JANUARY-MARCH 2020 UPDATES

Wow! That was quite a long time to be in the community. This was the very first time we experienced to be there two months straight. It'd take me days to describe the challenges, the drama we were put through but in the end of this exposure, love among us definitely grew stronger.

1. MALNUTRITION

One month after the one-month supplementary feeding program, the children were re-assessed.

2. SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT.

This was an exposure with a lot of exciting activities from this community health program. A one month celebration called, "A Love Affair with Nature," with the theme, "Inang Kalikasan, Ating Alagaan," was commenced. The activities include Lectures and Clean up by puroks and at schools, Slogan Writing and Poster Making Competition among grade school students and Miss Earth 2020. All these aim to enhance the community's knowledge on SWM and to promote cleanliness in the barangay.

3. EMERGENCY REFERRAL SYSTEM.

For a CHP that's entirely new, the core group members underwent their team building and oath taking. They were also trained by the MDRRMO on basic life support and wound care. The members are given power and confidence to respond to any emergencies in the barangay.

4. ACCESS TO SAFE WATER.

Re-evaluation of the programs were done through a survey per household.

5. HIGH INCIDENCE OF HYPERTENSION.

The monitoring of enrolled hypertensive club members was done with the core group, Team HALTApresyon. A week long celebration entitled,"Be Careful with Your Heart," was commenced. This is to enhance the knowledge about hypertension. DASH Diet was introduced with the intent to educate hypertensives and diabetics on how their nutrition should be. On Valentine's, a message writing was done among the hypertensive couples. A second round of Mass Diagnosis was done with the help of the RHU team. Currently, 52% of the identified hypertensives are enrolled with free monthly medications. The barangay health workers also underwent a seminar workshop on proper referral system of the hypertensives in the barangay.
