Tagalog News: PGMA pangungunahan ang pagbubukas ng International Autism Forum

by BD Enestois

Manila (3 February) -- Pangungunahan ngayon ni Pangulong Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo ang mga medical experts, foreign dignitaries at advocacy organizations sa pagbubukas ng tatlong araw na International Autism Conference (IAC) sa Philippine International Convention Center.

Tatalakayin sa nasabing pagpupulong ang mga bagong pag-aaral, kaalaman, impormasyon, diagnosis, assessment, treatment at mga policies para sa mga autism cases.

Napag-alaman na tinatayang aabot sa kalahating milyong Pilipino ang may Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Subalit, ayon sa datus, limang porsyento lang sa mga ito ang na-diagnose at tanging 2% lang ang nabigyan ng kaukulang atensiyong medical.

Inihayag ni Christine Roa, executive director ng Autism Hearts Philippines, Inc., ang nasabing pagpupulong ay magsisilbing forum para sa mga Pilipino na unawain ang naturang disorder.

Tampok sa nasabing forum ang Autism Institute of Asia, One-Stop-Shop for Children with ASD na nakabase sa bansa, ang New York-based autism advocacy group na Autism Speaks at ang Global Autism Public Health Initiative in the Philippines (GAPH).

Host sa nasabing event ang Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders (MIND), isang international at multidisciplinary research organization na nakabase sa Sacramento, California. (PIA 12) [top]
