NHA joins ‘Lab for All’ Caravan

The National Housing Authority on Thursday said they have joined the LAB FOR ALL Program Cavite Service Caravan held at the Tagaytay International Convention Center for thousands of marginalized beneficiaries to see their involvement in its upcoming endeavors.

The LAB FOR ALL Program is an initiative of First Lady Marie Louise Araneta-Marcos that aims to provide primary healthcare assistance through free laboratory testing services, medical check-ups, family planning services, and distribution of free medicines in support of the implementation of RA 11223 or the Universal Healthcare Act.

In her message during the event, the First Lady emphasized the important role played by their private and public partners in the success of the LAB FOR ALL rollout.

"We want to bring government services closer to the people and not the other way around… Today I am particularly happy because there are two more agencies joining us, the National Housing Authority (para sa pabahay) and the Department of Migrant Workers, for their trade fair and job fair," the First Lady proudly announced.

As part of the caravan, NHA hosted a booth to facilitate inquiries on the various NHA housing programs in support of the administration's Build Better and More Housing Program under the Pambansang Pabahay Para sa Pilipino Program.

Among the other agencies present were the Department of Health; Technical Education and Skills Development Authority; Food and Drug Administration; Department of Agriculture; Commission on Higher Education; National Grid Corporation of the Philippines; as well as representatives from the private sector namely, End Cervical Cancer PH; Lucio Tan Group and Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation Inc.; and the Private Sector Advisory Council on Healthcare.

Moreover, Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla and Tagaytay City Mayor Abraham Tolentino, along with other local and national government officials, extended their gratitude and support to the caravan.
