Government Organizations

Department of Health

The Department of Health (DOH) holds the over-all technical authority on health as it is a national health policy-maker and regulatory institution. Basically, the DOH has three major roles in the health sector:

  • (1) leadership in health;

  • (2) enabler and capacity builder;

  • (3) administrator of specific services

Its mandate is to develop national plans, technical standards, and guidelines on health. Aside from being the regulator of all health services and products, the DOH is the provider of special tertiary health care services and technical assistance to health providers and stakeholders.

The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) was created in 1995 to implement universal health coverage in the Philippines. It is a tax-exempt, government-owned and government-controlled corporation (GOCC) of the Philippines, and is attached to the Department of Health. Its stated goal is to ensure a sustainable national health insurance program for all.Nevertheless, this social insurance program provides a means for the healthy to pay for the care of the sick and for those who can afford medical care to subsidize those who cannot. Both local and national governments allocate funds to subsidize the indigent.

Kythe Foundation

When Kythe was beginning its journey, children living with chronic illness were at the core of its operations as a foundation. Two decades after, it still carries the same inspiration. Child Life Program for hospitalized children has been Kythe’s brand of pediatric care. The tradition of psycho-social support through the Child Life Program remains its baseline requirement in our day-to-day work. It entails Child Life practitioners among our staff who either have a Doctorate or Masteral Degree in Psychology/Counseling and Registered Social Workers.

Rotary Club's "Gift of Life" Program

The “Gift of Life” program began in 1974 at the Long Island district of Rotary International. Since then many other Rotary Districts have become involved and now some 10,000 children from more than 36 countries have received cardiovascular life saving operations in the United States.
