DOH to push for inclusion of hemophilia patients in Z package

Patients suffering from hemophilia and other bleeding disorders may soon be relieved of high costs of treatments, a Department of Health official said over the weekend.

At a gathering of hemophilia patients and their families in Glorietta Mall on Saturday, Health Undersecretary Vicente Belizario said the DOH would push for the inclusion of hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and inherited bleeding disorders in the Z Benefit Package offered to PhilHealth members.

Z Benefit Package is aimed at addressing health conditions that trigger prolonged hospitalization and very expensive treatments.

Conditions under type Z, the farthest end of the spectrum, are cases "perceived as economically and medically catastrophic" due to the seriousness of the case.

“After talking to some patients earlier today, I found out that treatment for bleeding in hemophilia patients is very costly.  We at DOH will work out that hemophilia and other bleeding disorders will be included in the Z Benefit Package,” Belizario said, rousing a loud applause from the audience.

Hundreds of persons with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders gathered in Glorietta over the weekend to commemorate the World Hemophilia Day which is celebrated around the world on April 17.

Dubbed as “Count Me In,” the two day activity was organized by the Hemophilia Association of the Philippines for Love and Service (HAPLOS), the national membership organization of persons with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.

HAPLOS president Ric Felipe, who himself has hemophilia, noted that there are only around 1,200 patients in their registry.

According to the World Hemophilia Federation, there could be around 10,000 Filipinos affected by hemophilia and around 1million more with von Willebrand Disease and other clotting factor deficiency disorders.

Hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and clotting factor deficiency disorders are  lifelong genetic medical conditions where the person’s blood lacks the ability to clot normally. 

Seemingly minor injuries can cause profuse bleeding.  Bleeding into joints and muscles causes severe pain and disability while bleeding into major organs, such as the brain, can lead to death.

Felipe said the cost of treatments for hemophilia and other bleeding disorders are very costly.

Treatment for minor bleeds such as those in joints could cost around P30,000 to P50,000 per day while serious bleeds such as those in the gastro-intestinal tract or the brain could reach hundreds of thousands to millions.

“Many patients die because they could not afford the high cost of treatments or they do not have access to treatment at all,” Felipe said.

On the other hand, despite being considered as a serious and lifelong condition, awareness for hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and other bleeding disorders remain very low.

Marvin Valladolid, 35, who was at the gathering in Glorietta said that he only found out he had severe hemophilia two weeks ago.

“Three years na po akong pabalik-balik sa ospital.  Sabi noong una may von Willebrand daw po ako. Tapos, nitong huli sabi naman hemophilia. (I’ve been in and out of the hospital in the past three years.  At first, they said I had von Willebrand. Lately, they said I have hemophilia),” he said.

Out of exasperation, Valladolid came to Manila and sought help of HAPLOS. He was advised to have himself checked at the National Kidney and Transplant Institute and it was found out that he had severe hemophilia.

“Huli na po ang lahat, ngayon lumpo na po ako (It’s too late, now I’m already crippled),” Valladolid lamented.   

Unlike other conditions, Hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and other bleeding disorders receive little public awareness and attention. The World Hemophilia Day is an opportunity for the bleeding disorder community to come together, speak out, and focus on the need to improve and maintain treatment.

“Count Me In” lead campaigner Andrea Echavez said the event was also aimed as a call to action to those with hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and other bleeding disorders to be more active and be included in the National Hemophilia Registry. 

“By knowing our numbers, the government, doctors and organizations like ours could strategize more on a way forward in addressing our concerns,” Echavez, who has von Willebrand Disease, said.

Count Me In Hemophilia Awareness Campaign was organized by HAPLOS and the Philippine Children’s Medical Center and supported by Glorietta, BusinessMirror Group of Publications and  Novo Nordisk Hemophilia Foundation.

Even when Sofia V. Relosa was still studying at La Salle College in Antipolo, she kept on dreaming of having her own business. Her boyfriend then and husband now, Chino Relosa, enjoyed buying and selling stuff so they could afford to go out on dates. She finished her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education but would continue, together with her boyfriend, to sell various items in bazaars. She was determined to start her own business while still working as Training and Recruitment Manager for Robinsons Communities for 2 years.

Sofia admits that she’s quite lazy when it comes to following beauty regimens. “ I don’t want to use a lot of stuff on my skin which was a huge influence in the process of creating our soap,” says Sofia. This was going to be the all-in-one soap to have beautiful skin.

Sofia started the business as a sideline and sold glutathione injections and other whitening products on Facebook. She will eventually leave her 9-to-6 job after 2 years of part-timing and pursue a full-time job as an entrepreneur. Her glutathione soap started when she gave it out to clients who availedof her glutathione injection packages. It was the time when there would be an influx of competitors for whitening products. “The first batch of the soap was not meant for selling. It was merely a come-on for our glutathione injections. After six months of giving it away for free, our clients finally convinced us to sell it separately,” shares Sofia. This eureka moment created the birth of the SVR Infinity Soap.

After much consideration and with the intention of making their clients happy, she launched Sofia’s Glutathione Soap with Kojic and Collagen and sold it at one hundred pesos per bar. “ The main ingredients of our fabulous soap are Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Glutathione, Collagen and Kojic Acid,” Sofia adds. SVR worked hard for their FDA approval. When they got it, it added the assurance of an increased quality in her glutathione soap with better skin lightening benefits.

soap angle

Glutathione is a natural anti-oxidant that eradicates toxins or free radicals in the body and inhibits the melanin formation and eliminates melasma, hyper pigmentation, uneven skin tone, freckles, and dark spots which results to a natural skin lightening.Collagen is anatural protein that binds skin tissues to avoid fine lines or wrinkles. Kojic Acid is another form of skin lightening element and is a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungus that is found to cure melasma, dark spots, and acne.Vitamins E and C promote natural skin repair. Both neutralize free radicals and aids in the development of your body’s natural glutathione.

As more people found out about the soap, there was a lot of positive feedback from customers. Sofia would take screen shots and post these on their Facebook page. “ It was a way for us to thank our clients for sharing their experience. Andfortunately with those posts, we would generate more orders. It became an effective marketing strategy on all our social media sites and networks,” relates Sofia.Today, SVR Infinity has more than 400 resellers and 50 distributors with Zalora.com and Dapat Generics Pharmacy as the latest addition to their growing family.

“Our lovely clients, resellers and distributors always give us great feedback about their experience in using or selling our soap. Their words of appreciation and love are something we look forward to everyday. It’s the very reason why we work harder and stay happy,”Sofia adds.

Ford Reveals All New Everest and New Expedition Platinum at the 11thManila International Auto Show

· Ford showcases most extensive line-up of vehicles in the Philippines with the reveal of the all-new Everest and the launch of the new Expedition Platinum

· The all-new Ford Everest will be imported from Thailand and will be available in the Philippines in Q3

· The new Ford Expedition Platinum will officially be on sale starting July at a retail price of Php 3,488,000

MANILA, Philippines, 9 April 2014– Ford Philippines once again takes center stage at the 11th Manila International Auto Show with the reveal of the all-new Everest and the launch of the new Expedition Platinum, completing the line-up of segment-leading cars, SUVs, and trucks in the Ford pavilion.

Joining the Everest and Expedition Platinum are seven other popular Ford nameplates. These include the exciting Fiesta equipped with the award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost® engine, the dynamic Focus that blends smart and safety technology seamlessly, the ground-breaking EcoSport compact urban SUV that redefined a whole new segment, the Escape and Explorer Sport that bring style and power together with their fuel-efficient EcoBoost® engines, and the best-selling Ranger that tops its segment in the market.  The iconic Mustang that continues to excite generations after generation will also be another highlight at the Ford stand, showcasing the 50 Years Limited Edition.

These vehicles will be on full display during the four-day motor show event as a testament of the company’s on-going commitment to deliver quality, fuel-efficient, safe and smart vehicles to its customers in the Philippines.

“We are very excited to showcase our most complete line-up of vehicles to date. We want to display the very best of Ford and that means bringing in our One Ford vehicles from the global stage and into the homes of our loyal Filipino customers,” said Kay Hart, managing director, Ford Philippines.

All-New Everest

The reveal of the all-new Ford Everest marks a new direction for one of the most sought after Ford SUVs. It redefines the SUV segment with its revamped bold design, advanced technology, stunning off-road and on-road capability, and a refined interior. Completely new inside and out, the all-new Everest is set to challenge what customers can expect from their traditional SUV.

Tough and technologically sound, the all-new Everest brings all the qualities of a One Ford vehicle together while staying true to its reputation of being highly durable and versatile.  Strong, smart, and stylish, the Everest embodies Ford’s fun-to-drive DNA to deliver rewarding and dynamic on-road handling and true off-road capability, offering no compromises on refinement and comfort.

“The all-new Ford Everest clearly reflects our global SUV capability. With a rugged, sculptural design that reflects its unshakeable toughness and technological prowess, the all-new Everest blends smart, strength and style to bring consumers a remarkable and versatile SUV with true off-road capability,” said Hart.

The all-new Ford Everest will be manufactured out of Rayong, Thailand. More details on pricing and availability will be shared during its official launch next month.

New Ford Expedition Platinum

The new Ford Expedition Platinum is the most powerful yet fuel-efficient model to date since first being introduced in 1996. The new Platinum series further elevates the Expedition experience with an updated look and finish, both inside and out, giving the SUV a grander and more refined stance. 

With the Platinum series bringing the Expedition into a whole new arena of design and style, the exterior has been updated with a new grille with LED fog lamps, setting that aggressive tone that perfectly complements the flagship of Ford SUVs.  It also features a redesigned rear hatch and subtle, chrome-tipped exhaust pipes and 22-inch wheels, making it the largest and boldest offering in the segment today.

Inside, the updated interior of the Expedition Platinum incorporates a fresh center stack to accommodate an 8-inch touch screen for SYNC with MyFord Touch. The driver information cluster also features two full-color 4.2-inch LCD screens. The Platinum series is tailored with lush Brunello leather seating with accented with French-seamed stitching.

Expedition_2 Expedition_5

“The Expedition Platinum is a capable full-size utility vehicle for our discerning customers who want the very best in an SUV. It is the ultimate expression of class and refinement,” said Minnie Valencia-Bustamante, vice president for marketing and sales, Ford Philippines.

At the heart of the vehicle is a 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine, which promises more power, efficiency and performance using direct injection and twin turbochargers, delivering a total output of370 PS of power and 569 Nm of torque.  This gives drivers not just better fuel economy but more power and torque on demand at very low engine speeds.

To maximize performance and control, the vehicle is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission featuring a manual mode that allows the driver to use a shift-mounted rocker switch to select the desired gear.

The North American Expedition Platinum series is the only Ford model to offer a continuous controlled damping suspension that allows drivers to select from 3 drive models – comfort, normal, and sport.  The Expeditionremains to be the only full-size utility vehicle not classified as a luxury offering to feature an independent rear suspension. This helps deliver more confident ride and handling characteristics, and allows for the lower, more convenient fold-flat third-row bench seat.

It comes with the latest popular technologies like SYNC® with MyFord Touch®, push-button start, Blind Spot Information System® and Ford’s innovative electric power-assisted steering to give passengers both convenience and safety while on the road. 

Other new technologies on the Expedition Platinum include a 10-speaker, 700-watt Sony audio System, Intelligent Access with push-button start, rearview camera, seven-color, interior ambient LED lighting, and Ford truck apps to help make trailer towing and off-road driving easier.

“With a refreshed new look and a quieter cabin with state-of-the-art smart technologies, the Ford Expedition Platinum is guaranteed to give our customers the safest and most premium riding experience,” said Valencia-Bustamante.

The new Ford Expedition Platinum will officially be on sale starting in July at a retail price of Php 3,488,000 at Ford dealerships nationwide. It will be available in the following colors: White Platinum, Tuxedo Black and Magnetic Metallic.

Visit the Ford line-up at the Manila International Auto Show at the World Trade Center, Pasay City from April 9 to 12, 2015.
