In celebration of the World Health Day, Manila Doctors Hospital (MDH), in partnership with the Coalition of Services of the Elderly (COSE), Confederation of Older Persons Association of the Philippines (COPAP), and HelpAge International, joined the global campaign for the prevalence of diabetes during the Diabetes Education and Screening Campaign, last April 8 at the Skydome, SM North EDSA.

Diabetes is one of the four major non-communicable diseases (NCDs), along with cancer, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and chronic respiratory disease. In the Philippines, it is the 6th cause of death among older persons.

The half-day free event brought awareness to the participants of different age groups through Diabetes screening, consultation and educating them on how to prevent and diagnose the symptoms of diabetes.

“To prevent the diabetes, one must take two necessary yet basic steps in self-care: awareness and willingness to take regular check-up or screening. Being healthy at older ages start while you are young. It’s a process to achieve healthy ageing,” said Emily Beridico, Executive Director of COSE.

Dr. Reynaldo Salinel Jr of MDH, talks about Diabetes self-care to the 200-300 middle to late adult participants, while Dr. Maria Liza Pineda, Dr. Jayne Mae Nubla, Dr. Ramon Ricafrente II, Dr. Peter Ante of Family Medicine, and Dr. Jasse James Lu and Dr. Erika Jane Salvame of Optha, conducted an on-going screening and consultation.

COPAP Vice President and Advocacy Committee member, Crispulo Migriño ended the event with recommendations for Policy Makers and Health Care officials, in which he expressed that older campaigners around the world recommend that older people should be involved in decision making on the care that we receive and how diabetes services are provided.

ManilaDoctorsHospital, one of the leading centers of health and wellness in the Philippines, is a private tertiary hospital which is currently expanding its services with the construction of its new Medical tower. Owned by Manila Medical Services Inc., MDH is the healthcare affiliate of Metrobank Foundation Inc, the corporate social responsibility arm of the Metrobank Group.
