Since the advent of public health (MPH) in the 17th century, its success has depended on close engagement with society. In the field of health, bioethics professionally bridges the gap between institutional and public policy, creating a link between achievements, responsibilities, and what needs to be done when the area of ​​responsibility prevails as the guiding principle of ethics. In this context, since public health and bioethics incorporate social and subjective determinants in their analysis, it is recommended that public health action be undertaken using an expanded and integrated view of the relationship between human and health. The essence of public health ethics concerns the moral rationale for policies, programs, and laws that protect and promote public health. Since public health includes broad social programs and public policies, issues related to justifying paternalistic interventions, equitable distribution of resources, and responsibility for health. Certain patient care measures (such as vaccinations) also contribute to public health, and difficult ethical questions can and do arise among practitioners.

The rapid rise of chronic diseases in the Philippines from non-communicable disease to mental health disorder requires a rebalancing of health care priorities to meet these challenges. Recent statistical modelling studies in the country revealed a strong relationship in the developmental outcome of NCD and mental health. The need to develop strategies aimed at integrating NCD and mental health are important steps towards efficient and effective health care delivery systems particularly in low-income countries. Critical to these changes in health care delivery system is the role of key decision makers in understanding the interrelationship of chronic diseases and areas in public health policy related to governance. A semi-structured key informant interview was conducted, and responses were analyzed using a thematic content technique to determine knowledge and how current health programs are meeting these challenges. The results of the study highlighted areas for future research and public health policy development, while revealing structural and organizational problems. The implication of improving human capital development, governance, and communication gaps between national and local government agencies are vital to addressing these problems
