Muslim Doctor express her delight over Duterte fulfilling his promise to provide cheaper medicines for Filipinos.

Facebook netizen Rolaiza Mimi Singayao recently took to the popular social media site to express her delight over President Rodrigo Duterte fulfilling his promise to provide cheaper medicines for Filipinos.

In her post, Singayao said that it was only President Duterte who had the guts to finally refuse getting medicines from big multinational pharmaceutical companies. These big companies is the reason why medicines in the Philippines have been expensive.

According to Singayao, the administration has started getting the much needed medicines from companies in India.

Singayao also shared how when she was still fulfilling her medical residency, the mother of one of her patients came to her saying how they cannot afford getting the medicines for her children.

It was then that Singayao felt extreme compassion towards the mother, as well to the rest of the families that she knows struggles to get the medicines that they need in order to stay alive.


She also shared that there are a lot of times she felt helpless holding the hand of a dying patient simply because they cannot administer the necessary medicines to them because they did not have enough money to pay for it.

All of these harms will no longer happen, said Singayao, because of the efforts of the President to resist the call of capitalism.

"BAYAD NA SI MAYOR

Dagdag sa malalaking kalaban ni President Duterte ang mga higanteng multinational pharmaceutical companies. Hindi sila happy sa gagawin ng administration na to na pagkuha ng mas mura at epektibong mga gamot mula sa India.

Manigas kayo! This is it! A gov't that finally has the damn guts to pull the rug under your well-heeled shoes!

We deal with biggies and oligarchs. Mata sa mata. This President is NOT THEIR BOY. He is nobody's boy.

The President promised and so, we shall get far cheaper medicines! Sa wakas, matapos ang napakaraming mga taon that the other administrations were apathetic or just can't or doesn't want to deal with the issue of horrendous prices of medicines in the Philippines.


These drug companies held the Filipinos practically in hostage with the doctors knowingly or unknowingly as their accomplices. The Generic Law made a mute decor, rendered toothless and unable to protect the interests and LIVES especially of the poor.

Now, this "promdi" , bastos at "walang finesse" mayor from the Mindanao will once again shake an industry that has blood in its hands. Sobrang mahal mga gamot ninyo! Ayaw ni Mayor ng ganyan. Gusto nya komportable at may gamot si Pilipino. Nag go na sya sa India, announced that one of his purpose is for India's pharmaceuticals. Yes! The floodgates for cheaper medicines to the Filipinos has opened.

Mas maraming mga Pilipinong may sakit ang mag su survive at mabubuhay.

I-SHARE KO:

During my residency training in Internal Medicine, may pasyenteng literal na iniwan ng ina sa akin. "Uuwi na ako sa isla. May mga anak pa ako na maliliit. Wala kaming pera pambili ng gamot. Ikaw na magpalibing sa anak ko."

Lumaban kami. Nag nakaw uli ng gamot (ninanakaw ko mga gamot ng pasyente. Patayin nyo na ako, hindi ko sasabihin paano nangyari). Pero, nalagas din sya, lumisan din. Ungol ako ng ungol sa tabi nya. " Mahal ka ng Nanay mo." Paulit ulit. At dun, may bahagi sa pagkatao ko na namatay din.

So, patay na. Sa akin iniwan. Saan ko ipapalibing? Tawag kami sa pinakamalapit na mosque, dumating mga kapatid at maayos na nailibing ang labi. Sila na rin nag inform sa pamilya sa isla.

Malubha na siyang dumating sa amin, walang access sa basic na serbisyong medikal. 8 hours bumihaye sa once a week na lantsa mula isla patungong Zamboanga hermosa. Noong nasa pagamutan na, walang pantustos sa gamot.


I stood in the Ward, clinging to his scrawny lifeless hand. With muted curses in my lips. Sinong sisigawan ko? Imperyalismo? Burukrata-kapitalismo? Ayan, mag doktor ka pa, sabi ko sa sarili. Hindi ko alam na may sakit sa dibdib na ganun. Na hindi pala naghihilum.

Ayaw kong magpalibing pa uli ng pasyente. Sumpa man. Ngunit naulit at naulit at naulit pa eto.

Kaya, bayad na si Mayor sa akin. Papasukin ng gobyernong ito ang safe, cost-effective, mas murang gamot. Sabay sa pag aayos at pag baka sa korapsyon sa DOH at mga iba pang ahensya. Mas may chance at laban mga pasyente. May gamot at kalinga.

Kaya salamat, maraming salamat, Mr. President!

Bayad na bayad na ako!"
