We are talking about first year for P40 billion," said Dr. Anthony Leachon, DOH consultant for non-communicable diseases.
Leachon underscored the importance of restructuring the tax "in a way that over the medium and long term, we achieve sustainability of revenues together with achieving health objectives."
"The amount will cover the universal health care (UHC) needs but we need more to funds safety net for farmers and workers," he said.
According to Leachon, a tax measure must ensure that essential rates will be realized - single tier specific, indexed to nominal gross domestic products growth, significant tax increase - to generate enough revenues and to bring down consumption of tobacco and alcohol products.
"We want a system that ensures regular tax rate increases, and keeps cigarettes expensive for the young and the poor whom we care so much," he said.

Dr. Tony Leachon, cardiologist and a consultant at the Manila Doctors Hospital, said the attending physician complained of the way the CIDG officer approached the survivors.
They should do it slowly],," Leachon said.
The CIDG personnel was reportedly escorted by hospital security out of the building.
"We are not questioning the help that is being given but we want a professional handling of the patients since they are still under trauma," Leachon added.
At present, six medical residents are still confined at the Manila Doctors hospital in Manila for shrapnel injuries.
The medical residents were practically shielded from the blast by one of the doctors who absorbed most of the impact of the explosion.
Leachon said the residents told doctors how Dr. Erwin Malanay, an employee of a pharmaceutical company, 'shielded' the other doctors from the shrapnels of the blast.

What is worrisome though, said Dr. Antony Leachon, internist cardiologist at the Manila Doctors Hospital, is that more and more young people, in their 30's and 40's, who should be at their most productive age, are suffering from heart diseases, stroke and cancer.
Leachon, who serves as consultant of the Department of Health on Non-Communicable Diseases, said NCD's are responsible for 63 percent of all deaths worldwide and this trend is evident in Southeast Asia and the Philippines due to globalization and urbanization.
NCD's are not exclusive to the affluent elderly patients now but they are seen across all social classes and more dominantly in the young and poor populations. The culprits, he said, are "unhealthy dietary patterns such as high calorie intake from total fats (indigenous oils and coconut oil), high consumption of sugars and sweetened beverages and low consumption of the more expensive fruits and vegetables.
Leachon, who is a recipient of a Presidential Citation in June 2010 for authoring Executive Order 595 or the Health Education Reform Order (HERO), has recommendations that consider the government's limited resources:
Leachon is pushing for the passage Reform Sin tax Law which he said would help reduce the number of smokers among the young and the poor and reduce the consumption of cigarettes among the poor. Leachon said it is important that our leaders set the example of healthy lifestyle because the people will only respond to what the leaders can give.
Dr. Leachon should not be surprised that more and more in their 30s and 40s are suffering from heart disease, stroke and cancer because as my own experienced could recall being young there is this feeling of invincibility...that these illnesses will only inflict the old and the Doc gave me that sobering reminder when I was young and reckless...he give me an option to give up my two packs a day, gluttony and heavy alcohol consumption...or die young uncomfortably...he is still my primary for the last 30 years and the look of it he is not doing what he is preaching (big tummy) and when I asked him he said he just too busy taking care of us, his patients...(he grossed million a year)...and he deserves every penny of it.
