2016 has been a year of adjustment and growth for the country’s healthcare industry. Developments such as the implementation of a universal health coverage through PhilHealth, the strengthened execution of the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health (RP-RH) Law, the promotion of mental health education and assistance, and the government’s recent plan to distribute free medicine worth PHP2 billion to marginalized Filipino families show that the Philippines’ health sector is ripe for disruption especially with more focused government spending and investments on the digitization of healthcare.

Under normal circumstances, it would seem highly unlikely that a young professional could afford to purchase his own home. Believe it or not, however, Amaia Land has just turned the improbable into a probability. In fact, at the recent grand turnover event of Amaia Skies Cubao, most of the new homeowners were professionals in their 20’s, who claimed that Amaia Land made buying units in the condominium easy and convenient.
Two such young professionals, Camille Naredo, 25, and Suzette Cabase, 26, received the keys to their new abodes last November 19, disputing the common notion that millennials are more inclined to party, travel, and shop for expensive gadgets than invest in worthwhile ventures.
The young women aver that Amaia Skies Cubao’s location and affordability were what ultimately drove them to buy their units in the recently completed project.

A bright new beginning in a brand-new home. Could there be a more joyful way to celebrate the Yuletide season?
Not for Amaia’s prospective homeowners who will soon be welcomed into their abodes when Amaia Land starts to deliver units in 7 more of its developments before the year ends. This will bring the number of its operational projects to 22 by end-2016.
Already, Amaia Land has delivered almost 3,000 homes in 16 projects to its clients, of which 1,000 were delivered earlier this year. Before this year ends, it is committed to turnover another 1,000 units to homeowners.
