BALANGA CITY — The health program for indigenous peoples continued in Bataan as more Aeta natives from the upland barangays availed themselves of services extended by the provincial health office.

Gov. Albert Garcia on Thursday said the latest recipients of the program were IPs from Barangay Biaan, Mariveles where 108 natives got medical assistance, 32 dental services and four vaccinated against the coronavirus disease.

Earlier, given medical assistance were 150 natives from Barangay Binaritan, Morong and 134 from Barangay Gen. Lim, Orion. Extended dental services were 100 from Binaritan and 32 from Gen. Lim.

Vaccinated against Covid–19 were four from Binaritan and 37 from Gen. Lim.

The project is under PHO’s Kalusugan hatid sa Katutubong Kapatid (KKK).

“Bukod sa libreng bunot ng ngipin, paglilinis at pasta, tinuturuan din ang mga katutubo ng kahalagahan ng kalinisan ng katawan, mga paraan para makamit ang wastong nutrisyon. Nagkakaroon din ng pagbabakuna laban sa Covid-19, mumps, measles, polio at iba pa,” Garcia said.

“Libre rin ang konsulta upang maiwasan ang mga kumplikasyon at agad mabigyang lunas ang kanilang mga karamdaman, pagsubaybay sa tamang timbang ng mga batang katutubo. Namahagi rin po tayo ng mga gamot, bitamina, hygiene kits, at tsinelas,” the governor added.

“Makaaasa ang lahat na patuloy nating ilalapit ang mga programa at serbisyong pangkalusugan sa ating mga kababayan nang sa gayon, sa ating pagtahak sa daan tungo sa mas maganda, mas malusog at mas maunlad na buhay ay wala pong maiiwan,” Garcia concluded.
