NATIONAL HEALTH WORKFORCE SUPPORT SYSTEM DEPLOYMENT PROJECT
February 1, 2021 – The 22 staff of the City Health Services Office (CHSO) under the Department of Health Central Visayas Center for Health Development (DOH CV CHD) paid a courtesy visit to Mayor Nito Durano.
Currently, the CHSO has 17 Registered Nurses, two (2) MedTechs and two (2) Registered Midwives. This was made possible through the DOH’s National Health Workforce System (formerly called Human Resources for Health HRH Deployment Program).
The National Health Workforce System is the thrust of the government to deploy, redistribute, and retain health workers in the country to enhance access to quality health services and improve health outcomes.
In Danao City, health workers under the said program were deployed in barangays.
During the courtesy call, Mayor Nito extended his gratitude to DOH, most especially to the enthusiastic members of the Health Workforce for their significant contribution and sacrifices as Health Frontliners in this time of pandemic.
