DAR-assisted Bindoy town coop opens "Botika sa Barangay"

By Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (18 June) -- The Tinaogan Community Coordinators Association (TICCA) in Bindoy town recently launched its Botika ng Barangay (BnB), bringing to 49 the total Botika ng Barangays already operating provincewide.

The launching was attended by 1st District Congresswoman Jocelyn Limkaichong together with DAR provincial head PARO II Grace B. Fua as TICCA is a DAR-assisted cooperative.

BnB is a project of Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo that aims to make available and accessible low-cost, safe and effective medicines in the communities, especially in the marginalized, underserved, critical and hard to reach areas.

The Department of Health (DOH) here is targeting the establishment of one BnB for every two barangays in Negros Oriental.

A local DOH official disclosed that 7 BnBs will soon open in Dumaguete City this year.

DOH representatives in every local government unit in the province are currently campaigning for BnBs with members of the Association of Barangay Captains (ABCs) in the LGUs.

Requirements for the establishment of a BnB outlet include a memorandum of agreement among the DOH, the LGU and the sponsoring community organization or non-government organization as well as undergoing a training of the BnB operator conducted by DOH. (PIA) [top]
