THE House of Representatives' Committee on Health on Thursday approved two bills that seek to create institutions on disease control and vaccine development.

Batanes Rep. Ciriaco Gato Jr., committee chairman, said the bill was "basically an enhancement of the 18th Congress bill" creating the Philippine Center for Disease Prevention and Control and which was approved in July 2021.

Also on Thursday, the health committee approved a substitute bill that seeks to create the Virology and Vaccine Institute of the Philippines.
