THE PhilHealth Regional Office VI was awarded as the Best National Statistics Month (NSM) Agency during the 28th NSM Closing and Awarding ceremony held last October 26, 2017 at Casa Real, Iloilo City.
This year’s celebration focused on the theme, “Facts and Figures of the Future: Statistics for Evidence-Based Decisions Towards AmBisyon Natin 2040.” It was participated in by 58 agencies all over the region. The Best NSM Agency Award is the highest recognition given to a participating agency in the month-long NSM activity held every year.
Apart from the Best NSM Agency award, PhilHealth also garnered several awards, namely, 2nd place in the Statistical Bulletin Board; Best NSM T-shirt Design by Lester Adrian Segovia; and 1st place in the Regional Statistics Committee (RSC) Logo Contest by France Gose. The winning entry of Gose will be used as the official logo of the Regional Statistics Committee in Western Visayas.
“We highly encourage everyone to take time and read our Statistical Bulletin Board for it reveals data that are helpful to our members and stakeholders. In behalf of the team, I congratulate everyone for a very creative and passion-filled output,” said Lourdes F. Diocson, PhilHealth VI Regional Vice President.
