The Olongapo City recently received medical equipment from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

Through the efforts of Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr., and the City Health Office, residents of Olongapo City especially pregnant women will benefit from the said equipment donated by the UNFPA.

The P300,000 worth of medical equipment include emergency lights, delivery tables, oxygen gauges, Kelly pads, standing Bp apparatus, stethoscopes, sterilizers, dapplers, minor surgery set, bassinet and speculum.

Meanwhile, Mayor James Gordon, Jr. expressed gratitude to the UNFPA for its continuous support to the city’s efforts to provide full protection to pregnant women and their unborn babies.

It can be recalled that the City Council has signed an ordinance establishing facility-based deliveries for all pregnant mothers in Olongapo City. Ordinance No. 59 Series of 2008 is also known as the Basic Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (BEmONC) ordinance of Olongapo City.

At the start of the project, five barangay health centers namely Brgy. Barretto, New Cabalan, New Kababae, Gordon Heights and Kalaklan were provided with the medical equipment for the BEmONC project.

With the additional health centers, pregnant mothers will enjoy the service and equipment donated exclusively for them.
