Under the 2018 Human Resource for Health (HRH) Deployment Programs of the Department of Health, a total of 41 health professionals will be deployed starting January to various barangay health centers and stations in the City of Malaybalay.

According to City Health Office (CHO), there is an increase of HRH as compared to last year with only 36 health workers.

This year, Malaybalay HRH consists of 33 nurses under the nurse deployment project (NDP), five midwives of Rural Health Midwives Placement Program (RHMP), one universal health care implementer, one public health associate and one family health associate under the supervision of DOH-Bukidnon Development Management Officer, Dr. Vincent C. Raguro.

CHO headed by Dr. Dennis Sangalang said during their courtesy call visit at the City Government of Malaybalay on January 17, 2017, that the augmentation of HRH will greatly help implement City’s health programs and projects in support of the attainment of Universal Health Care or “Kalasugan Pangkalahatan.”

Dr. Sangalang thanked City Mayor Ignacio W. Zubiri for the support of the DOH’s deployment program that aims to make healthcare more accessible to all 46 barangays of the City.
