Webinar #87 “COVID-19 Medications: Epektibo Ba?”
Special Topic

The Omicron variant is now the dominant SARS-CoV-2 variant in the Philippines. Along with the rise of these variants of concern, other COVID-19 medications have sprung up such as molnupiravir, paxlovid, newer monoclonal antibodies, etc.
How are we supposed to use these medications judiciously and how do we make sure that these latest medications are available and accessible to everyone? What are the dangers of self-medication and online buying of certain unrecommended drugs?
In this webinar, join us as we learn about the latest updates on medicines for COVID-19. Our main speaker is Dr. Edsel Maurice Salvaña, Director of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the UP Manila – National Institutes of Health and a key member of the DOH Technical Advisory Group.
