2 LGUs from Cordillera to receive award for good nutri program
by PIO release

Two local government units in the Cordillera are among this year’s awardees for their exemplary implementation of the government’s nutrition programs that resulted in the reduction of malnutrition cases in their jurisdiction.

National Nutrition Council-Cordillera Regional Nutrition Program Coordinator Rita Papey said Alfonso Lista, Ifugao is one of the recipients of the coveted Nutrition Honor Award (NHA) for having been a Consistent Regional Outstanding Winner on Nutrition (Crown) for six consecutive years while Baguio City will be receiving its second year Crown maintenance award.

Last year, Ifugao garnered the NHA for the provincial category for maintaining its Crown award for six years.

Papey said nutrition is one of the underrated programs of the government but it is one of the most important aspects of the health of an individual that will contribute in sustaining and improving their productivity.

The Green Banner Award will be conferred on Benguet for the provincial level and Tublay in Benguet; Hungduan, Ifugao; Balbalan, Kalinga; and Sagada, Mountain Province for the municipal category.

City Health Officer Rowena Galpo said Baguio City garnered a rating of 97.8 percent based on the criteria of the national evaluation team for its second year Crown maintenance award.

The city will vie for the NHA next year if it can sustain its gains in the implementation of nutrition programs and interventions.

Galpo expressed her gratitude to the barangay nutrition scholars, barangay nutrition action officers, barangay health workers, barangay officials, education officials, city officials, concerned government agencies, the private sector, and other stakeholders for their support to the implementation of nutrition programs.

She said the continuous increase in obesity among children and adults is one of the major challenges they encounter. Cordillera remains in the top two regions where obesity is reportedly prevalent.
