DESCRIPTION:
The role of DOH-RO IX HEMS in Disaster Risk Reduction management is to lead in the formulation of a comprehensive, integrated and coordinated health sector response to emergencies and disasters. Ensuring the development of competent, dynamic, committed and compassionate health professionals and being the center of all health-related information on emergencies and disasters. Ultimately, to develop an efficient and effective disaster risk reduction management system that will decrease mortality and morbidity, promote physical and mental health and prevent injury and disability of both victims and responders. The HEMS IX had been conducting its annual Regional Rescue Olympics among emergency medical responders of DOH-Retained Hospitals and the Local Government Units (LGU) responders since year 2011. It has been six (6) years already since the HEMS IX started the yearly competition. The institutionalization of DRRM-H for the LGUs is our main Goal as stipulated in our recent Health Sector Reform Agenda (Duterte’s Health Agenda). To have a functional operation center is the key element in the LGU scorecard requirements, it must have a space for an opcen, a policy in health emergency management including the DRRM-H Plans, must have the staff and the stuff (Human Resources and Logistics) and lastly its responders with the purpose to detect, validate and report health emergency events and provide immediate technical assistance through our regional emergency network system of responders.
