Duque to go back to teaching after DOH term

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III wants to pursue teaching after his post at the Department of Health ends.

“Marami akong plano. I wanna go back to the private sector, I want to help run the family university in Dagupan City where I will also teach,” Duque said.

“I will teach and I will help grow and internationalize the family-owned university,” he added.

Duque used to teach in the university’s College of Medicine.

“I used to teach in our College of Medicine so ‘yun ang gagawin ko [so that’s what I’m going to do and I want to do Universal Healthcare,’ yung modules and I want this introduced in the medical curriculum, ‘yung Universal Healthcare,” he said.

“Para bata pa, alam na nila, may appreciation na kung ano ba itong Universal Health Care, how do you implement this, what is the roadmap for the Philippine Universal Healthcare,” he added.
