DILG PARTNERS WITH DOH TO STRENGTHEN BHERTS’ ROLE IN ENSURING ACCESS TO PUBLIC HEALTHCARE SERVICES
The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has partnered with the Department of Health (DOH) to strengthen the role of the Barangay Health Emergency Response Teams (BHERTs) in helping Filipinos navigate the public healthcare system.
 
At the national launch, DOH Secretary Francisco T. Duque III expressed his support for the initiative that expands the role of BHERTs in the community, capitalizing on the service infrastructure the department has built over the past seven months not only for effective COVID-19 response but also for universal health care (UHC).
The UHC law provides that each household must be assigned under the coverage of a barangay health emergency response team that will help them gain access to public healthcare services, including PhilHealth-covered COVID-19 services, primary care services, immunization, and consultations.
 
“While we continue to communicate the minimum public health standards and other services of our pandemic response, we cannot expect Filipinos to access services from our healthcare system on their own,” Sec. Duque said. “Through this partnership, our BHERTs will become our community navigators in promoting localized solutions and services that every Filipino can access,” he added.
 
BHERTs, initially tasked to provide immediate and appropriate emergency assistance during the pandemic, work closely with the national and local governments to implement necessary health programs and standards in, as well as disseminate protocols and updates to, their assigned households.
 
In February, DILG Secretary Eduardo Año ordered all barangay chairpersons to form BHERT teams composed of an executive officer, a barangay tanod, and two barangay health workers–either a nurse or midwife — as first-line respondents in the community to help manage all COVID-related healthcare issues.
 
As of August this year, the DOH noted 39,347 BHERTs nationwide. All the barangays in the following regions have 100 percent activated BHERTS: Region I (3,267), Region II (2,311), Region V (3,471), Region IX (1,904), Region XI (1,162), Region XII (1,195), Cordillera Administrative Region (1,176), and National Capital Region (1,709).
 
Meanwhile Region III’s 3,084 barangays have 99.42 percent activated BHERTs; Region X’s 2,014 barangays, 99.60 percent; Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao’s (BARMM) 2,581 barangays, 99 percent; Region VIII’s 4,121 barangays, 93.87 percent; Region XIII’s 1,186 barangays, 90.47 percent; and MIMAROPA’s 770 barangays, 53 percent activation
 
“Through the joint efforts of the DILG and the DOH, we can make our communities safer from COVID-19 by enabling Filipinos to take charge of their health through the help of our BHERTs,” Sec. Duque said.
 
The Health Secretary added that over the seven months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the DOH has made strides toward embracing the new normal by communicating to the public the minimum public health standards. With the help of the DILG and local chief executives, the BIDA ang may Disiplina: Solusyon sa COVID-19 movement has helped localize and disseminate these minimum public health standards in communities nationwide.

PHILHEALTH EXPEDITES 100% INCLUSION OF ALL FILIPINOS IN NHIP AS PART UHC
The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) recently gave updates on hastening the process to register all Filipinos in the National Health Insurance Program (NHIP). Under the Universal Health Care Law (UHC), all Filipino citizens are automatically eligible to avail the government’s health benefits packages.
 
President Rodrigo Duterte signed the UHC Law last February 20, 2019 to ensure that every Filipino, with the inclusion of overseas Filipino workers, has access to a comprehensive set of quality and cost-effective, promotive, preventive, curative, palliative, and rehabilitative health care, without causing financial hardship, and prioritizing those who cannot afford such services.
 
With the Universal Health Care Law (UHC), about 110 million Filipinos, based on the Philippine Statistics Authority consensus, are now eligible to receive universal healthcare. They will also be granted access to all health care services in accredited public facilities, as well as basic accommodations in accredited private health care institutions (HCI).
 
“As of August of this year, about 85.4 percent of the total Filipino population are registered members of PhilHealth,” explained Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Singh-Vergeire. She added that this is composed of 51,785,474 members as well as 42,352,559 dependents. It is the government’s objective to fully register the entire population in the NHIP, from 95 percent in 2021 to 100 percent in 2022 so that all Filipinos will have access to health services and benefits. Though not all Filipinos are registered in the PhilHealth database, they may still benefit from PhilHealth coverage at the point of service.
 
This development is in line with the provisions for a nationwide universal healthcare system that will be executed, together with the implementation of a whole-of-government, whole-of-system, whole-of-nation approach in the program.
 
Updating your PhilHealth registration
 
Filipinos who are already members of PhilHealth can update their member data record, and employers or members with financial means must keep their premiums updated.
 
PhilHealth is also committed for all Filipinos to secure their PIN (PhilHealth Identification Number) by updating their membership records, particularly for their dependents.
 
Direct contributor members will need to register and apply for PIN using the PhilHealth Member Registration Form (PMRF), declare their monthly income, and submit their supporting documents. Indirect contributor members, or those subsidized by the government, need only to register and apply for PIN; they may also need to present their certificate of financial incapability. For updating of records, both direct and indirect contributor members need to submit their PMRF as well as the required supporting documents.
 
Expanding UHC’s coverage
 
With the broadening of its coverage under the UHC Act, the health sector is mandated to provide sufficient and high-quality individual-based and population-based health services. Philhealth has accredited a combination of public and private healthcare providers who can offer sufficient and accessible individual-based health services.
 
OIC-Undersecretary Singh-Vergeire also explained the DOH efforts in implementing the UHC in the provinces and cities. She said, “DOH has contracted province and city-wide health systems with minimum components like a reliable primary health care provider network who gives free consultations and assessments. Epidemiologic Surveillance Systems monitor the status of every community and gather data on diseases like COVID-19 and polio. A proactive health promotion campaign also makes the community aware of the health protocols.”

YOUR MIND MATTERS: DOH CALLS FOR UNIFIED RESPONSE TO MENTAL HEALTH
With the pandemic having a considerable impact on global mental health, the Department of Health (DOH) today called for a unified response to improve mental health care in the country in observance of this year’s World Mental Health Day.
 
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental and behavioral disorders account for about 14% of the global burden of disease and as many as 450 million people suffer from these illnesses. The Philippine WHO Special Initiative for Mental Health conducted in the early part of 2020 shows that at least 3.6 million Filipinos suffer from one kind of mental, neurological, and substance use disorder.
 
Moreover, the pandemic has further impacted mental health in groups such as older adults, health care providers, and people with underlying health conditions.
“There is less than one mental health worker for every 100,000 Filipinos, and many are currently unable to gain access to services,” said Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III. He added that mental health is a serious matter and cannot be left unattended. There is nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to taking better care of one’s mental health, and we need to make a concerted effort at all levels if we are to help people with these conditions.
 
This year’s theme “Mental Health for All: Unifying Voices for Greater Investment and Access,” seeks to drive the conversation on some of the challenges that the mental health care system faces, such as negative perceptions and limited funding commitment. While support for mental health has gained momentum in the Philippines, Duque noted that a stronger push is needed to address the issue given the effects of the pandemic.
 
“The COVID-19 pandemic has evoked overwhelming reactions and emotions from people. Many have had their livelihoods affected, others are worried about keeping their families safe. There are many reasons why we need to take extra care now when it comes to mental health,” said Duque. “We hope that by raising more awareness on the urgency of this issue, we can inspire more commitment towards helping those in need.”
 
The United Nations policy brief on COVID-19 and the need for action on mental health states that good mental health is critical to the functioning of society at the best of times. According to Duque, improving service delivery capability and ensuring greater access both need substantial investment in terms of infrastructure, manpower, and resources.
 
The Health Secretary further noted that while the mandates provided by the Mental Health Act and the Universal Health Care Law help give the country enough leverage to ensure that mental health services will be given paramount importance, there is an urgent need for more assistance.
 
“Mental health is a human right, it’s time that mental health be made available for all. Quality, accessible primary health care is the foundation for universal health coverage and is urgently required as the world grapples with the current health emergency,” said Duque. “We need to make mental health a reality for all – for everyone, everywhere,” he stressed.
 
For this year’s observance of National Mental Health Week, various activities to promote more awareness and understanding of mental health, such as webinars and daily mental cleanse challenges, are being conducted across the Philippines as part of a collaborative effort between the government, private sector, civil society, and various other stakeholders and partners. The WHO will also launch its Quality Rights online platform, which provides comprehensive information on the rights of persons with mental health issues, so that the public can take greater care.
 
“Unifying the voices of all stakeholders and advocates is needed so that everyone can share in investing time and effort for mental health,” said Duque. “At a time that the world collectively endured the most challenging year by far, addressing mental health concerns has become more vital and pressing. Forging partnerships and uniting our voices to call on more stakeholders and policymakers to increase investment in mental health is our best chance at dealing with this task at hand,” the health chief concluded.
