Medical Support Fellowship (M.S.F.)

Philippines comes #11 in number of fatalities due to hypertension. Diabetes is the 4th most deadly disease, with 3.5 million cases in 2015. These 2 chronic diseases can cause other serious health issues, especially in urban poor communities. Besides a lack of knowledge about the disease, other risk factors such as diet, limited options for food, obesity, lack of physical activity, and smoking and drinking alcohol contribute to a higher prevalence of hypertension and diabetes. Even if they do receive local diagnosis and prescription of maintenance medication, compliance to medication is poor because of their financial situation and the inaccessibility of nearby health facilities. BL MSF, in partnership with Medical and Dental mission teams, came up with the idea of tracking and supporting people diagnosed with hypertension and type 2 Diabetes.

Medical Assistance Program (M.A.P.)

Through the years of encountering urban poor communities, we’ve seen neglected health issues which leads to worsening conditions. Due to financial problems, health status awareness becomes the lowest priority among the urban poor, even among our local leaders and house churches. Our goal is to enable people to respond to their medical needs to prolong life and increase health awareness. We do this by giving one-time financial assistance to selected families.

TB Program

Tuberculosis is the 6th leading cause of illness and 5th leading cause of death among Filipinos, because of delayed diagnosis and treatment, ignorance about the illness, shame and financial issues. Through DOTS (Directly Observed Treatment Short Course) in partnership with local health centers, we aim to increase case detection and cure rate by expanding the coverage of local Community Health Volunteers. In doing so, we help people overcome barriers to appropriate medical care.50
