Angat Bayanihan Meeting Registration

Ngayong araw, nilulunsad namin ang #AngatBayanihan — ito ang ating VOLUNTEER PROGRAM sa Angat Buhay kung saan puwede kayong mag-ambag ng oras, talento, o kahit anong tulong para sa agarang pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan.  Dito, puwede kang magsagawa ng iba’t ibang klase ng paglapit at pagtulong sa kapwa, lalo na para doon sa mga nakilala natin sa ating mga pag-iikot sa iba’t ibang parte ng Pilipinas.  Ilang halimbawa ng pagbabayanihan sa pamamagitan ng Angat Buhay ang agarang pagkilos ng volunteer groups sa Abra at Ilocos provinces na tumugon sa pangangailangan ng mga nasalanta ng lindol. Bago pa man iyan, nagsagawa rin ng relief operations ang ating magigiting na volunteers para sa apektado ng Banaue landslides. Nariyan din ang mga kabataan sa Maynila na magsasagawa ng kanilang medical mission sa komunidad. Nitong nakaraang Sabado, may individual volunteers na bumisita sa ating Community Learning Hub para magbigay ng mga libro para sa ating learners. Napakaraming p

ConnecTB empowers Antipolo TB treatment center response amid pandemic

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal, July 24 (PIA)—The Antipolo City Government and its local TB Satellite Treatment Center utilize digital tools such as the ConnecTB mobile application to combat challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to USAID, Antipolo City Mayor Andrea Bautista-Ynares, together with other local chief executives in 2019, supported the institution’s TB Platforms in line with a reinforced TB response and drafting of local TB Ordinances in order to eradicate TB.

The City Government, after several discussions with the project’s Region 4-A team, committed its support to information and education campaigns on TB education in order to raise public awareness on TB symptoms and access to TB services in the city. To date, the Antipolo STC has been successful in the local TB program implementation.

Mayor Ynares is also slated to share the LGU’s best practices to other municipalities and cities in the upcoming  Usapang Dibdiban session with local chief executives which advocates the use of mobile health applications in TB-COVID19 response.

Meanwhile, healthcare workers like Julie Ann Chato, designated TB nurse and Antipolo NTP Nurse Coordinator, remotely monitor enlisted Multi-Drug Resistant TB patients via mobile phone.

Prior to the pandemic, Ms. Chato  and her peers use USAID's ConnecTB app. With the COVID-19 pandemic and limits placed on health facility visitors, the  Antipolo STC maximizes the use of the health app in urging TB patients  adhere to treatment, report adverse drug reactions for program staff to address their needs.

Through ConnecTB, Chato also reports that the Antipolo STC team monitors 58 MDRTB patients and through the support of the families of TB patients, has achieved 100% treatment adherence.

 “With limited transportation due to community quarantine, both healthcare workers and patients find it difficult to conduct face-to-face counselling sessions. We brought the supply of TB medicines to the patients’ residences then we explained the treatment regimen, the rest of our monitoring was thru the ConnecTB mobile app. We are grateful that USAID’s TB Platforms introduced this digital tool to all of us,”  Chato shares.

“Every week we also call our patients and a representative from his or her family so we can remind them the importance of treatment adherence as well as provide additional updates about TB care and treatment,” she adds. (PIA-Rizal with reports from USAID)

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Ginusto Niyo 'Yan!

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na. Pero all of you still chose to be fooled and deceived by them. But it's too late na eh nakaupo na sila sa pwesto na hindi nila deserve. Pero ito na lang... Let our response be, GINUSTO NIYO 'YAN!
