Department of Health Secretary Janette P. Loreto-Garin, MD, MBA-H

One of the Department of Health programs that I really appreciated being implemented for kids was the Dengue Vaccine for the Grade 4 public school students through the DOH school-based immunization program. Just recently, my 9 year old daughter had her first shot of the dengue vaccine. Hopefully, she will be able to complete the 3 doses of the vaccine so that I will not worry much about this fastest spreading mosquito-borne viral disease. This is just one of the innovative health program of DOH Secretary Janette P. Loreto-Garin that she introduced recently over a million 9-year old Grade 4 public school students in NCR,Regions III and IV-A. 


That is why, I was delighted when I was invited to have a talk with the current DOH Secretary Janette P. Loreto-Garin. The talk was held last May 14 at Outback Steakhouse, Glorietta 4, Makati City. I had the chance to know more of her, being a physician, a national legislator, a leader, and Health Secretary. 


Health Secreatry Janette Garin is a physician and a national legislator for nine years, leading the Magna Carta and Reproductive Health Law, Amendment to the Physicians Act and other key health measures in the Philippines Congress. Her capacity as a natural leader was bravely honored and tested in the Congress, having become among the youngest Representatives who held various senior leadership post while effectively helping in the guiding of critical legislation and bringing up productively that characterized the 13th and 15th Congress.
