Health is a state of being physically, mentally, emotionally and socially well. Thus, it is considered to be most important for everyone. Being healthy improves self-esteem, mood, actions, decisions and many more. It also helps people live a longer and active life.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is a fundamental human right and the right to health for all people means that everyone should have access to the health services they need, when and where they need them, without suffering financial hardship.

No one should die because they have no money. Everyone should have access to quality health services regardless of their social status.

In the Philippines, private health care facilities provide better quality services compared to public facilities where low income Filipino families go to. These public facilities, mostly in rural areas, have less medical staff and equipment. Given these situations, the Department of Health (DOH) is continuously improving the situation of health care facilities in the country to achieve a better quality health care system. They provide free hospitalization to those admitted in public hospitals; and indigent and senior citizens automatically become members of Philippine Health Insurance Corporation or PhilHealth without needing to pay for any fees.

The Universal Health Care (UHC) Bill signed by President Rodrigo Duterte (now Republic Act No. 11223) automatically enrolls all Filipino citizens in the National Health Insurance Program and prescribes complementary reforms in the health system. This law expands the current PhilHealth coverage by now including free medical consultations and laboratories and guaranteeing quality and affordable health care services to all Filipinos.

December 12 is International Universal Health Coverage Day. As human beings, we should opt to provide ourselves with right and adequate health protection in order to prevent unexpected out-of-pocket expenses during hospital confinements. It also allows us to focus more on getting better instead of worrying about the medical bills.
