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.

According to Dr. Anthony Leachon, Philippine College of Physicians President , " we need to raise the energy level of the government ebola response team to involve more agencies and ensure a checklist is in place starting off from exit screening in West Africa."
Last Friday and Saturday, Dr. Leachon in different media interviews , strongly recommended exit screening in West Africa and quarantine for 21 days for OFWs and exit clearance through blood tests and questionnaire before traveling back to Manila given the uncontrolled entry of travelers through our different airports and sea ports.
Dr. Leachon, emphasized that " NAIA should be prepared for the influx of OFWs in the next three months with the planned voluntary or mandatory repatriation in mid November in the event of progressive rise in outbreak cases. The forthcoming Christmas season and the Papal visit in January will make the preparations more challenging in terms of resource allocations.
Controlling the Ebola virus outbreak at the source in West Africa is the most effective way to decrease international risk of transmission, according to Dr. Leachon citing a research paper published today in The Lancet by Dr. Kamran Khan, a physician and researcher at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto.
This should be the focus of our efforts in the light of the looming global epidemic on the dreaded virus," said Dr. Anthony Leachon, Philippine College of Physicians President.
In a statement released to the media today, the PCP is accelerating the mobilization of the 10,000 members to help the government in disseminating information to all stakeholders - schools, workplace , and the communities.
"We should prepare all hospitals of whatever level, to make sure health personnel and all health facilities are prepared to handle suspected cases of Ebola. We need to build new areas where the 3,000 Filipinos coming home from west Africa in November can be accommodated when the alert level is raised, and in anticipation of the Christmas holiday season," Leachon said.
Leachon said the government needs all the help it can get and the private sector should assist in creating a training program for medical experts, local medical community and other health professionals who will in turn disseminate information to the public through interactive lectures , effective communication kits and information materials. The Philippine College of Physicians has formed a Task force on Ebola to assist the government in educating the public , schools , workplace and the LGUs and in training healthcare professionals to address this epidemic.
Dr. Leachon said that while a number of countries, including Canada, the United States and England are implementing entry screening by far the most efficient approach is exit screening of passengers leaving the three West African countries that are affected by Ebola - as recommended by the World Health Organization.
