What is Insulin Access Program?

     The Department of Health (DOH) established the Insulin Medicines Access Program (InMAP), which was developed through a Private-Public Partnership (PPP) wherein the innovator company voluntarily offered their products at a much reduced affordable price to the DOH hospitals.

     The access program for insulin was being implemented through a consignment system in 27 DOH hospitals where only a limited number of patients, have benefited from the program.  In order to expand and reach out to the poorest sector, the DOH will now be providing insulin for all indigent diabetic patients at no cost to them. Free insulin access will be implemented in DOH Hospitals nationwide and City Health Offices

Goal
