This Nurse Saves Lives Through Health Statistics and Data

We’ve all been witness to how statistics and data play a crucial role in managing public health at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. But collecting data is one thing; what is more important and more challenging is how to use these data in achieving positive outcomes in terms of persistent health issues in the community.

Nurse IV Daniel Garcia III of the Antipolo City Health Office does not shy away from this challenge. As Program Manager of Public Health Surveillance of the City Epidemiology, Statistics, Disaster and Response Unit (CESDRU), he captures data on the ground so that the Antipolo City Government can undertake health programs and policies that are evidence-based. In the process, his work becomes a learning opportunity as he meets people from different walks of life.
