TAKING CHARGE OF THE HEALTH NEEDS OF PEOPLE BEHIND BARS

Inmates at the detention facility center of the Cavite City Police Station were provided free basic healthcare services during the medical and dental mission conducted by the team of volunteers from the provincial government on September 16, 2019. Most of the detainees who suffer from skin diseases, allergies, cough and common colds were treated by medical practitioners from the Provincial Health Office and the 15th Strike Wing – Philippine Air Force. Doctors and dentists also facilitated lectures on proper hygiene and good oral care for them to stay healthy even behind bars. Meanwhile, ABC President, Punong Barangay Apple Paredes made her rounds on behalf of Cavite City Mayor Totie Paredes to hear out other needs of constituents inside the detention cells.
