COTABATO CITY — In a continuing effort to provide high quality of health care accessible to the Bangsamoro people, the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) turned over eight land and sea ambulances to the region’s island provinces — Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi.
The ambulances were procured under the Transitional Development Impact Fund (TDIF) of some members of the Parliament representing the sea-locked areas.
Along with the Ministry of Health (MOH), they led the turn over ceremony for the vehicles.
According to MOH, the implementation of the projects aimed “to ensure delivery of quality health care services particularly to “geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas in BARMM.”
Hospitals from the municipalities of Sitangkay in Tawi-Tawi, Al-Barka and Mohammad Ajul in Basilan, and Pangutaran, Parang, Tapul and Jolo in Sulu were among the beneficiaries of the assistance.
Aside from the ambulances, the provinces’ district hospitals also received a mobile clinic, patient transport vehicle, and medicine packs.
The regional legislators hoped that the projects would serve the health needs of the residents of the provinces, especially those who are seeking immediate medical attention. (✓)
