The LGU aimed to achieve zero malnutrition in the community.
The LGU conducted immunization and deworming programs, nutrition education classes for mothers, and interventions such as weekly food packs with counseling.
The LGU saw a decrease in the prevalence of malnutrition from 34.9% in 2020 to 11.2% in 2021.
Guideline 1: Involve parents in nutritional programs.
With the LGU’s nutrition education programs, more parents are informed on how to ensure their children’s good health, including the importance of immunization. With that, immunization completion among children rose from 21% to 86%.
Guideline 2: Make services accessible for indigenous communities.
The LGU initiated Sahaya Day, an event aimed at delivering healthcare services to indigenous communities. Additionally, it seeks to dispel stereotypical biases against the community, while also offering legal services and educational programs.
