” In the agreement, the OVP will issue a guarantee letter under our special medical assistance program to any qualified patient referred by our volunteer doctors at Bayanihan E-Konsulta,” the Vice-President said.

“In turn, QualiMed facilties will then further assess and prescribe the medicine to the patient,” she explained.

The first shipment of Molnupiravir arrived in the country last November 17, the first in Southeast Asia.

“We are truly humbled and grateful to the QualiMed Health Network for trusting us with this partnership, helping us extend our reach in delivering aid to more of our kababayans in need,” the Vice-President said.
