BDO Foundation Enhances Healthcare Support for Communities in Bohol, Strengthening Access to Vital Services

BDO Foundation (BDOF) recently handed over the rehabilitated rural health units in Dauis and Inabanga municipalities of Bohol, marking a significant step towards enhancing healthcare accessibility in these communities.

 

The completion of these projects means that over 96,000 individuals across 62 barangays now have improved access to essential primary healthcare services. This includes outpatient check-ups, vaccinations, treatment for common illnesses, as well as maternal and child health services. 


The rehabilitation efforts on the RHUs focused on refurbishing and upgrading the facilities to accommodate waiting areas, play corners for kids, offices, clinics, consultation, and treatment rooms – allowing health workers to serve more patients.  

More than 96,000 people in 62 barangays will have access to primary care with the rehabilitated rural health units in the municipalities of Dauis and Inabanga in Bohol. 

 


"We believe that these rehabilitated centers will continue to serve as vital hubs for healthcare delivery, making a tangible difference in the lives of Bohol's residents," said BDOF president Mario A. Deriquito. BDOF has now renovated 15 health centers in Bohol, covering about 1/3 of the province's 47 municipalities. 

 

To date, BDO Foundation has already rehabilitated 154 RHUs since it started to improve healthcare facilities and access in different communities of the country in 2012. Five more rehabilitated RHUs in Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Camarines Sur, and Capiz will be turned over this month.
