The other side of the stairwell

The fire extinguishers in the previous photo are on the left side of the clinic's stairwell. This is on the right side. The waiting area of the medical and dental clinics of the Health Alternatives for Total Human Development Institute, Inc. (HealthDev Institute) is really just a corridor with benches and this little decorative grouping. The clinic's fees are less than half of what one would normally spend seeing a doctor in a private practice and the service is much better than what one would get in a government-sponsored public hospital or community clinic—a very good alternative indeed. More than the clinics though, the HealthDev Institute also provides health development training and planning for various schools, communities and provinces in the Philippines.
