Health stakeholders in public and private sectors in the Province of La Union come together to make health services more accessible to the people.

Local Government Units (LGUs) in La Union have partnered with various private organizations to improve health governance through the project called “Model Active Network of Health Providers, United to Build Enduring PPP in La Union”, or aptly, the Project MANUEL.

Named after Gov. Manuel C. Ortega, the project is a local counterpart of the PRISM2 (Private Sector Mobilization for Family Health Project- Phase 2), a USAID-funded national project that aims to assist the Department of Health (DOH) and the LGUs engage and mobilize private sector resources in the delivery of family planning and maternal and child health services and products.

Project MANUEL, which took off in 2010, comes into fruition this year. The accomplishment highlights of the four-year project were presented during the Handover Meeting on July 22, 2014 at Hotel Ariana, Bauang, La Union.

Through the project, more than 4,000 women and men were given family planning and reproductive health counseling. These happened in the 20 rural health units, four birthing homes, and two academe-partners that have been mobilized through the project.

Volunteerism in the Province of La Union got a shot in the arm as a strategy to further contribute to national development and international understanding as Gov. Manuel C. Ortega signed recently Executive Order (EO) No. 02, series of 2014, which implements the Volunteer and Citizenship Program (VCP).

The EO also mandated the creation of the VCP Team and designation of a focal person as well as establishment of volunteer and citizenship desk in the province.

This is in line with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Memorandum Circular reviving volunteerism down to LGU levels.

The Local Chief Executive noted in the EO that volunteerism or “bayanihan” is a good practice, principle and tradition that had always invigorated and harmonized social relations of both public and private organizations and even nations. It also fosters social justice, solidarity, and sustainable development, as well as enhances good governance at the local and community levels by mobilizing and harnessing human resources to achieve organizational goals and objectives.
