The HI-5 Summit serves as the starting ground in boosting the agency’s campaigns on said health concerns. It plans to provide people improved access to health care services and ensure that these services will be utilized and enjoyed especially by those who belong under the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) and to those who live in far-flung communities.

During the summit and caravan, health information was provided to the stakeholders, especially to pregnant and lactating women here.
