Quezon brings maintenance medicine services to District 3
Quezon City residents from District 3 had the opportunity to access the Quezon City Maintenance Medicine Program on March 24, 2023, as services were brought to them through a services caravan held at the Brgy. White Plains Covered Court.
The Quezon City Maintenance Medicine Program aims to provide essential maintenance medicines to patients with chronic diseases, such as hypertension and diabetes, at no cost. Through the program, patients can receive their medications for free, thus alleviating the financial burden that often comes with the cost of medicines.
The services caravan was made possible through the efforts of the Office of the City Mayor, Office for the Senior Citizens' Affairs, and Quezon City Health Department, who have been working tirelessly to bring essential health services closer to the communities.
This is a welcome development for residents, especially for those who are unable to regularly visit hospitals or health centers due to mobility issues or distance. By bringing the services to the communities, it helps ensure that everyone has access to basic healthcare services and can receive the necessary treatment they need to manage their chronic conditions.
For those who were unable to attend the services caravan in District 3, the program will continue to roll out across other districts in Quezon City. Interested residents can follow their respective District Action Offices' Facebook pages to stay updated on the program's schedule and location.
The Quezon City Maintenance Medicine Program is just one of the many initiatives of the city government in ensuring that its residents receive adequate and accessible healthcare services. The city government continues to prioritize health programs and initiatives that cater to the needs of its constituents.
