Abstract :

The study aims to evaluate the perspective of health care professionals on implementation of the essential new born care protocol as well as the problems encountered of respondents from 6 rural health units of Eastern Pangasinan along with governance, service delivery and regulation. A descriptive quantitative research design was employed through a survey questionnaire; total enumeration was employed with 90 respondents. Frequency count, mean and rank was used to analyze the data. Findings revealed that there is a moderate implementation (2.91) along with governance, service delivery and respondents stated a poor implementation (1.98) of the essential new born care protocols. Problems encountered by health workers include time pressure due to an increased number of clients, uncooperative mothers, knowledge deficit about the protocols of the "Unang Yakap", and lack of related seminars and training. It can be concluded that there is a poor implementation of the existing program in other areas because they lack training and knowledge regarding the essential new born care.
