NEWSPIX: Finally, no more doctor-less towns in Surigao Norte

Surigao del Norte will no longer have “doctorless” municipalities after a new batch of eight Doctors to the Barrios (DTTB) physicians have already been dispatched to different areas in need of doctors.

Starting this month, at least eight remaining doctorless municipalities — Burgos, Dapa, Gigaquit, Placer, Pilar, San Francisco, Socorro and San Juan District of Surigao City would have their own competent, committed, community-oriented and dedicated physicians .

The Department of Health’s DTTB rural physician deployment program encourages new doctors to serve at least two years in far-flung fifth-or sixth-class municipalities that cannot afford to have their own government doctor.
