One of the factors that is needed to improve the Nation’s health care status is through the provision of good and efficient primary health care  facilities in the local government units. Health Futures Foundation, Inc. (HFI) headed by former DOH Secretary Dr. Jaime Z. Galvez Tan, a non-governmental organization who advocates the improvement of the primary health care for all Filipinos, has committed to pursue a program on the Nationwide modernization of local government barangay health centers.

Among the advocacies of the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP) is to strengthen its ties with the National and Local Government Units through its various service oriented project collaboration with the different national and local government agencies. With that, UAP has signified its intention to assist the HFI in its Nationwide Barangay Health Centers modernization project,

The partnership aims to establish an alliance between HFI and UAP to promote the sustainable design and development of a modernized health care facility through  the design and renovation of barangay health.

The partnership involves the following scope wherein HFI shall implement a nationwide assessment, evaluation, design and renovation  of the physical site and facilities of barangay health centers and on the other hand, UAP shall mobilize its 137 chapters to assist the HFI in conducting the assessment, evaluation, design, renovation or construction  of the physical site and facilities of barangay health centers.

As a result of the Memorandum of Agreement forged between the two parties, several barangay health centers were constructed and facilitated by the different UAP chapters. The most recent ones are the four barangay health centers located in Samar which were coordinated by UAP District C3 under the stewardship of District Director Joel Jao.

Completed barangay health centers are located in Brg. Tinabanan, Marabut, Samar and in Brgy. Palactad, Quinapondan, Eastern Samar
