CITY OF MALOLOS – Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado led the formal enacting of the Gender and Development (GAD) and Health and Sanitation (HS) codes held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium during the Monday flag raising ceremony yesterday.

Board Member Eulogio C. Sarmiento III, chairman of the Committee on Women, Family and Social Services and Committee on Health explained the importance of the two codes and the good it will bring to Bulakeños.

“Ang GAD code ay nakatuon sa patas at pantay na pagkilala sa pagitan ng kababaihan at kalalakihan, layunin nitong siguruhin ang patas at pantay na karapatan, gayundin sa pakikilahok sa mga programang pangkaunlaran sa alinmang sangay ng pamahalaan, ” said Sarmiento.


The code also assures the cooperation of men and women in Bulacan for the true community development in accordance to the Republic Act No. 7192 article II, Section 14 also known as the Women in Development and Nation Building Act.

Meanwhile, HS code also aims to boost the protection of the environment and health of the citizen of Bulacan.

“Ito ang ilan sa mga pangunahing adhikain ng pamahalaang panlalawigan, ang masiguro ang kalusugan ng mga Bulakenyo, at mabigyan ng pantay na karapatan ang bawat mamamayan, may this be replicated and inspire other provinces na maserbisyuhan ng maayos at tapat ang kanilang mga nasasakupan,” said Alvarado.

Health Regional Director Leonita Gorgolon, the event’s guest speaker announced that the Department of Health will donate P25 million which will be used for the renovation and repair of Emilio G. Perez District Hospital.

“It’s my pleasure na makaattend at ma-invite dito kasi first time na nagkaroon ng signing ng sanitation code sa province. I would like to thank you for reviewing the national sanitation code para mas ma-implement sa inyong lalawigan,” Gorgolon said.

Also part of the event was the turn-over of 67 glucometer for the Rural Health Units in the province from the Corbridge Group Phils., Inc. headed by District Manager Jesus Emerson Magracia, , five microscopes from Philippine Shell Foundation, Inc. for the Malaria Endemic Areas including Norzagaray, San Miguel, Doña Remedios Trinidad, city of San Jose del Monte and Bulacan Medical Center. ###
