DOH celebrates children's health campaign this April

by RG Alama

Davao City (19 April) -- The Department of Health (DOH) in partnership with the Local Government Units (LGUs) and with the support of the Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) is launching this April 16-20 a weeklong Children's Health campaign.

Dubbed as Garantisadong Pambata (GP) which is traditionally held every April and October, the program is a health campaign for children in the pre-school age (six years and below).

The four services of the program will focused on promoting Vitamin A supplementation, immunization, breastfeeding and deworming. These services can be availed at all Health Centers and Government Health facilities.

DOH Davao Regional Director Paulyn Jean Rosell-Ubial emphasized that GP time is an opportunity to catch up especially for these children who are unimmunized.

"Thus I am encouraging our parents and child care-takers to bring their children ages 0-5 years old to the nearest Health center." She said that in some areas GP services have started early in April and probably might extend the whole month of April to cover far-flung areas.

This year's GP theme is "Garantisadong Pambata! Four in one Kalusugan" aside from the four health services other health programs are also being promoted such as oral health, newborn screening, growth monitoring, iodized salt-testing and teatanus toxoid for pregnant women. (DOH/PIA XI) [top]
