DOH holds community mobilization orientation and workshop in Bacolod

Bacolod City (29 June) -- About 60 participants coming from the provinces of Negros Occidental, Negros Oriental and Capiz and Department of Health (DOH) in Western and Central Visayas are currently attending a three-day community mobilization orientation and workshop at the O?Hotel, Bacolod City.

Delegates are representing the office of the DOH, Provincial Health Offices, and provincial and municipal level NGOs.

The on-going seminar is organized and conducted by USAID?s Health Promotion & Communication Project (HealthPRO).

The orientation deals with community mobilization model and health promotion and aims to identify target audiences, mobilizable groups and individuals to effectively conduct health classes or the "Usapang Buhay Kalusugan."

The activity will also plan for high impact health events and health classes on safe motherhood, child health and family planning and discuss how to build a supportive environment through media, advocacy and effective use of communication materials parallel to conducting community mobilization.

Among the topics that the health classes will tackle is safe motherhood to inform mothers that: all pregnancies are risks; complications can happen any time during pregnancy and delivery; to prevent maternal deaths and that all pregnant women should be seen and cared for by a skilled health professional.

Pregnant women should have at least four (4) pre-natal check ups; should have a birth and emergency plan and they are encouraged to deliver in health facilities where there are skilled health professional, equipment, supplies and drugs available to provide the best care and referral system.
