Occupational Health Program

The Occupational Health Program primarily aims to prevent and control occupational diseases, work-related diseases, and injuries among workers in all occupations. It initially focuses on sectors with a high risk of exposure to the different types of hazards with limited or no access to occupational health services or support from the government. Among these sectors are public health workers, informal sector workers, workers in agriculture, transport, and small-scale mining. To date, occupational health and safety are institutionalized for the public sector workers through the joint initiatives of the program and its counterparts from the other National Government Agencies. The program facilitates the increased accessibility of primary and specialized occupational health services through the Universal Healthcare Law.
