Bulacan Rep. Jose Antonio Sy-Alvarado on Wednesday saluted barangay health workers (BHWs) for their invaluable contribution in the fight against Covid-19.

“BHWs are the health frontliners of the barangay,” the chair of the House committee on good government and public accountability said.

Sy-Alvarado described BHWs as trained volunteers who serve the community during crises like the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Sila ay mga volunteer mula sa komunidad na sumailalim sa pormal na pagsasanay para mangalaga sa kalusugan ng mga pamilya sa loob ng isang lugar o catchment area,” he said on his Facebook page.

“Kaagapay sila ng iba pang myembro ng health team (katulad ng doktor, nurse at midwife) sa pagpapalaganap ng mga programa at serbisyong pangkalusugan sa mga komunidad,” he said.

In the fight against Covid-19, BHWs play the following roles, he said: “pagtukoy sa mga taong may sakit gaya ng sore throat, ubo o lagnat sa komunidad pagsubaybay sa mga pamilyang naka-home quarantine pag-monitor at pag-alaga sa mga pasyenteng nasa community isolation units.”

“Saludo kami sa inyo at Maraming Salamat!!” Sy-Alvarado said.
