Hepa-B immunization Law welcomed

Statement of Senator Pia S. Cayetano
Chairperson, Senate Committee on Health and Demography
Principal Author and Sponsor, RA 10152

“I laud the enactment of Republic Act 10152, the ‘Mandatory Infants and Children Immunization Act of 2011.’ It will help boost government efforts to reduce child mortality under our Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and mitigate the spread of Hepatitis B, which medical experts consider a major public health threat.”

“I look forward to more health measures being signed into law under the Aquino administration, including the proposal for universal Philhealth coverage and the Reproductive Health Bill.” #
