REVISITING GENDER AND DEVELOPMENT PERSPECTIVES IN RIZALMED
Last March 24, 2022 RizalMed PETRO conducted a Learning & Development Activity entitled “Revisiting Gender and Development Perspective in Rizal Med”. The workshop was attended by the Rizal Med MANCOM, headed by our Medical Center Chief, Dra. Maria Rica Lumague and the Rizal Med GAD-TWG, along with the subject matter expert Prof. Virginia N. Bactad.
The main objective of the workshop was to enhance the implementation of Gender-Responsive policies, programs, activities, and projects in Rizal Medical Center. The workshop was indeed a success. A lot of good insights and suggestions were raised and made respectively during the deliberation of GAD’s Plan and Budget for 2021-2022 including the GAD Accomplishment Report for 2021. This workshop would also help the RizalMed GAD Focal Point System in improving the budget utilization of GAD’s fund towards achieving a Gender Responsive Healthcare Institution.
