PGP to advance, expand client-centered care and sustainable services for TB project

LINGAYEN, PANGASINAN—The Provincial Government of Pangasinan (PGP) is keen on advancing and expanding client-centered care and sustainable services for tuberculosis (Access TB) projects in Pangasinan.

The project will be implemented in six hospitals namely: Pangasinan Provincial Hospital, Urdaneta District Hospital, Eastern Pangasinan District Hospital, Western Pangasinan District Hospital, and Bayambang District Hospital.

Said six hospitals will serve as implementing partners of the Department of Health to effectively and efficiently deliver quality clinical and laboratory services, TB care, and treatment among tuberculosis patients covered by Global Fund Project. All hospitals are currently operating as Satellite Treatment Centers and Rapid TB Diagnostic Laboratories (RTDL) for Drug Resistant Tuberculosis patients in the province.

As stated in a provincial resolution authored by SP Member Shiela Marie F. Baniqued and approved on March 4, “PBSP is the current Global Fund recipient that supervises the management of funding and implementation of the ACCESS TB Project or Advancing Client-centered Care and Expanding Sustainable Services for TB Project (the Global Fund Project) in the country, and it has been awarded a new grant for the implementation of the project from 2024 to 2026.”

Hence, implementation of the project will be made possible with the help of the Philippine Business for Social Progress, Inc. (PBSP), one of the largest corporate-led social development foundations in the country that operates nationwide on various health programs.

To implement the project, Governor Ramon V. Guico III will enter into and sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the PBSP Executive Director Elvin Ivan Y. Uy.
