AAI continues to provide a longer term health program in Los Banos and surrounding municipalities in the Laguna District. Water levels have receded in the area and a number of families have left evacuation centres to live with host families. Due to crowded living conditions, strained health systems and the loss of livelihoods there remains an ongoing need to provide health services.

AAI in partnership with Christian Reform World Relief Council (CRWRC), Medical Teams International (MTI), Direct Relief International (DRI) and local partners will be focusing on delivering outreach medical clinics as well as building the capacity of local health workers and community members through the delivery of trainings. A team of international health professionals along with local partners will be delivering trainings in the areas of: Hygiene Promotion, Disaster Medicine and Introduction to Humanitarian Operations.
