CORDILLERA LGUS URGED TO DESIGNATE FULL-TIME NUTRITION OFFICERS

0

BAGUIO CITY: Members of the Regional Nutrition Committee (RNC) approved a resolution enjoining all local government units in the Cordillera region to designate full-time nutrition officers and district/city nutrition coordinators with adequate support staff to coordinate local level planning, implementation and monitoring of nutrition programs. Regional Nutrition Program Coordinator Rita Papey said findings of the Regional Nutrition Evaluation Team (RNET) during the 2013 Monitoring and Evaluation of the Local Level Implementation (MELLPI) showed that one of the major factors contributing to low performance in the implementation of nutrition programs and improvement of nutritional status is the absence of full-time nutrition action officers and district/city nutrition coordinators and support staff. Currently, only Ifugao and Baguio City have a full-time District Nutrition Program Coordinator while only six out of 75 municipalities have full-time municipal nutrition action officers.
