The Medicines Access Program of DOH-NCPAM caters to the medicinal needs of patients who cannot afford treatment for their illnesses. This is in partnership with different private stakeholders as an answer to Millenium Development Goal 8e. Cancer meds are being given for free to patients with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) through the Cancer Warrior Foundation and to Breast Cancer Stage I-IIIA Patients through the Philippine Cancer Society Inc.. Entitlements are also given to kids with rare illnesses through the Philippine Cancer Society of Orphan Diseases. We also have innovator medicines like Insulin and Alpha-Adrenergic Blocker for Diabetics and Hypertensive Patients, respectively to be provided at a very reduced price in government hospitals.
