The program features visiting health experts discussing relevant and timely information related to health, which is very important now as the world continues to fight the pandemic. Launched at the beginning of the year, Kaisa sa Kalusugan, is broadcast every Sunday morning via Radyo Natin Atimonan 106.5, which reaches more than 50% of Atimonan barangays. The program is also broadcast on the Facebook page of the A1E community. Atimonan municipal health worker Dr Richard Argulla recognized the importance of the radio program to the government’s COVID-19 information, education and communication (IEC) efforts. “The weekly radio show has helped disseminate health information, provide convenient treatment and prevent various diseases relevant to the ongoing pandemic,” said Dr Argulla. Since its launch, Kaisa sa Kalusugan has presented discussions on COVID-19 and the vaccination program; oral health; eye care; family planning; nutrition; teenage pregnancy; Mental Health; vaccination of children; and the importance of breastfeeding. The company aims to continue this IEC campaign even after the pandemic. Listeners can expect more interesting and relevant discussions about drugs and alcohol; sports and other fitness programs, and relevance of PhilHealth in future episodes.
