October is Indigenous Peoples’ Month in the Philippines. To mark this special occasion, Cartwheel Foundation (Philippines) and Cartwheel Foundation International invite you to:
Bayanihan sa Kalusugan seeks to engage with issues surrounding indigenous peoples’ (IP) health through a panel of speakers from the U.S. and the Philippines. The event offers a range of perspectives and experiences in tackling IP health in various fronts including the international, local, public, and private sectors.
Focus will be on the following themes:

This exchange of perspectives will help enrich knowledge and views on global health standards vis-à-vis local nuances that make each health picture different from the next.
