During the event, the guest expert, Dr. Anthony Leachon, President of College of Physicians and one of the proponents of the Sin Tax Bill, highlighted the need to address the prevailing issues about the healthcare system in the Philippines, which include the increasing demand for healthcare and the low supply of healthcare workers. He also stressed the importance of educating the public and creating an environment that's conducive for healthy lifestyle.
"When people are exposed to environmental and even societal risk factors, they are more prone to develop lifestyle diseases like heart disease, chronic lung disease, stroke, and cancer," he said.

"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.
