NNC updates MTPPAN

by CP Babaran

Legazpi City (16 October) -- The Medium-Term Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition (MTPPAN) was formulated in 2005, under the leadership of the National Nutrition Council (NNC), as the country's blueprint to address malnutrition among Filipinos.

In 2008, the PPAN was updated to be more responsive to socio-political and economic developments brought about by global trends. The MTPPAN aims to contribute to the achievement of the country's commitment toward the UN Millennium Development Goals and Targets as well as on poverty reduction and hunger mitigation.

For 2008-2010, the updated MTPPAN is directed towards reducing disparities by prioritizing population groups (e.g. pregnant women, infants and children 1-2 years) and geographic areas that are at risk to malnutrition. Investments shall also be increased in interventions that could impact more significantly on undernutrition such as breastfeeding promotion, complementary feeding, supplementation with Vitamin A and zinc and the appropriate management of severe acute malnutrition.

The NNC and its network at various levels will continue to provide the structure and mechanism for coordinating and integrating the implementation of the updated MTPPAN. (NNC/PIA) [top]
