Barangay Kalunasan officials were presented with the guidelines for the National Sandugo Award by the Department of Health. The National Sandugo Award is an initiative of the DOH for local government executives who have shown support and commitment to the National Voluntary Blood Services Program (NVBSP).

The National Sandugo Award for Local Government Executives is bestowed on a provincial governor, city mayor, municipal mayor or barangay captain who gave outstanding support, commitment and active involvement in the promotion of voluntary blood donation towards the achievement of the vision of Republic Act 7719 otherwise known as the "National Blood Services Act of 1994."

Specific criteria to the awards include personal involvement and commitment in the NVBSP, provision of resources in the promotion of voluntary blood donation, being instrumental for the high percentage of voluntary blood donation in his jurisdiction which includes blood collected by government and private hospital, PNRC blood center, local health services and non-government organizations (NGOs) and exemplary administrative actions in support of NVBSP such as issuances within the last five years.

The awards is in line with the advocacy enhanced by the enactment of Republic Act 7719 which mobilized national agencies and private organizations to promote voluntary blood donation and collect the lifesaving fluid.
