Her cause has earned the support of this agency.

DIWA Party-list Rep. Emmeline Aglipay-Villar has taken it as a personal advocacy to make lupus known to the public. The politiko has launched book two of a self-help book for lupus patients at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Quezon City.

This book launch is grander, as she has won over the support of the Department of Health with Secretary Francisco Duque gracing the event with her.

“The booklet “Lupus, Kayang-kaya Ko ‘to!” is going to be distributed for free in all health centers and government hospitals all over the Philippines. It aims to raise awareness about lupus especially in areas where there is no information available about the illness,” the politiko added.

Proud to launch our second book, “Lupus, kayang-kaya ko ‘to!” yesterday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Quezon City. “Lupus, kayang-kaya ko ‘to!” is an info-graphic booklet that is written in conversational Filipino and contains concise and basic information about lupus. In partnership with the Department of Health the booklet “Lupus, Kayang-kaya Ko ‘to!” is going to be distributed for free in all health centers and government hospitals all over the Philippines. It aims to raise awareness about lupus especially in areas where there is no information available about the illness. We also launched our lupus poster which will be posted in all health centers in the Philippines. During the event Sec. Duque expressed his intentions to create a Philhealth lupus package for lupus patients and gave his commitment to include certain medicines for lupus, such as Belimumab and Hydroxychloroquine in the National Drug Formulary. This will be a big help to indigent lupus patients who cannot afford the medication for lupus. #lupus #lupuswarrior #hopeforlupusfoundation #hopeforlupus #lupuskayangkayakoto
