Oro mayor, DOH-10 laud city midwives

Cagayan de Oro City (6 September) -- RECOGNIZING their vital role in the community, City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula and the Department of Health-10 lauded the 72 registered midwives of the city government for their contribution to Cagayan de Oro's health care system.

Mayor Jaraula recognized the local midwives during the 10th Annual Regional Convention of the Integrated Midwives Association of the Philippines Inc. held in the city very recently even as he encouraged them to excel in providing quality health care for mothers and children.

Mayor Jaraula pointed out that the local midwives play a significant role in achieving the intentions of the city government to have zero infant-mortality.

He expressed confidence that with the performance of the city's health care providers such as the nurses, doctors and the midwives, the city government can succeed in improving the delivery of health care system in the barangay level.

Part of his plan is making the city hall an infant-friendly institution by establishing an air-conditioned room complete with facilities for breastfeeding city government employees; and a day care center within city hall area.

For his part, Dr. Joselito Saburnido, regional director of Department of Health-10, lauded the midwives for putting into record Northern Mindanao as having the lowest infant mortality rate in the country.

The said convention focused on the theme, "Midwifery….Its global commitment to women and newborn." (Cagayan de Oro City IO/PIA-MisOrOccCam i-Net) [top]
