On February 4, 2021, the Local Government Unit of Tinambac under the leadership of Municipal Mayor Atty. Ruel Brioso Tuy conducted a PRE-TRAINING WORKSHOP ON BARANGAY HEALTH LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (BHLMP) intended for Barangay Captains, Barangay Kagawads on health committee and Barangay Secretaries among the ten (10) pilot barangays of Sagrada, Pantat, San Pascual, New Caaluan, Banga, Antipolo, Pag asa, Magtang, Buenavista and Canayonan.
The Barangay Health Leadership and Management Program is a core health leadership program of Zuellig Family Foundation in partnership with the Department of Health that aims to help barangay officials and health workers understand and overcome their communities health challenges. Municipal Mayor Atty. Ruel B. Tuy believes that the key to address health inequities in barangays is through this Barangay Health Leadership and Management Program. By bringing down the BHLMP to the barangay level, barangay officials and health workers will be able to identify their roles in the delivery of basic health services to address the iniquities present in their barangays.
The upcoming three-day training workshops for the phase 2 of the BHLMP is scheduled on March 16-18, 2021.
