DOH MIMAROPA cares for the differently-abled in Marinduque;
BEING one of the differently-abled citizen in a country like the Philippines is truly difficult. Aside from regularly coping up with the hurdles of everyday living, the usual discrimination faced by a differently-abled individual keeps getting harder each day.
Spearheaded not by the entire Philippine Department of Health instead by the Department of Health’s Regional branch in the scattered islands of Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan (DOH MIMAROPA) in Region 4B and lead by its dedicated and service oriented Regional Director Dr. Eduardo C. Janairo Jr., scores of differently-abled constituency in Marinduque converged near the Provincial Hospital adjacent to the provincial capitol building in the town of Boac held a short program recently in an effort to give due consideration and recognition to the potent contributions of differently-abled citizens of the town and of the province.
Individuals with problems on mobility, people with cerebral palsy, blind, deaf and mute children in particular with their parents and guardians meet and greet each other along with elderly differently-abled citizens shared common stories of hope in a province tagged as the “forgotten land” for most residents who felt that the central government in Manila neglected them with whom programs and projects of the national government concerning health doesn’t trickle down to the grass root level.
Even the local government unit of Marinduque admits that only Dr. Janairo is the DOH’s regional director which is “hands on” in assuring that health programs and projects are truly distributed up to the far reaches part of the islands, particularly in their province with is ideally situated in the “heart of the Philippines”.
Dr. Janairo regularly visits the islands and monitors personally the developments of the departments health programs and projects especially on public health and in relation to tropical diseases.///Mary Jane Olvina-Balaguer
