Devolution of basic social welfare services including health services to the local government units has adversely affected access of the unfortunate and indigent population of the country especially in far-flang barangays to adequate medical interventions. It is common knowledge that the budget for medicines from the Department of Health has been so nil that even patients confined in big and established government hospitals like EAMC, Ospital ng Maynila have to buy expensive medicines required for their treatment. What is more depressing is the situation of poor patients confined in Provincial Hospitals. Since the devolution took effect, health services have suffered budgetary setback especially in the purchase of medicines to be provided for free to poor and indigent patients in the provinces.

It is in this context that financial support in the form of Endowment Fund for Charity Patients in the Provincial/City Hospitals was approved under Board Resolution No. 005 dated 05 January 1995.
