Women’s health takes centerstage at The Medical City Iloilo as the hospital’s Women’s Health Center was formally launched recently to cater the needs of women in Iloilo and in neighboring provinces.
TMC Iloilo’s Women’s Health Center primarily aims to empower women not only in their crafts, but also in their health, acknowledging the important role they play in the society.
In the Philippines, women’s health considers a number of facets. In the local setting, while Iloilo is developing into a highly urbanized city, the transition poses a risk for more non-communicable diseases such as cancer for people to develop. Neoplasm or cancer is on the top list which causes women morbidity in the country with breast and cervical cancers as the most common types.
