The Department of Agriculture in Region XI (DA-XI) receives the Department of Health’s (DOH) Red Orchid Hall of Fame award in its effort of implementing a 100% tobacco-free environment.

The Red Orchid Awards is the DOH’s search among government hospitals, offices, and local government units (LGUs) that implement a 100-percent tobacco-free environment and meeting the quality standards on tobacco prevention and control set by the World Health Organization (WHO).

“I laud the efforts of my co-workers in making DA a tobacco-free agency. Without their support this award would not be possible,” DA-XI Regional Executive Director Ricardo M. Oñate, Jr. said.

DA-XI has consistently joined the search since 2014 and has consistently won the Red Orchid Award.
