The Taguig City government was recognized by the Department of Health-Metro Manila Center for Health Development (DOH-MMCHD) for the implementation of health programs during the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

During the DOH-MMCHD’s 35th anniversary held recently at the Manila Hotel, public and private sectors were recognized for their efforts during the pandemic.

The Taguig City government received a plaque of recognition “for its exemplary implementation of the Non-Communicable Diseases Prevent and Control Programs contributing to the decrease in premature deaths and burden of avoidable and chronic conditions in the National Capital Region.”


Dr. Norena Osano, head of the Taguig City Health Office (CHO), and Dr. Susana Amiscua, received the recognition on behalf of the city.

According to the Taguig City government, the award was a result of the efforts of the CHO and health workers in implementing non-communicable diseases programs on lifestyle-related diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and cancer like cervical and breast cancers.

In addition, the Taguig City government received a plaque of appreciation “for its untiring support and contribution to the achievement of different health program goals and objectives towards the realization of Universal Health Care in the Region.”
