This in support to the Implementation of Executive Order No. 2 series 2016 on “Operationalizing in the Executive Branch the People’s Constitutional Right to Information and the State Policies to Full Public Disclosure and Transparency in the Public Service and Providing Guidelines” and the Department Order No. 2017-0236 on the “Guidelines on the Implementation of Freedom of Information (FOI) Program and Open Data Initiative (ODI) in the DOH”.
The activity edifies the participants that FOI allows Filipino citizens to request any information about government transactions and operations, provided that it shall not put into jeopardy privacy and matters of national security.
