DOH V re-brands Salud Bikolnon as full-packaged health services for Bicolanos
The Department of Health - Center for Health Development (DOH-CHD) Bicol, in partnership with the Provincial Health Office (PHO) of the Provincial Government of Camarines Sur, brought the Salud Bikolnon Fair to SM City Naga on October 3-5, 2019.

Health care providers from all over Camarines Sur convened to give free health services during the three-day event. Thirteen fair booths, namely, Nutrition, Expanded Newborn Screening/Universal Newborn Hearing Screening, Teen & Family Planning Clinic/Mental Health, Safe Motherhood & Prenatal Services, STI & HIV Screening, Immunization, Health Emergency Management, PEN, Kilatis Kutis & Geriatric Services, Dental Services, Drug Test, PhilHealth, and Universal Health Care/Serbisyong Salud Bikolnon were stationed to offer Libreng Serbisyong Salud Bikolnon Para Sa Lahat.


The Salud Bikolnon was first created 10 years ago as an award given to local government units, hospitals, and partners for their exemplary health services. Now on its 10th year, the DOH-CHD Bicol re-branded Salud Bikolnon to give holistic and integrated health services to Bicolanos.

According to Noemi Bron, Health and Education Promotion Officer (HEPO) III, the essence of Serbisyong Salud Bikolnon is quality health care. She defined quality health care as a fast, right, sufficient, affordable, and friendly service.

Along the launching of Serbisyong Salud Bikolnon in CamSur, the benefits of Republic Act (RA) 11223 or the Universal Health Care Act was also highlighted.

The rebranding of Serbisyong Salud Bikolnon will be executed in three phases such as Magaya-gayang Serbisyo (2019-2020), Maginhawang Serbisyo (2020-2021), and Mabaskog na Serbisyo (2021-2022). This program will allow the Bicolanos to avail not only basic health services but also add-on services that they need according to their age and health needs.
