The Department of Health (DOH) today signed an Administrative Order No. 2012-0030, Guidelines on Foreign Surgical and Medical Mission Program in Support of Universal Health Care/Kalusugan Pangkalahatan, in the conduct of Foreign Surgical and Medical Missions (FSMMs) as a major component in the success of the current DOH thrust of Universal Health Care (Kalusugan Pangkalahatan).

According to Health Secretary Enrique T. Ona, FSMMs play an important role in the delivery of health care services, especially in attaining Universal Health Care. FSMMs are activities where medical interventions and/or surgical services are provided to selected underserved areas and communities by a foreign individual or organization in partnership with a local government unit, non-government organization, hospital or medical society. FSMM can either be a One-Time Conduct of medical Mission or an “Adopt-A-Hospital” Program.
