Lawmaker backs establishment of dialysis center in Baguio

HELP FOR THE CITY -- Baguio Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Sen. Joel Villanueva share light moments as they reminisced the days when they were “classmates” in the House of Representatives during the 12th, 13th, and 14th Congress.

Dialysis patients got another supporter in Sen. Joel Villanueva who sought to collaborate with the city government of Baguio for the establishment of a dialysis center.

Villanueva and Mayor Mauricio Domogan talked about the possible collaboration during the lawmaker’s courtesy call at the City Hall on Thursday.

“The worsening problem of our people who need dialysis treatment is alarming, and the cost of treatment is very high. We hope that through this project with Mayor Mauricio Domogan, we can help ease their financial burden,” Villanueva said.

He also affirmed his support for a legislation that will provide free dialysis to kidney patients, after he was informed by media practitioners of the signature campaign of the Baguio Correspondents and Broadcasters Club (BCBC) asking the government to provide a free dialysis.

The BCBC campaign already got the nod of Baguio Rep. Mark Go and Sen. Sonny Angara in sponsoring a bill for free dialysis in the Lower House and Senate, respectively.

Department of Health data shows that the number of Filipinos undergoing dialysis treatment increased from around 10,000 in 2013 to around 14,000 in 2016.

Villanueva said he also submitted a bill for the establishment of Philippine Diabetes Center, which can also help address the kidney dialysis concern, with diabetes a primary risk factor of kidney failure.

The senator also took time to meet with religious leaders and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority officials, personnel and other tech-voc stakeholders to express his gratitude for their continuing support and to share his first year accomplishments in the Senate that involves filing close to 200 bills and resolutions.

Villanueva, a former secretary of Tesda, expressed his continuing support for the development of tech-voc education and skills development and in providing more job opportunities for tech-voc graduates.
