by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

Mayor Mauricio Domogan created a verification and certification team that will inspect and declare the “zero open defecation” (ZOD) status of the barangays and monitor their compliance with the National Sustainable Sanitation Plan of the Department of Health.

In Administrative Order 126, the mayor tasked City Health Officer Rowena Galpo to lead the team with the DOH representative, City Environment and Parks Management officer, and representatives of the Alay sa Kalinisan Foundation Inc., Philippine Association of Medical Technologies Baguio, and Philippine Society of Sanitary Engineers Cordillera as members.

The DOH targets that by 2016, 60 percent of the barangays are declared ZOD-compliant and 100 percent by 2022.

The mayor said no barangay has been declared of having ZOD status even if numerous barangays have claimed to be such.

He said the verification and certification team will address this concern. Through the team, the situation in the barangays will be known.

The team will verify the ZOD status of barangays, declare  them as such, and provide certification and reward.

Results will be reported to the DOH regional office and eventually to the DOH Environmental Related Disease Division.

The group will also ensure that the ZOD barangays will level up to the next ladder leading to total sanitation and as possible nominee to the DOH National Search for Barangays with Best Sanitation Practices.
