DOH SAYS 38% OF BAYANIHAN 2 BUDGET WILL BE USED FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS

A vast portion of the Department of Health’s (DOH) budget allocated under the Bayanihan to Recover as Once Act or Bayanihan 2 will be used for the deployment of healthcare professionals in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under the Bayanihan 2, a stimulus package with a budget of P165 billion, the DOH will get almost half of P53.48 billion.

In an earlier statement, the Health Department said the budget allocation would be “for the support of healthcare workers (HCWs), sustaining the drive of the DOH and keep HCWs protected while at the same time preventing the influx of patients into hospitals.”

The DOH is also hoping that it can reach its target of additional 10,00 healthcare workers to augment the country’s healthcare workforce amid the pandemic.
