MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. on Monday said that P11.12 billion has been allocated for specialty medical centers in the 2024 national budget.

Nakapagbigay tayo ng P 11.12 billion for 2024 para makapagpatayo pa tayo ng mga specialty centers sa iba’t ibang mga lugar,” said Marcos in a video message on Instagram. 


(We have allocated P11.12 billion for 2024 so that we could build more specialty medical centers in different places.) 


In August 2023, Marcos signed the  Regional Specialty Centers Act, mandating every region to have a specialty medical center.  

“As of December 2023, we have established 131 specialty centers nationwide,” said Marcos 

The President, however, did not specify if all of these were established during his term or if they were carried over from the previous administration. 

In his video report, Marcos also said that the “Doctors to the Barangays” program has reached 204 out of 218 municipalities.
