DAVAO DEL NORTE: New birthing facility for Sto. Tomas barangay

The “Aksyon Sa Kalusugan” program of Mayor Ernesto Evangelista of Sto. Tomas town in Davao del Norte has established a Safe Birthing Facility in Barangay Kimamon to provide a safe and sustainable birth center to give mothers and their children access to health care providers.

Municipal administrator Atty. Eliza Evangelista-Lapina said the Barangay Kimamon Safe Birthing Facility is expected to provide efficient and effective basic services and facilities that will upgrade the quality of community life that includes health and social welfare programs and project on primary health care, maternal and child care, child and youth welfare, family and community welfare, women welfare, elderly and disable person welfare, nutrition services and reproductive health and family planning.

To ensure the smooth implementation of the program, Mayor Evangelista has assigned a full-time midwife in person of Ms. Rowela Naungayan to oversee the operations of the facility and the implementation of the various health and maternal services offered by the birthing facility.

Evangelista said it is the primordial responsibility of Santo Tomas LGU to ensure the safety of infants who will be borne, the mothers who will give birth and the health of new born infants in Barangay Kimamon.

To complement such commitment, the Evangelista administration had purchased a brand new PTV through a counter-parting scheme in a bid to improve the Barangays emergency medical response system. This is to improve the quality of life and its desire to bring public health services faster to the residents of Barangay Kimamon.
