HEAT Bohol is an articulation of Bohol’s priority programs. It is anchored on the more encompassing service mission slogan LIFE HELPS – Livelihood and Tourism, Infrastructure, Food, Education and Technology, Health, Environment, Leadership Development, Peace and Order, and Sports and Youth Development.
HEAT stands for Health and Sanitation, Education and Technology, Agriculture and Food Security, and Tourism and Livelihood – Gov. Edgar M. Chatto’s enduring advocacy towards poverty reduction.
The HEAT Bohol caravan stems from the Provincial Government of Bohol’s commitment to the development of the province. It aims to reach out to the poorest and most vulnerable rural groups by bringing the provincial government’s services to their towns; in effect, making the provincial government’s presence felt at community level.
It is the governor’s firm conviction that the closer we are to where the action is the more responsive we can be to the needs of the people.
The HEAT Bohol Caravan is held every two months alternating between the towns of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Districts of the province.
The next HEAT Bohol Caravan has been set this coming October 23, 2012 in the municipality of Valencia, Bohol.
