With the 2022 Philippine elections coming up, several people share suggestions on how future leaders can prioritize the health and safety of Filipinos

MANILA, Philippines – The 2022 Philippine elections are fast approaching. 

To get a glimpse of the #StoryOfTheNation, Rappler’s civic engagement arm MovePH and its partners asked Filipinos to share what issues in health and pandemic response they think future leaders should act on.

Among the issues they raised was the need for future leaders to prioritize the health and safety of the Filipinos. According to some Filipinos, this can manifest in the provision of adequate funding that will help the government to provide free and accessible health care to Filipinos, as well as, proper wages, and just benefits for healthcare workers.

Others, meanwhile, emphasized how future leaders must address the country’s acute need for more hospitals and medical facilities in the provinces to boost accessibility.
