The  Philippine Heart Association (PHA)  condemns  the atrocious attack on the medical convention of the Philippine College of Chest Physicians (PCCP)  that killed eight and hurt 46 people, mostly  physicians and medical representatives  on the night of July 26, 2013 in  Cagayan de Oro City. 

The national PCCP convention gathered  lung doctors and other health professionals who practice  around the country. “We denounce this vicious and callous act of aggression on health professionals and their pharmaceutical allies, who value and save lives.    

 We, doctors and our pharmaceutical partners share  and work on a common advocacy that calls for universal efforts toward the prevention of premature death,  and this includes sudden death of  innocent  people  who  were victims  of violence or terror campaign, “ said PHA President Dr. Eugene Reyes.Reyes added “there is no such thing as a collateral damage because regardless of the circumstances, any  death  is the permanent  loss of a loved one  which is severely heartbreaking.”The perpetrators have to be meted out penalty  for the atrocious crime they had committed on precious human lives.  They just deprived the victims’  loved ones of a father/mother, spouse,  son/daughter, or  a sibling.
