Health Services supports the expansion of primary health care coverage with its community-based health programs. It also ensures timely response to public health emergencies and the delivery of essential health care services in times of disasters. Its program is centered on the importance of health promotion and prevention of diseases.
Health Services also identifies communities with gaps on access to health facilities and services. Health professionals such as nurses, midwives, and doctors who are involved are trained on disaster nursing, emergency field hospital operations, water and sanitation and hygiene. They are mobilized to do health assessments, deliver essential health, services, and health education campaigns.
