The cellphone will be used by the community to reach Dr. Cagape when medical consultation is needed. A tarpaulin printed with symptoms of illnesses and their corresponding “text codes” was posted at the health centers. Upon verifying the information, Dr. Capage would text back the prescriptions to the health center in-charge who would release the medicines prescribed to the patient. The health centers are stocked with medicines from donors. According to Dr. Cagape, more health centers like this would be put up soon in the outskirts of Malapatan.
