Dr. Leda Hernandez, DOH national filariasis coordinator, said that during the 2003 anti-filariasis campaign in Bicol, the regional accomplishment was placed at 85.04 per cent coverage, slightly exceeding the World Health Organization (WHO) benchmark. "While the implementation was generally smooth and well-organized, there were some isolated incidence of resistance from some sectors thus affecting the campaign," Hernandez bared during the regional planning for the filariasis elimination program held at the DOH Bicol regional office in Legazpi City. Results from the 2003 mass treatment showed about 3,429,632 persons or 85.04 per cent of the Bicol population were treated broken down to Albay - 809,544 (87.6 per cent),; Legazpi City - 108,145 (68.7 per cent); Camarines Norte - 381,993 (81.6 per cent); Camarines Sur - 1,188,459 (89.0 per cent); Iriga City - 87,313 (103.6 per cent); Naga City - 125,303 (85.9 per cent); Catanduanes - 173,966 (89.6 per cent); Sorsogon - 556,912 (85.4 per cent); and Masbate - 66,454 (89.0 per cent). "Our objective is to eliminate lymphatic filariasis in Bicol by year 2010," Hernandez told the 48 participants to the planning session, coming from the different municipal, city and provincial health offices in Bicol. According to Hernandez the national campaign against filariasis is going-on in thirty-six endemic areas in the country.
