Exhibit puts spotlight on rural health care
All things considered, the Philippines has made a major stride when it comes to health care in the country with the passage of the Universal Health Care bill. One province who stands to benefit is Northern Samar. While the province has moved to higher ranks on the income distribution scale, these improvements have been blunted by several factors, including transportation difficulties (limitation in land travel and difficulty in crossing bodies of water especially during typhoons) and preference of traditional treatment modalities over biomedical or formal medicine. These, among others, were some of the results highlighted in an exhibit launched September 20 at Areté’s Art Management lobby.
The exhibit explores the various health strategies and interventions employed in the rural area of Northern Samar
