A state-of-the-art mobile clinic called “Healthy Pinas Mobile Clinic” was launched on Monday aiming to give free medical care to residents of Magalang town in Pampanga province.

Senator Risa Hontiveros, who led the opening of the clinic in Barangay Turu, described her project as “bayanihan on wheels.”

“Pagsubok ngayon, lalo na sa mahihirap nating mga kababayan ang magpunta sa ospital dahil sa dalawang bagay: una, ang banta ng Covid-19 sa kalusugan, at ikalawa, ang mga bayarin na banta naman sa kanilang bulsa,” the senator said.

“Makakatulong ang Healthy Pinas Van upang hindi na iyan alalahanin ng ilan sa ating mga kababayan,” Hontiveros said.

“Hindi lamang Covid-19 ang kalaban natin sa kalusugan. Nariyan ang cancer, heart disease, diabetis, hypertension, ang mga nagda-dialysis, at iba pa. Kailangan rin silang bigyan ng agarang pansin,” she added.

“Ang mga serbisyo sa Healthy Pinas van ay makakatulong sa pagmo-monitor ng mga common diseases. Ang check up na dati ay hirap silang makuha sa ospital, libre nilang makukuha dito,” Hontiveros said.

The mobile clinic provides high-quality diagnostic services, such as chest x-ray, Complete Blood Count (CBC) test, ultrasound, ECG test, and lipid profile test.

The clinic will also offer diagnostic and medical consultation services to be conducted by doctors.
