Robotic Surgery for PWD patients

Many Pinoys with disabilities are already burdened with having to take so much maintenance medication that their livers and kidneys become weaker over time. If the need arises, later in life, for surgery or any invasive procedure, the PWD’s body will not heal as fast. Possibly, the PWD patient may not even benefit from the surgery as the healing process may be compromised.

Intersex People: Are they PWDs too?

Did you know that it is improper to call or refer to a human being with sex developmental disorders as a “hermaphrodite”?  The proper term is “intersex” or a person whose body does not fit in the regular medical category of being either male of female. They are “i” in LGBTI.  To refer or label them as hermaphrodite is offensive as this term is only used for lower animal and plant life forms.
