To date, the PRC-AdS has already billed the provincial government for the re-agents the amount of P2.18 Million. The Provincial Blood Coordinating Council will meet on August 26 in order to discuss the request for supplementary budget from the provincial government to address the financial need for the re-agents until the end of this year, 2011.

To date, the Provincial Blood Coordinating Council, thru the PRC – AdS and the Provincial Health Office have collected 1,563 bags of blood, some 67 percent against the annual target of 2,300 bags. (PIA-Agusan del Sur)
