MANILA, Philippines – New halfway houses which will cater to cancer patients will soon rise in the Philippine capital, the Manila City government said.

In a statement Monday, Manila City Health Officer Dr. Arnold Pangan said the construction of halfway houses is part of an integrated plan to strengthen the city’s public health facilities.

Pangan said halfway houses will serve as temporary shelters for cancer patients at the Philippine General Hospital as well as the city’s specialized health centers to ease their recovery and lessen transportation expenses.

Likewise, the city government also said it aims to build new facilities for diabetes patients and wellness centers for women.

“Our plans include building specialty centers for diabetes, halfway homes for cancer patients, and women wellness centers,” Pangan said during a consultation meeting with Manila district hospital chiefs and health center directors.

“We are also planning to create Super Health Centers with Vertical Housing for our employees,” he added.

Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso emphasized that the city government requires mutual cooperation and thorough assessments to provide the best health care services to the people.

“Kaya ako nag a-assess. I govern with data. I want to utilize whatever is here to spend it efficiently and so that the city government will be guided accordingly.”

Domagoso stressed the intent to reestablish the people’s confidence in public health systems through joint effort and correspondence.

“I encourage each and everyone of you, it’s high time to collaborate. I want to declog our hospitals. I want the people of Manila to trust our health centers. ‘Yun ang pangarap natin, ibalik ang dignidad ng mga health centers,” he said.
