Health Excellence Awards

Manpower Complement. As a sign of gratitude, Dr. Elva M. Joson of Virac RHU expressed her warmest recognition to her fellow health workers instilling that her team together with the constituents of the Provincial Health Office and Provincial Government will continue to provide essential health services to all the people they are mandated to serve.

The 2nd Catanduanes Health Excellence Awards run on this premise: Excellence differentiates extraordinary people from ordinary people. Those who strive for excellence will have longevity in their endeavors.

And this is what Municipal Health Officer Dr. Elva M. Joson of Virac Rural Health Unit (RHU), who was feted as the Best Municipal Heath Officer in the province, has embodied in her years of service in the health sector.

Dr. Joson also narrated the collaboration and support her team experienced with their implemented programs and accomplishments, sharing the secret of their team for bagging multiple awards during the awards day on June 20, 2019 at the Provincial Convention Center.

“First and foremost ay yung family profiling namin, talagang nag family profiling kami, and then inayos namin yung mga records lalong lalo na sa family planning which is nag-iimplement na din kami ng subdermal implanon, submersion type siya ng family planning na ini-insert dito yung progestin implant. Aside from that kami meron din kaming STD-HIV activities na talagang pinaigting namen,” she explained.

She thanked the local government units and municipal executives for the support and assistance they received.

“Sabi ko nga sa response message ko “they are the wind beneath my wings, I can’t be the best MHO kung hindi po best and health workers” kumbaga the collaboration andiyan talaga and di lang naman ako, may mga kasamahan din kaming best (sa kanilang field). Tapos hardwork, sincerity, and dedication. Siguro kung pagsama-samahin yun, yun talaga ang naging reason kung bakit tumaas ang accomplishments namin,she added.

The Virac RHU was awarded with the Best Program Implementer for Child Health and the Best Program Implementer for Women’s Health.

Meanwhile, Acting Gov. Shirley A. Abundo expressed her salutation to the health workers of the province.

“Lahat talaga ng sakripisyo hinihingi po namin sainyo. Siguro kapag asa ospital ka 150% or 250% ang hinihingi kasi buhay po talaga ang nakasalalay sa kamay ninyo. Kung hindi man po kami makacompensate sa right terms of sweldo, sana po buo pa rin ang calling ninyo. If you are called to help the sick people, sana matugunan ninyo,said Abundo, hoping that Catanduanes will not only fall to being just a health awardee but also to being a province full of nourished people.

Moreover, Lilibeth I. Pabico, Development Management Officer IV Officer-in-Charge of DOH Catanduanes, also stated that rendering a better health system to fellow men is not about monetary compensation but as a way of priceless service in aiding the government attain the goal of being the healthiest people in Asia by 2030.

The Salud Bikolnon Catanduanes Excellence Award is a product of team effort with the Department of Health (DOH) and local health sectors. It is an annual celebration of giving recognition to different health sectors and respective partners in the province who excelled in the different health programs of the DOH.
