In line with the 2022 Nutrition Month Celebration, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) – Rizal Provincial Statistical Office under the lead of Chief Statistical Specialist Yra B. Sibug supported the 48th Nutrition Month Campaign with the theme “New Normal na Nutrisyon Sama Samang Gawan ng Solusyon!”.
The theme for this year’s nutrition month campaign was approved by the National Nutrition Council (NNC) Technical Committee which calls for strengthened nutrition interventions and solidarity towards nutrition improvement as the country shifts towards living with the COVID-19 virus. It also signifies the key role of nutrition in building resilience from pandemic to endemic paradigm.
As enjoined by the NNC, PSA-Rizal conceptualized activities in line with the 48th Nutrition Month Campaign which includes a lecture activity to all employees held last July 18, 2022 in coordination with the City Health Office of Antipolo represented by Ms. Cresta Pamela V. Del Valle, RND as the resource speaker. Every Monday of July, PSA-Rizal also conducts a brief input-sharing activity on the health-related topics.
The 2022 Nutrition Month campaign aims to highlight the importance of nutrition in recovery, stimulate discussions on how to build back better the design and delivery of nutrition interventions, encourage the participation of various sectors to promote nutrition, and calls upon stakeholders to implement evidence-based and innovative solutions to increase resilience and improved nutrition outcomes.
