“Per Administrative Order No. 2020-0047, the PCF licensing is important to fulfill the UHC Act’s goal to ensure that every Filipino has access to affordable, safe and highest quality primary care services and health benefits,” the local government said on Monday.

Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano, meanwhile, underscored that she aims to continue expanding health services in the local government.

“We believe that in order to adapt to the rapidly changing society, we must ensure the health of our community. Health is essential for a society to function; thus, we will continue to create effective and inclusive health programs for our citizens in Taguig City,” she said.
