PHILHEALTH EXPANDS COVERAGE TO FOREIGN NATIONALS

STARTING July 1, 2017, foreign nationals and former Filipino citizens who have chosen to retire in the Philippines may avail themselves of social health insurance benefits.

Under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in 2015 between the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) and the Philippine Retirement Authority (PRA), qualified foreign retirees who are registered with the PRA or former Filipinos may enrol under the Informal Economy member category to gain access to medical care services in the country.

The MoU aims to further strengthen the collaboration between the two government agencies to promote the country as a retirement haven for qualified foreigners. 

Interested foreign retirees in the country may submit the properly filled out PhilHealth Member Registration Form for Foreign Nationals to the PRA Head Office in Makati City or to any of its satellite offices nationwide. Requirements for their enrolment are Special Resident Retiree’s Visa (SRRV) and a granted permanent residency status pursuant to Section 9 (d) of Executive Order No. 1037. The PRA will facilitate their enrolment into the National Health Insurance Program (NHIP). 

Citizens of other countries residing or working in the Philippines with a valid Alien Certificate of Registration Identity Card (ACR I-Card) issued by the Bureau of Immigration may submit their PMRF for Foreign Nationals to the nearest Local Health Insurance Office (LHIO).

All member-foreign nationals and their qualified dependents shall be entitled to inpatient and outpatient benefits and other special benefit packages through any of the PhilHealth-accredited health care institutions nationwide. Excluded from their entitlements, however, are the Z Benefit packages, reimbursement for all confinements abroad and benefits for women about to give birth (WATGB).

The annual premium contribution rate for PRA foreign retirees is P15,000.00, while that of other foreign citizens is P17,000.00. They may pay for their premium contributions either quarterly, semi-annually or annually. # Source - (Dahlia D. Benedicto)/Philhealth

DEPED ITERATES ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY VS CHILD

The Department of Education (DepEd) stands firm with its commitment to promote and provide a safe and free-from-fear learning environment for all learners in both public and private schools nationwide.

In view of the opening of School Year (SY) 2017-2018 and with the transfer of displaced learners from Marawi, DepEd iterates its zero tolerance policy against any act of child abuse, exploitation, violence, discrimination, bullying, and other forms of mistreatment, which may affect the normal development of learners.

Child Protection Committee

To ensure that cases and instances of abuse are closely monitored at school level, DepEd issued the DepEd Order No. 40, series of 2012, or the DepEd Child Protection Policy, which requires all elementary and secondary schools—both public and private—to create their own Child Protection Committee (CPC).

In a press briefing, Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said, “Ang Child Protection Policy natin, mandato yan ng United Nations, mandato yan ng ating pamahalaan na lahat ng bata ay kailangang i-protect from bullying. Yun ang pinagbabasehan ng ating policy. So at the level of the school, merong Child Protection Committee.”

The CPC is composed of the following: 1) School Head/Administrator as Chairperson; 2) Guidance Counselor/Teacher as Vice Chairperson; 3) Representatives of the teachers as designated by the Faculty Club; 4) Representative of the parents as designated by the Parents-Teachers Association (PTA); 5) Representative of learners as designated by the Supreme Student Council; and 6) Representative from the community as designated by the Punong Barangay, preferably a member of the Barangay Council for the Protection of Children (BCPC).

Undersecretary Jesus Mateo further explained, “Yung Child Protection Committee, hindi lang po DepEd ito, kasama po rito yung local community. Kung may nangyari, ang ginagawa diyan ay paghaharapin yung sinasabing nang-bully at na-bully, kasama ng kanilang mga magulang para mapag-usapan yun. At depende yan dun sa gravity ng bullying.”

Some of the roles of the CPC are: to ensure that learners are following a certain Code of Conduct in schools and that schools have their localized Child Protection Policy; to develop and implement a school-based referral and monitoring system of cases of all forms of abuse and bullying; and to identify, refer, and report cases of child abuse, exploitation, violence, discrimination, and bullying to the appropriate offices if needed, among others.

Moreover, DepEd released the DepEd Order No. 55, s. 2013, or the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act (RA) No. 10627, otherwise known as The Anti-Bullying Act of 2013, which further provides clearer rules on bullying and cyber-bullying. This was recently reiterated through DepEd Memorandum No. 5, s. 2017, or the Reiteration of the Department of Education Anti-Bullying Policy.

Displaced Marawi learners protected from harm

The ongoing battle between the military and lawless elements in Marawi City forced Marawi learners to transfer schools—schools far away from their region that possibly have different beliefs and customs that could make them more prone to bullying.

Briones assured that these Marawi learners will be protected from harm, particularly from bullying, “Nasabihan ko na yung mga Regional Directors na kailangan, i-brief nila yung mga teachers under their jurisdiction about the anti-bullying policy, where we have very strict sanctions.”

Briones mentioned that there was a proposal of creating separate classes for displaced Marawi learners to protect them from bullying but the Education Secretary pressed that it will just further promote discrimination and create misunderstanding between the local learners and the displaced Marawi learners.

“As early as possible, i-integrate talaga sila [displaced Marawi learners] sa regular classes,” Briones added.

DepEd’s call to learners, parents, teachers and public

Furthermore, DepEd encourages learners, parents, teachers, and other stakeholders to refrain from engaging in discriminatory acts against people’s opinion, status, gender, ethnicity, religion, as well as their moral and physical integrity.

DepEd also prohibits the use of corporal punishment or any kind of punishment imposed for an alleged or actual offense, which is carried out by a teacher, school administrator, an adult, or any other child who has been given or has assumed authority or responsibility for punishment or discipline.

Briones mentioned that an administrative case shall be filed against DepEd officials who will neglect his or her duty in providing a safe and free–from-fear learning environment for learners, “Tinitingnan natin yan, halimbawa, nagpabaya ang authorities, then at the level of the Central Office, or the Regional Director, we take actions. Administrative case yan.”

“We keep on reminding our teachers, as well as students na wala na tayo sa dark ages na might is always right,” Briones pointed out. #  Source – www.deped.gov.ph

DEPED WELCOMES AROUND 27.7M LEARNERS NATIONWIDE

The Department of Education (DepEd) welcomed around 27.7 million learners nationwide, including the first batch of Grade 12 learners since the full implementation of the K to 12 Program, on June 5, the official start of the School Year (SY) 2017-2018.

Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones noted that there have been no reports of major problems encountered by schools nationwide. She added that the commitments of other agencies, such as the Philippine National Police (PNP), contributed to the smooth opening of classes. 

Minimizing the number of drop-outs

Briones emphasized that poverty and school distance are some of the reasons why school-age children drop out. To address these, the Department is expanding the Alternative Learning System (ALS) to encourage more out-of-school youths (OSYs) to return to school, "Mayroon tayong Alternative Learning System kung saan may night school para sa mga bata na nagta-trabaho. Nagse-set up din tayo ng learning centers para sa mga bata na kailangan matuto magsulat at magbasa."

The 27.7 million learners expected in SY 2017-2018 already includes projected enrollees for ALS. 

Addressing classroom shortages

During a press conference at the President Corazon Aquino High School in Baseco, Manila, Briones explained the reason behind the shortages in classrooms and school buildings, “Palaki nang palaki talaga ang enrollment natin dahil every year, may mga pumapasok na Kindergarten, may mga nadadagdag. DepEd and the local government units (LGUs) try to catch up [in terms of school facilities and other school materials] with the unavoidable increase in enrollment every year.”

Moreover, Briones expressed the intention of the Department to build more school buildings to address this concern; however, the problem on buildable spaces arises.

“Gusto naman talaga nating magdagdag ng shool buildings pero ang problema ay yung mga buildable spaces. Kasi kung panay building na lang ang eskwelahan, hindi rin yun healthy sa mga bata,” Briones stated.

Based on data from 2014 to 2016, the Department has registered more than half the completion rate in classroom construction, with the 2014 and the 2015 backlogs close to accomplishment at 84.11% and 72.38%, respectively. Of the total physical target of 107,920 classrooms, only 41,880 remain underway.

“Kaya nga we are considering, maybe in the near future, mag-build tayo ng school communities outside the urban centers. Tapos i-bus na lang yung mga bata sa lugar na ito,” Briones added.

Other solution being considered by the Education Department in addressing the problem in classrooms is to build high-rise school buildings.

“Other alternative is to build high rise school buildings. It would necessitate the cooperation and the generosity of the local government… Kung gusto nilang malapit, high-rise building,” Briones explained.

Senior High School classes and teachers

DepEd-NCR Director Ponciano Menguito clarified that they have not issued any directive to merge Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE) classes to be taught by one teacher. He stated that, in some remote cases, this may be the contingency measure of the school principal if there are no teachers available to teach the subject. However, this is only for emergency situation. 

Menguito also explained that Junior High School (JHS) teachers in Metro Manila are not forced to teach in SHS. Teacher hiring for Grades 11 and 12 has been opened since February and is also open for JHS teachers, if they have the expertise. 

Accommodating displaced Marawi learners

Briones noted that based on records, around 20,000 learners are expected to be displaced from Marawi City and it would take time for them and their families to return given that many houses and establishments were destroyed in the armed conflict in the city.

Staying committed in the DepEd’s goal to reach all learners, the Education Chief mentioned anew the efforts of the Department in accommodating these displaced learners from Marawi, “Nagbigay naman ang DepEd Central Office (CO) ng orders sa mga regional at division offices na huwag pahirapan yung mga naglilipat na mga estudyante. Maari silang mag-enroll nang hindi kumpleto ang mga enrollment requirements.”

Surrounding DepEd offices in Marawi have already conducted mapping of displaced learners to better accommodate their learning needs. Briones said, “Naka-scatter sila sa iba’t ibang lugar sa Pilipinas. Pero medyo malaki ang consideration natin sa Iligan at Cagayan de Oro dahil ito yung mga malapit.”

Briones also said that an influx of Marawi student transferees in Zamboanga and Cotabato may also happen considering that some Marawi residents have relatives in these locations, “The usual impulse kasi is to go to your relatives, kaya aside from Iligan, Cagayan de Oro and Lanao, may mga lumilikas din sa Zamboanga at Cotabato.”

Safe learning environment for learners

Briones explained that the Department is mobilizing and coordinating with PNP by heightening the security arrangements not only during school opening.

DepEd also has expressed its commitment in contributing to the normalization of the learners’ welfare. In schools, tarpaulins and signages indicating that schools are zones of peace are displayed.

“Kami ay naglalagay ng mga tarpaulins na ang schools ay zones of peace. Na hangga’t maaari, huwag dalhin yung mga conflict at iba pang opinyon sa eskwelahan para hindi ma-trauma yung mga bata,” Briones said.

The DepEd executive committee members are set to visit different regions to personally monitor the school opening from June 5 to 10. #  Source – www.deped.gov.ph

PHILIPPINES MAY FACE EL NIÑO ANEW IN 2017

The Philippines and many countries in the Pacific may be faced with another spell of El Niño later this year, an Australian meteorological agency said, months after the region wilted under intense heat following one of the worst dry spells on record.

According to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, climate model outlooks it surveyed suggest that the likelihood of El Niño forming in 2017 has risen, pushing the bureau’s El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) status from “neutral” to “watch” which means that the likelihood of El Niño developing in 2017 is approximately 50 percent.

“Seven of eight international models surveyed by the Bureau indicate steady warming in the central tropical Pacific Ocean over the next six months. Six models suggest El Niño thresholds may be reached by July 2017,” it said in a statement.

ENSO is the phenomenon arising from the interaction of the ocean and the atmosphere in the east-central equatorial Pacific. This results in a periodic variation between below-normal and above-normal sea surface temperatures over the course of several years.

This interaction between the ocean the atmosphere is an essential part of an El Niño phenomenon. During an episode of El Niño, sea level pressure is lower in the eastern Pacific and higher in the western Pacific. The reverse happens during La Niña.

In late 2015 to June 2016, the Philippines experienced one of the most severe El Niño phenomena on record. The agriculture sector took a serious hit, with the production of staple crops such as rice at low levels.

Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1 

The Philippines experienced similar droughts in 1998 when 70 percent of the country was affected and P4 billion worth of crops was damaged. The agriculture sector, the second biggest employer in the country, contracted by 6.4 percent that year, which resulted in the decline of the gross domestic product that year.

The Australian meteorological bureau said that although atmospheric and oceanic indicators of ENSO are still on normal levels, sea surface temperatures have been increasing in the eastern Pacific.

On average, according to the bureau, sea surface temperatures are now warmer than average for the first time since June 2016.

El Niño in the Philippines is characterized by delayed onset or early termination of the rainy season. Weak monsoon activity is also experienced during this episode as well as weak tropical cyclone activity. # Adapted News

THE PHASES OF SEAL OF GOOD LOCAL GOVERNANCE 2017

The Department of the Interior and local Government Region 1 (DILG R1) kicked off the implementation of the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) this year with a regional orientation at the Oasis Country Resort Hotel and Restaurant, here.

The activity was aimed at orienting and familiarizing the DILG Provincial Offices and Regional Assessment Teams (RAT) on the SGLG guidelines, particularly the assessment areas and criteria, forms and checklist, and implementation process. 

Each RAT, composed of a DILG Officer and local civil society organization (CSO) representative, together with a documenter, is assigned with more or less 15 LGUs to assess on a cross-posting scheme.

Following the regional activity, the provincial offices conducted provincial orientations to their respective City/ Municipal Local Government Operations Officers (C/MLGOOs) on May 8,9,10, and 11, 2017 for La Union, Pangasinan, Ilocos Sur, and Ilocos Norte, respectively.

All the 129 Local Government units (LGUs) in the region – 4 provinces, 9 cities and 116 municipalities -- shall be assessed using the scaled-up assessment criteria of “4+1”. 

From being one of the essential areas last year, Peace and Order was added as one of the four core areas along with Financial Administration, Social Protection, and Disaster Preparedness. The essential areas, on the other hand, include Business-Friendliness and Competitiveness, Environmental Management, and Tourism, Culture and Arts.

An LGU has to pass all four core areas and at least one essential area to qualify for the Seal. Awardees shall be conferred with a 2017 SGLG marker and a cash incentive the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) to finance their local development initiatives. A special distinction shall likewise be given to LGUs which consistently passed all assessment areas for the three periods (2015, 2016 and 2017).
The data gathering, validation and certification phases of the 2017 SGLG shall be from May 15 to June 16, 2017 the conferment of the Seal shall be in October in line with the Local Government Code anniversary celebration. # Adapted – www.dilg.gov.ph

WORLD BLOOD DONOR DAY

Every year, on 14 June, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD). The event serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.

Blood is an important resource, both for planned treatments and urgent interventions. It can help patients suffering from life-threatening conditions live longer and with a higher quality of life, and supports complex medical and surgical procedures. Blood is also vital for treating the wounded during emergencies of all kinds (natural disasters, accidents, armed conflicts, etc.) and has an essential, life-saving role in maternal and perinatal care.

A blood service that gives patients access to safe blood and blood products in sufficient quantity is a key component of an effective health system. Ensuring safe and sufficient blood supplies requires the development of a nationally coordinated blood transfusion service based on voluntary non-remunerated blood donations. However, in many countries, blood services face the challenge of making sufficient blood available, while also ensuring its quality and safety. #  Source:  www.dilg.gov.ph
