Two Malasakit Centers in Palo, Leyte were opened Friday (April 30).

House Majority Leader Ferdinand Martin Romualdez and his wife Tingog party-list Rep. Yedda Marie Romualdez lauded the opening of the Malasakit Centers at the Leyte Provincial Hospital and Schistosomiasis Research Hospital.

In a statement, the Romualdez couple said the Malasakit Center exemplifies the government’s efforts in making the medical services, especially to the poorest of the poor responsive to their needs.

“It rolls out the red carpet for the establishment of a one-stop shop across the country where indigent patients will have widen access to quality medical and primary health care services that would complement the implementation of the Universal Health Care (UHC) program,” the Romualdezes said.

The couple is among the authors of the Malasakit Center Act (Republic Act 11463).
