CITY OF MALOLOS – After the success of establishing the Bulacan Multi-sectoral Alliance for TB Control, the Provincial Government of Bulacan is now starting to localize and create more multi-sectoral alliances in municipal and city levels to fight the deadly tuberculosis.

During the celebration of Lung Month with the theme “STOP TB! Hanapin, Gamutin, Pagalingin” held earlier today at the Baliwag Gym, the local chief executives of Paombong, Calumpit, Plaridel, Baliwag, San Ildefonso and San Miguel and Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Community-Based TB control project in the province of Bulacan.

“Inaasahan natin na ‘di magtatagal, lahat na ng bayan at lungsod sa lalawigan ay magkaroon na ng sariling alyansa upang labanan ang TB. Sa ngayon, inuuna natin ang ikalawang distrito at sunud-sunod na po ito,” Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado said.

Meanwhile, Vice Gov. Daniel R. Fernando said that the health and welfare of Bulakenyos should always be the priority in the community.

“Sana po ay mahimok natin ang lahat ng sektor ng pamahalaang lokal gayundin ang pribado upang makipagtulungan sa pagpapatupad ng programang ito. Ang kagalingan ng mga maysakit ay dapat laging nasa prayoridad ng lipunan, maging adbokasiya po sana natin lagi ang pagkakaroon ng malusog na pamayanan dahil ito ang susi sa pagkakaroon ng maunlad na bayan,” Fernando said.

The said event is in cooperation with the municipality of Baliwag headed by Mayor Carolina Dellosa, Municipal Health Officers of the six towns, Research Institute of Tuberculosis – Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association Philippines, Inc. or the RIT-JATA Inc. through their representatives, Deputy Executive Director Aurora Querri and Dr. Jojo Cangao and Dr. Ezra Rostrata from the United States Agency for International Development-Innovations and Multi-sectoral Partnerships to Achieve Control of Tuberculosis (USAID-IMPACT).
