    • THE REALITIES ON THE GROUND  Continuing Professional Education  Plenty of technical trainings, none, or at least a few, on Management/Leadership Training  Trainings don’t trickle down to the LGU level  LGU’s don’t all the time allow their RHPs/MHOs to attend trainings for many reasons  Postgraduate courses available to DTTB’s (only?)
    • THE REALITIES ON THE GROUND  Logistics, Equipment and Other Technical Support  While EPI vaccines/anti- TB meds are provided free, not all medicines are made available  Devolved health system – responsibility to provide health facilities rests on LGU  Not all DOH reps are functional
