On 18 May 2017, from the first forum in May 2016 and with its continued efforts to bring together experts and leaders in the field of healthcare, PHAP and its partners organized the second healthcare forum with the theme, "Bringing Health to Juan and Juana: Universal Healthcare in the Communities."
This year's forum is aimed at highlighting the role of the local governments in achieving better health for all Filipinos through providing primary health care.
The forum was attended by representatives from the government, LGUs, industry associations, and academe, among others, to promote and present discussions and recommendations to advance health in the national agenda.
The group heard speeches and received presentations from key health and government representatives; among which include PHAP Executive Director Teodoro Padilla, DOH Secretary Paulyn Ubial, DBM Secretary Benjamin Diokno, and Senator Ralph Recto.
