In a bid to more efficiently implement the Universal Health Care Law, Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto on Tuesday said he would strengthen city barangay centers.

“We want to be partners with the Department of Health in implementing the Universal Health Care Law in our city. One of the most important actions we can do is to strengthen our barangay health centers,” Sotto said.

The mayor pointed out the importance of primary health care in addressing the concerns of Pasig residents before going straight to the hospital.

“I was talking to Health Secretary Francisco Duque about the importance of strong barangay health centers to strengthen the city’s primary health care services. Before going to the hospital, before any sickness becomes worse, these concerns should already have been addressed at the barangay health center,” he said.

Among those that Sotto wanted to improve were the presence of health care staff, doctors, nurses, and medications at barangay health centers.
