PhilHealth-DOH Nationwide Run 2013


On February 17, 2013, roads in 18 sites across the nation will be taken over as the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, better known as PhilHealth, stages the first simultaneous nationwide running event dubbed as PhilHealth Run 2013.

Drawing inspiration from the two highly successful running events organized by its regional centers in Mindanao, the PhilHealth Run 2013: Nationwide Run for Mother and Child Protection promises to be a memorable sporting event as it aims to engage near 100,000 professional and amateur runners from different parts of the country – all running simultaneously with one aim in mind: Universal Health Care in the Philippines.

Runners will converge in 18 major cities that include: Manila, Baguio, Dagupan, Tuguegarao, Clark, Malolos, Sta. Rosa, Batangas, Legazpi, Iloilo, Cebu, Tacloban, Zamboanga, Iligan, Davao, Koronadal, Butuan, and Marawi.

Through this momentous event, PhilHealth aims to rally the entire nation as it helps stage a push towards bringing universal health care a reality. With universal coverage, every Filipino, regardless of status, is given the financial access and support to quality health care and services.

The Philippine Children’s Medical Center, a health care facility for diseases of children, and the Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital, a maternal and newborn tertiary hospital, have been chosen as national beneficiaries for this first simultaneous nationwide running event. Other health care facilities catering to mother and child health in each of the major regional run sites have also been identified as beneficiaries.
