Manila Doctors Hospital equips officers to uphold its policy on zero tolerance on sexual harassment

One of the leading centers of health and wellness in the Philippines, Manila Doctors Hospital is the healthcare affiliate of the Metrobank Foundation. The Hospital has a strong Corporate Social Responsibility thrust evident in its various programs which includes Out-Patient Services, In-Patient Services, In-house Surgical Programs, External Medical missions, School Health Program (SHARED), Community Health Program (FORGE), program for the environment (Green Rebellion and the MDH Envicom), program on women’s health and development (Men Caring for Women), disaster response (REHDI), volunteer blood donation program (ADD LIFE), program for holistic health partnerships (MDH CSRO Circle of Partners), and its life skills program (POWER UP). MDH is recertified as an ISO 9001:2008 institution and recognized as the first private hospital in Asia to be accredited by Accreditation Canada International.

Speaker for the seminar, Atty. Minerva “June” Ambrosio, Director of the National Center for Legal Aid of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines and President of Child Justice League (seated right side),  answers questions of MDH employees during the Anti-Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Orientation Seminar. 
Manila Doctors Hospital (MDH) recently conducted the “Republic Act 7877: Anti-sexual Harassment Act of 1995; A discussion for health care workers” orientation/seminar for its officers and managers as part of the hospital’s commitment to the said law and the hospital’s Men Caring for Women (MCW) campaign.

The seminar aims to equip the officers of MDH on how to prevent and respond to sexual harassment that may occur in the workplace.

It is also one of MDH’s actions to solidify its commitment to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), a global network of corporations and organizations with 10 principles focusing on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.

MDH is the first hospital in the Philippines to become a reporting member of the UNGC.
