"One of the administration's priority is to ensure that the city caters the medical needs of everyone, thus achieve prosperity that comes from a community with a healthy citizenry," he added.
Among the topics discussed were the different types of diseases that commonly occur in a community such as dengue, measles and chickenpox.
