Health Experts Raise Alarm on Dengue Crisis Next Generation Dengue Vaccine

  Dengue fever, a mosquito-borne viral infection, continues to be a major public health concern in many parts of the world. As temperatures rise and mosquito populations surge, it's crucial to equip ourselves with knowledge about this potentially life-threatening disease. Dengue remains to be a major public health problem in the Philippines. But it is reassuring to know that medical science has continued to develop and is working on real solutions, such as new vaccines and other novel and ingenious solutions that address the dengue crisis head on.

Ginhawa sa Kalusugan Ngayong Tag-Ulan: Be ready for the rainy season with these essentials

  As the refreshing rains replace the scorching summer heat, a season shift brings both relief and health challenges. While the rain offers a welcome respite, it also ushers in health concerns that become more prominent during this time. The shift in seasons usually affects me personally because it can impact my health and that of my family.

Moreover, I've experienced firsthand how the extreme afternoon heat followed by rain in the evening can lead to illnesses like the flu and colds.

So, the change in seasons hits close to home as it brings with it the potential for health issues, making it a time when we need to take extra precautions.  And as we co

A quick trip down holiday memory lane

  Can you feel it? The cold breeze, holiday songs, festive decorations, and colorful lights and lanterns… it’s Christmas season, everybody! Filipinos are known to celebrate Christmas the longest – it starts with the BER months and ends in January. Along with parties and get-togethers, we also have different traditions to celebrate the yuletide season. Since I was a kid, I associated grapes and round fruits with the holiday season. My grandma used to buy a lot of grapes during the BER months and placed them on our table along with other fruits. The grapes were also hung on windows and doors to help bring in good fortune for the coming year. I remember her asking me who was eating the grapes as she noticed that they were slowly “disappearing” and I said it must have been my aunties and our cat. But… It was silly me all along, of course! My aunties ended up buying more, much to my delight.   For Christmas eve, my aunties and grandma would make their delicious fruit salad – a huge can of f
