MALNUTRITION: From a whopping high to an improving low

Untitled

Good news! From a malnutrition rate of 18.5% among children 0-71 months in 2016, barangay Sinai is now down to a rate of 1.29% as of March 2019!

After 8 weeks of feeding with peanut-based RUTF and an extended monitoring period, 15 out of 17 previously undernourished children attained a normal weight-for-age status. A closing program for Pakaon ni Nanay sa Sinai was then held last January 30, 2019.

Ingredients for RUTF making, peanut and vegetable seedlings with packs of monggo and rice, were then distributed to the remaining 2 malnourished children. In coordination with Sinai Women’s Association, 2 trays of eggs were agreed to be given out to them by the end of March.

Meanwhile, more livelihood opportunities are coming for our mothers. Gardens were also plotted and are now for monitoring. Way to go, barangay!

Future plans involve an eight-day feeding program with a locally-prepared peanut-based Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food for malnourished children.

Alone, we can do so much but together, we can do so much more.

Team MediSinai has re-surveyed 149 households and was able to take the blood pressure of 223 individuals. Among the 223 individuals, 84 individuals were identified with pre-hypertensive blood pressure, 32 individuals with stage 1 hypertension and 54 individuals are considered to be with stage 2 hypertension.

This exposure, the group was able to meet with the core group and had a retraining on proper blood pressure taking. Some of the members were new, because the group decided to switch members due to their lack of compliance to the responsibilities. This time around, the members were asked to sign a contract stating their roles and responsibilities. They were even introduced to the people during the FDS meeting last October 3, 2018.

Another plan to control hypertension is to change or rather, improve their diet. The group decided to create a communal garden per purok. This was proposed to the barangay officials and was given a go signal. The group then visited the Department of Agriculture, Provincial office, to acquire seeds and other help they could offer. The group then inquired about vermicasting to be done in partnership with the Solid Waste Management health plan to better re-use biodegradable waste other than just dumping it in a compost pit.

Future plans include distribution of BP monitoring booklets and having a pill count for identifies hypertensives. Cooking demonstrations in partnership with the Malnutrition health plan will also be done to encourage hypertensives to cook a balanced meal with lesser salt, and basically present the DASH diet. Herbal plants would also be discussed and which of these are DOH-approved. Proper preparation will also be discussed.

Overall, hypertension is one of the problems that all communities face. Until the next update!
