Narrative Report


The Municipality of Pilar has ten barangays which were identified as GIDA
(Geographically Isolated Disadvantaged Area) which means they are isolated due to
distance, weather conditions and transportation difficulties (upland, lowland,
landlocked, hard to reach and unserved or underserved communities). They are also
characterized by high poverty incidence and presence of vulnerable sectors.
According to the Department of Health, GIDAs refer to communities with
marginalized population physically and socio-economically separated from the
mainstream society.

The GIDA barangays of Municipality of Pilar are Comapo Capo, Millabas,

Bayasong, San Jose, Poctol, Lumbang, Guiron, San Antonio (Sapa), Mabanate,
Cagbacong and Del Rosario. They are the barangays with high incidence of poverty.
These barangays are the focus of the strategist plan that was created by our
Municipal Health Officer Dr. David R. Daza. According to the plan, there will be a
team composed of Doctor PHN, RHM and NDP assigned on each of the area. They
are tasked to visit and conduct the short meetings and discussion about how to
improve health in the Barangay. The team started through sending letters to the
Brgy. Captain to inform that the Health Team will go to his or her barangay. Every
day at around 1pm, our MHO visit one GIDA barangay to conduct short meeting
wherein there is a discussion of the plans how health services may be improved on
the barangay. The invited participants in the meetings are the local officials headed
by Brgy. Captain and Barangay health workers. The team presented the Health Data
of the barangay from 2013 up to present to see and evaluate if the performance in
health is improving or not. They also discussed some diseases that are present in
the community like Tuberculosis, Hypertension, Urinary Tract infection and Diabetes,
and how they can be cured if one is already infected. The Team encouraged the
Barangay to participate in the Programs of the Municipal Heath Office like Mobile
Blood Donation and give budget for the Nutritional Growth of the Children.

GIDA Barangays promised to participate in the activity of the Local

Government Unit and the Department Of Health through the Municipal Health
