This was disclosed yesterday by Dr. Julius Drilon, chief of the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City, who said the sin tax allocation of P12.9 billion for universal health care in 2013 will be doubled this year.

He said that last year, the CLMMRH received about P17 million in PDAF allocations from congressmen and senators to assist indigent patients, and there is still a balance of P6 million available. moremoremore
