Mayor cites city's sports achievements

BAGUIO CITY – In his State of the City Address, Mayor Mauricio Domogan said that in the field of sports, the city's commitment to develop world class athletic performance in various sporting events has borne good results.

"We now have a stable of excellent and home-grown athletes. For the record, we have 17 athletes who have represented the city and established their niche in the world arena of sports. Among them are Eduard Folayang and others," he pointed out.

Domogan said Baguio athletes that make up 85% of the Cordillera team were adjudged as the best performing athletes in the recently-concluded Palarong Pambansa in Antique.

He added that Baguio and Benguet province are bidding to host next year's Palarong Pambansa with the initial evaluation of facilities already done.

He said the city's athletes rank first in Batang Pinoy for those 15 years old and below and second in the National Games for athletes 16 years old and above.

"The outstanding feat of our athletes deserves the city's support," the Mayor stressed.

Domogan said the city has increased the incentives of athletes from P2.5 million to P6.3 million as a "token of gratitude for excelling in their chosen field of sports as representatives of the city."-gaby keith

Re: Mayor lauds health services delivery in SOCA

BAGUIO CITY – Acknowledging that health services delivery is undoubtedly one of the most demanding in the city, Mayor Mauricio Domogan commended the Health Services Offices (HSO) under Dr. Rowena Galpo for the Summer Capital's consistent winning of awards on health and nutrition.

Baguio has won the Crown Award on Nutrition, Pink Award for anti-smoking initiatives, Gawad Kalinga award for best TB-DOTS facility at the City Camp health center and another award for the best community health team at the Atab health center.

The HSO is also the first city government department that is vying for ISO Certification to further improve service delivery.

In his State of the City Address at city hall Monday, Domogan said the local dengue control program reported a 91.82% decrease for its levels in 2016 and carried on through the first half of 2017.

"We now have free dengue testing in all district health centers. Hopefully, we can look forward to a day when Baguio can again be dengue-free," he added.

The Mayor pointed out that the city has now been human rabies-free for the past 14 months due to the joint initiative of the HSO and City Veterinary Office headed by Dr. Brigit Piok in cooperation with barangays for the two-pronged attack on the problem.

"We have also sustained zero death in all vaccine preventable diseases," he stressed.

Domogan said the city's 16 district health centers continue to be Philhealth accredited for the primary care benefit package and TB DOTS while some have recently been certified as animal bite treatment centers.-gaby keith
