The Muntinlupa City Council approved Resolution 2023-238 authorizing Mayor Ruffy Biazon to enter into a memorandum of agreement with the Medical Center Muntinlupa Inc., to provide free breast ultrasound and mammography tests.
"We definitely welcome this development as this enables the city government to address the problem of breast cancer head-on. By early detection, we hope to save many families from the heartbreak of losing mothers and women family members to an otherwise preventable disease," said Biazon.
Under the agreement, the city government will shoulder the cost of the tests of patients and target beneficiaries identified by KMAC and verified by the Gender and Development (GAD) Office.
A discounted package rate of P3,200 for mammogram and breast ultrasound will be provided by MCM and shouldered by the city government.
