I had a telling discussion with major health sector stakeholders during the informal meeting on the Asia-Pacific Parliamentarian Forum for Global Health this morning at the Senate.

The event seeks to push health legislation in the Philippines and start the preparations for the next forum to be held here in Manila this coming month of August.

As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Health and Demography, on top of my priorities is to pass necessary measures that will ensure the well-being and uplift the lives of the Filipinos.
