Top Ten Health Stories of the Year
The Top Ten Stories of the Year highlights the health stories that “rocked” not only the Department of Health (DOH) but also the entire country for a particular year. These stories are consolidated and published in the year-end issues of Healthbeat, the official newsmagazine of the DOH. Healthbeat’s Top Ten Stories is based on the media monitoring of the National Center for Health Promotion (NCHP) and the judgment of the editorial board. This countdown started in 1996.
