MANILA -- The Department of Health (DOH) on Monday appealed to the private sector to donate medicines and medical supplies for victims of typhoon Yolanda-affected areas as most of their medical supplies have been used up.

A total of P15 million has so far been spent by the agency to provide medicines, medical supplies, cot beds, among others, and the department needs additional supplies, a top health official said.

“We are depleted. We had (the incident in) Zamboanga, Bohol, and (now) we have this (typhoon Yolanda). If we get hit by another big one, our stores are (already) depleted; we are still purchasing our goods,” said DOH Undersecretary Dr. Teodoro Herbosa in an interview.

“We appeal for additional medicines and hospital supplies to be donated to the DOH through our warehouse. We hope the private sector can channel some to us,” he added.

The health undersecretary said DOH can be reached at hotline number 711-1002 for donations.

Presently, more teams both local and foreign are on their way to Tacloban to assist in DOH medical operations and will be staying for about seven to 10 days.

Because hospital personnel have been treating patients for three to four days straight without breaks, new teams will be replacing them, Dr. Herbosa said.

This will allow the personnel to go to their families, have their rest while the new teams continue to provide medical and health services in the typhoon-ravaged areas, he said.
