BIR. An authority to print from the BIR is required to have such documents printed. Revenue Memorandum Order 44-2013 gives extension on the deadline on the use of old receipts until August 30, to give time for businesses to have their new receipts printed by BIR-accredited printers. In a new Revenue Memorandum Circular Number 52-2013 dated Aug. 15, BIR stressed that enterprises can still use their old receipts on two conditions. ne condition is that the printing of the old receipts should be covered by an authority to print issued by the BIR on or after Jan. 1, 2011, which means receipts covered by Authority To Print (ATP) older than that date will no longer be valid starting Aug. 31 and another condition is that businesses should already have an authority to print new receipts from the BIR on or before Aug. 30. BIR emphasized that enterprises that could not meet the two conditions will be required to use a new set of receipts starting Aug. 31. (PIA 8- Samar Avha H. Ebalde)

I

n line with its effort to inform the public of its advocacies and programs, the regional Department of Health is conducting a Consultative Workshop for Health Education Officers (HEPO) for three days from September 24-26, this year, at the Leyte Park Hotel, this city. Dr. Ma. Sol Villones, DOH health promotion section head, disclosed that the activity is a venue where the programs and advocacies of the health department can be presented to the HEPOs as its main role is to disseminate the information to the people and other workers in the institution or community of origin. The health official also said the gathering of the HEPOs from around the region will ventilate the officers concerns and problems encountered relative to their work so the DOH could plan for specific actions to take. The three-day activities lined up by DOH are updates on DOH’s health programs on dengue control, newborn screening, pneumococcal and flu vaccines for senior citizens and presentation of Health Promotion Monitoring Tools, to mention some. Around 70 participants from public and private hospitals across the region are in attendance of the event. Dr. Villones informed that previously, only HEPOs from public hospitals were participants of the workshop but DOH extended participation of the private hospitals to ensure the successful implementation of the programs. She hopes for the success of the health programs through the HEPOs for the people to become aware on the difference on illness and wellness. (PIA-8)

he Civil Service Commission (CSC), Field Office spearheaded the mass blood letting in coordination with the Provincial Government of Eastern Samar through Provincial Health Office (PHO) and the Provincial Council on Human Resource Management Practitioners of E. Samar, Inc. (PCHRMP-E. Samar). This was on September 25, 2013 at the Provincial Gymnasium, Capitol site this City. This activity was in line with the celebration of 113th Philippine Civil Service Commission Anniversary with the theme “Dugo Ko, Kinabuhi Mo”. According to Atty. Rey Albert B. Uy, Provincial Director of CSC, Field Office, Borongan, the blood letting aimed to contribute to the Blood Bank by encouraging government employees to donate blood. “Blood is life, and there is no other manufacturer of human blood except human body”, Uy said. “There is always a need for blood supply to save lives”, he added. Meanwhile, some personnel of the Eastern Samar Police Provincial Office (ESPPO) led by Police Senior Inspector Cirilo R. Nicart, Jr. with the members

of the Borongan City Police Station (BCPS), Bureau of Jail, Management and Penology (BJMP) , Philippine Army (PA) and the Army Reserve personnel, and employees of the provincial government participated the activity. Ms. Guadalupe Cuna, Medical Technologist II of PHO being the Blood Coordinator, said that some 57 bags of blood were donated, 20 of these will be stored in ESPHO and 37 will be brought to EVRMC, Tacloban City, because there are patients from Eastern Samar who need blood especially in some surgical operations. Cuna added, that the demand for an adequate supply of blood every year is for the treatment of Dengue, injuries, Cancer, Leukemia, Hemophilia and other surgical operations. Five medical technologists assisted in the blood letting while two doctors and several nurses from ESPHO interviewed the donors and checked their blood pressure before blood were extracted from the donors.

NFA Samar marks 41st anniversary with simple celebration

T

he National Food Authority (NFA) Samar marks its 41st anniversary with a simple celebration. The 32-strong NFA Samar workforce led by Manager Francisca Mercado attended a thanksgiving mass early at the San Bartholome Church to start the day. Mercado said they have prepared some snacks at their office located in the Capitol Site, Catbalogan City for well wishers. They will also be having a get together lunch with the Grains Community-a group of rice retailers and traders. She added that NFA employees opted to donate to Zamboanga the fund they will use for any lavish celebration. Today, housewives and housekeepers while doing marketing will see some of the NFA employees assisting licensed rice retailers in selling the affordable NFA rice-the first to be sold out these days as the commercial rice are priced higher. Pots of Arroz Caldo with Iron Fortified Rice are prepared for 340 school

children of New Mahayag Elementary School, added Mercado. Socorro Gacelos, a teacher in New Mahayag testifies that this is the nth time that NFA is feeding their school children every anniversary. “The schedule varies every time, but NFA never forgets the poor kids in New Mahayag,” said teacher Gacelos. NFA was formerly known as National Grains Authority (NGA) and was created by Decree # 4 on September 26, 1972. Its mission is to oversee the growth and development of the grains industry. NFA according to its website has done massive facility build-up composed of modern post-harvest and warehousing facilities, driers, rice mills, buying stations and grains centers. It also links with farmer organizations and cooperatives and has become a staunch advocate of the government’s food fortification law. NFA to its rice consumer patrons always say,” We are in every grain of rice.” (PIA 8-Samar)

he Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Eastern Visayas will launch next week “Bawal ang Epal Dito” (BAED) campaign in Eastern Visayas. Michele Calzado, DSWD social marketing officer of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps)/information officer revealed the information saying the campaign is being implemented in time for the coming barangay election this October 28 for beneficiaries of the 4Ps to ensure the group will not be used by candidates in the election. It was learned the BAED campaign is being strengthened because of incidents in the midterm election where the conditional cash transfer (CCT) program was used in partisan politics. There were reports on instances where beneficiaries of the 4Ps were told to fill up forms with pictures of the President to entice them to vote for the politician as well as announcements of beneficiaries who will be delisted should they not vote for the favoured candidate. The DSWD official informed the BAED campaign is in coordination with the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). The three government offices signed a memorandum of agreement in the implementation of the program and guidelines for the participating agencies will soon be out. Monitoring mechanisms for violations in the campaign and prosecution of violators are delineated in the guidelines. (PIA-8)

ESamar Medical Society tells folks to modify lifestyles to prevent diseases

D

r. Gondelyn S. Cidro, member of the local Medical Society here shared that she has noted of a number of province mates who are now undergoing Dialysis due to diseases in their Kidney that are commonly caused unhealthy lifestyles. Each Dialysis she said costs more or less P5,000.00, which must be done three times a week. “This is quite expensive even for a professional medical doctor like me”, she stressed. “Thus, people nowadays should increase their health consciousness and practice healthy habits, to avoid health problems and even pains in the pocket. According to Dr. Cidro, heavy weight people should change their lifestyles through an intensive diet management program and physical exercise in order to reduce their weight, adding that obesity usually contributes to Hypertension and increase risk in Cancer, Gallstones, Diabetes and Heart Disease among others. Obesity in a person, she said occurs when there is an excess in food intake while the energy spent is less.

Managing weight loss includes: Diet Therapy, Physical Activity and Behavioral Therapy. It is important for obese persons she said, to reduce their abdominal fats and increase the fitness of their heart. She suggested for a 30 to 40 minutes physical exercise, three times a week. Likewise, she added, that food preparation counts very much and, it is best to eat at home than in food chains and burger stalls, the lady physician suggested further. Dr. Cidro shared these insights, during the Lay Fora held at the Provincial Gym, September 25, on the occasion of the Medicine Week Celebration which was spearheaded by the medical doctors, led by their President, Dr. Benedicto Garcia. On September 26, the third day of the Medicine Week celebration, the Medical Society offered free Blood Screening for Cholesterol and Sugar levels and Body Mass Index(BMI) examination and many of the results showed elevated Cholesterol levels among government employees.

South Leyte, 3 N. Samar towns to be nominated as rabies-free LGUs for 2014

A

fter the feat that were achieved by Biliran province and Limasawa town as rabies-free LGUs in 2012 in the country , this early , four other local government units (LGUs) are to be nominated for the award in 2014. This was revealed by Dr. Norieta Ursua, Eastern Visayas regional rabies control program coordinator during the meeting of the Biliran provincial rabies prevention and control committee (PRPCC) held at the Biliran provincial hospital conference room onTuesday, September 24, 2013. Ursua informed that based on the record of the four LGUs, they may

qualify to receive the award considering the history and zero incidence of rabies cases for the last two consecutive years. These LGUs may still comply with the set of requirements by the evaluation committee composed of personnel from the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Department of Health (DOH) at the regional and national level, she further said. She revealed that the strong contenders for the rabies-free award for LGUs here in Eastern Visayas for 2014 are Southern Leyte province and the towns of San Antonio, Capul and Lao-ang in Northern Samar province.

However, Ursua said that the island barangays of San Pedro and San Pablo in Hinunangan town in Southern Leyte province may receive the rabies-free award this year if they will be included for validation in December this year. These barangays will be included as a whole of Southern Leyte as rabies-free LGUs by 2014 if they will not be declared this year, Ursua further informed. She added that other provinces in Eastern Visayas like Leyte, Eastern Samar and Samar may still not qualify to be declared as rabies-free LGUs due to their recorded rabies cases this year.
