President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Wednesday recognized barangay health workers in their fight against Covid-19 during his meeting with leaders of the Barangay Health and Wellness party list in Malacañang.
The BHW party list is advocating for the welfare of barangay health workers, providing them and their families with medical, educational, and burial assistance.
Marcos noted that the passage of the Magna Carta for Barangay Health Workers would give them moral uplift.
“I’m also happy to say I was with the Presidential Legislative Liaison Office yesterday (24 January) and among the laws that were already passed was the Magna Carta for Barangay Health Workers (in the Lower House). It’s a big help,” he told the BHW party-list leaders.
“We can never argue the importance of barangay health workers and for that matter all the volunteers at the barangay level and the BHW, especially now that there are many disasters, we know we can always count on BHW.”
The Magna Carta for Barangay Health Workers is one of the House bills under the Legislative-Executive Development Advisory Council approved on the third reading at the House of Representatives.
