Embracing Community-Managed Primary Healthcare

Spent a few weeks with Dr. Moon Maglana to help document the wonderful work that AKKAP (Alternatibong Katilingbanong Kalambo-ang Panglawas) has been doing in a fair chunk of North Cotabato, Compostela Valley, Bukidnon and the Davao Peninsula since 1997. The attached PDF was written in order to be shared with partners at an anthroposophic medical conference in Dornach, Switzerland, but all this material could easily be turned into a book or manual of the amazing things they’ve been doing sans external funding, without fanfare. English is a necessary evil for external readers, but we need more materials in Tagalog and Cebuano for community users. I wish I could have more time to work with them.

Someday.

  1. Hi Ica, very nice blog, congratulations. Dr. Moon Maglana is an old friend whose phone no., at least what I have, seems to no longer work. Appreciate it if you can share her new no. directly to my email address. We’d like to invite her team again to give a workshop similar to what we had 10 years ago. Thank you and best wishes. — Grace
