DOJ, CIW team up with Huawei, mWell for PDL health and wellness

19 February 2024

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Correctional Institution for Women (CIW) forged a partnership with Huawei Technologies Philippines, Inc. and mWell – Metro Pacific Health Tech Corporation in a bid to advance healthcare access of Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDLs) at the CIW prison facility in Mandaluyong City.

Undersecretaries Margarita Gutierrez and Deo Marco led the ceremonial turnover of equipment from Huawei and mWell to the CIW to be used for the launching of a digital healthcare platform focused on providing PDLs an accessible health and wellness system despite physical and legal limitations/restrictions in respect to their service of jail time.

Health services to be offered include teleconsultation, interpretation of lab results, medical prescriptions, 24/7 access to a health professional and many more.

“It is the right of every human being to have access to a reliable, free and speedy healthcare, it is the most basic aspect of humanity which should be accorded not only to those who are free but to those who are not, as well,” said Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin C. Remulla.

“We thank Huawei and mWell for a noble cause of making available their services to our women PDLs,” the Secretary stressed.
