The Malita Experience

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Last August 18, 2015 was the project launch of the implementation of the Subnational Initiative of the World Health Organization. Malita being the pilot site was given the highlight of the event. It was also the launching of ACCESS for MNH or Accelerating Convergence Efforts For Systems Strengthening for Maternal and Newborn Health.

Maternal deaths continue to confront the country. With different efforts to reduce maternal health, somehow it is never easy. With the MDG 2015 almost to end, it doesn't mean that efforts would end, when MDG ends. The fight to reduce maternal death and neonatal death will continue. And as Dr. Dumama said, "Walang nanay at sanggol ang mamamatay dahil sa panganganak."

The SNI project will be replicated to the 9 other municipalities/cities.

The Ambassador of Korea, Representatives of KOICA, the Regional Director of WHO Western Pacific Region, the WHO Representative to the Philippines, Governors, Mayors, PHOs, MHOs and so many more dignitaries where there to grace the event.

As for my speech.... well that's another post :)
