Ministry of Health Strengthens Regulatory Functions for Public Safety
The Ministry of Health & Wellness (MoHW) is taking the initiative to strengthen its regulatory functions countrywide. This is done through regular inspections of businesses, pharmacies, food establishments, and even hotels. Environmental health officers have been on the ground ensuring the public has access to clean and sanitary food, and medications in their environment. The Health Education, Nutrition, Drug Abuse Control Council, and Mental Health units have also strengthened their capacity building and implementation of policies to promote and improve health care. Healthcare workers who work with the public are just advised to continue their efforts by following the rules and regulations set forth.
