We are a health communications organization.
We believe information empowers people to positively change their lives and the society in which they belong.
Our way of communicating relevant health information shall be a reflection of our commitment to truth, integrity, fairness, professionalism, and excellence.
We shall surmount all challenges to our organization and publications so they may become the most respected in Philippine health journalism.
By all these we shall stand, and in all these we shall find fulfillment.
Education—specifically health education—never stops. Not for the average citizen who has to constantly be aware of what makes their body tick. Not for the healthcare professional who has to constantly keep abreast of the developments in their chosen field. Not for the public health official who has to keep in mind the health needs of the entire population. Not even for the most respected doctor who has been given a lifetime achievement award, or has exhausted the list of degrees anybody can attach to their name, or has been universally regarded as the greatest medical authority. In fact, health education does not stop even—or should we say, especially—for us, who have made the search and the dissemination of relevant health information our calling.
As a healthcare communications organization, we share the vision of the United Nations to achieve “Health for all.” By focusing our information dissemination efforts on healthcare professionals all over the country, we are playing our part in making relevant health information available to them, who in turn shall pass these pieces of information on to the rest of the people.
To achieve “health for all,” we are aiming to provide “healthcare information for all.”
