SND RECEIVES HEIGHT BOARD (WITH DOST STANDARD) FROM PGLDN

The Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte through the Provincial Health Office (PHO) distributed units of standard Height Boards to different municipalities of the province to ensure exact and reliable data gathering to their residents.

One of the recipients is the municipality of Sultan Naga Dimaporo (SND) who gave assurance of intensifying its campaign against malnutrition and by having the said equipment the local team of community health service providers would have an efficient data to be passed to all concerned agencies of the government particularly the National Nutrition Council – Department of Health.

” Now we are more than confident to have reliable data particularly on the number of stunted children in our areas. With the help of this official Height Board being provided by the provincial government, we are very much elated because this is very helpful on our local health initiatives “, SND Mayor Dimaporo emphasized.

In the community, health workers need standard equipment to define the extent the severity of under or over-nutrition. Such information would be the basis of identifying nutrition program planning. One good example is the Operation Timbang.
