Ex-Senator Flavier dies of multiple organ failure

Friday, 31 October 2014 00:00 Published in Headlines

Former Senator and Health Secretary Juan Flavier died of multiple organ failure while confined at the National Kidney Transplant Institute in Quezon City last Thursday.
Reports said he died around 4 p.m. from compli-cations from pneumonia. He was 79.
Before serving the upper chamber in 1995 until 2007, Flavier was appointed Health secretary by former President Fidel V. Ramos in 1992.

He became famous for his slogan “Let’s DoH it.”
Among the programs he promoted were the Yosi Kadiri campaign against smoking; Oplan Alis Disease, a massive immunization campaign that eventually led to the World Health Organization declaring the Philippines polio-free; the Sangkap Pinoy campaign against malnutrition; and the “Doctors to the Barrios” program, which deploys fresh graduates of medical schools to poor and remote municipalities.
But also during his term as Health chief, Flavier received criticism from the Catholic Church due to his campaign to promote contraceptives.
As a senator, he authored and sponsored health-related legislation, including the Traditional Medicine Law, the Clean Air Act, the Philippine Nursing Act of 2002, and the Tobacco Regulation Act.
Malacañang extended its deep sympathies to the family of the late secretary, describing Flavier as “an exemplary Filipino leader.”
“We join the Filipino people in mourning the death of former Senator and Health Secretary Juan Flavier. As a public servant, he championed the cause of countryside development and upgrading the quality of public health care,” presidential Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. yesterday said in a statement.
“He served with integrity and endeared himself to the by dint of his humility,” he added.
