COTABATO CITY -- The Cotabato City Office on Health Services has recognized the agency’s nurses and midwives who worked hard and gave their best to their work last 2016.  

The awards were given to the health personnel who achieved the highest percentage of achievements in the implementation of OHS’s programs such as Safe Motherhood, Family Planning, Expanded Program of Immunization and the National Tuberculosis Program.  

Known as front line health providers of the city, the nurses and midwives provide proper and adequate health care to the people in the different barangays of the city.  

According to Dr. Suher Guinomla-Ibrahim, city health officer in-charge, recognizing the efforts of the health workers will inspire them to improve their work more and continue to serve the citizens of Cotabato.  

“It really means a lot to them when we recognize their efforts. It is enough for them that they are being appreciated for what they do,” Ibrahim said.  

Cotabato City’s Poblacion 5 was also recognized for receiving the Regional Sandugo Awards.

This award is given to communities where at least one percent of the total population donated blood in the mobile blood donation conducted last year in the barangays. Jehann Christie S. Andal/NDU BA-Comm
