Medical training key for sustainable capacity building during Philippine, U.S. combined exercise

Rural health care worker Melanie Loren Macinas, Purog Pinagpala, Habitat Village, examines the contents of her first aid kit during a medical outreach clinic at Barangay Macarascas, April 20. Macinas and her fellow rural health care workers attended a training session the day before to prepare for future duties. The training involved both Philippine and U.S. personnel in the lectures and covered topic relevant for basic village health and medicine. The training for rural health care workers is part of the humanitarian civic assistance (HCA) portion of Exercise Balikatan 2012 (BK12), which officially started, April 16, with the HCA portion of the exercise starting earlier on March 12, with engineering projects to build two-room classrooms at five schools within the Puerto Princesa area. The construction projects are now over 80 percent complete and are expected to be completed by April 27, 2012. BK12, in its 28th iteration, is an annual bilateral training exercise between the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the U.S. military to enhance interoperability between the two partner nations.
