OPLAN BUSOG: Batang Undernourished Sagipin at Busogin

Malnutrition among children 0-71 months in the barangay is slowly resolving. Indeed, slowly but surely, we are achieving our goal of improving the nutritional status of children in Sinai.

For September to October 2018, activities done include:

  • Mass Weight and Height Taking
    • 17 among the 110 children remain to be underweight and severely underweight.

  • Handwashing Action Song in Sinai Daycare
  • Lobbying for Sinai Daycare Comfort Room Construction
  • Communal Garden Planning

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!

ADOLESCENT HEALTH COMMUNITY HEALTH PLAN

Adolescence is a crucial period of psychological and biological changes, and only second to early childhood in the rate and extent of developmental change. A statement from the World Health Organization (WHO) Representative included that adolescents, like all people from all age groups, should be given every opportunity to realize their rights to attain the highest standards of health and well-being, so that they will contribute to greater social and economic development. It is not sufficient that they survive; they should be ensured health and well-being (thrive); and ensured an enabling environment so that they will lead productive lives (transform).

In April 2000, the Department of Health’s (DOH) Administrative Order 34-A, s. 2000 created the Adolescent and Youth Health Sub-program under the Children’s Health Cluster of the Family Health Office. It was followed in 2006 by the creation of a Technical Committee composed of government and non-government organizations who was tasked to revitalize the program.

The medical students aim to establish a collaborative approach in establishing, planning strategies, and forging linkages with different sectors to achieve its results. The solution is focused on improving the health status of adolescents,
