Innovations for Community Health, Inc. (InnovationsCH), together with ACCESS Health International, launched the second Kalinga Health in Mandaluyong City, November 25, 2020.
The soft opening and blessing was attended by representatives from ACCESS Health International, Mandaluyong City Health Office, and City Coordinators of the National TB Program.
Kalinga Health is a 360-degree social enterprise facility providing consultation, diagnostics, treatment, case holding, and follow-up. The new hub in Mandaluyong City hopes to bring the success of the pilot hub-and-spoke facility at Marikina City.
The Hub will act as an intermediary agency for case registration, reimbursement of public and private health insurance, and treatment support for referral partners in the private sector (Spokes). A core innovation is reforming health markets and creating opportunities to incentivize providers towards achieving the long-term vision of TB elimination.
Kalinga Health – Mandaluyong officially opened on December 7 and offered free consultation until December 18, 2020.
This project was supported by the Stop TB Partnership through its TB REACH Wave 6 Scale Up Grant Mechanism.
