Improved nutrition in the province was addressed in the recent meeting of the Provincial Nutrition Council at the Provincial Health Office, last September 7, 2022. Data showed that the number of underweight and severely underweight kids from ages 0 to 5 years old has steadily decreased in the span of five (5) years, from a total of 3,497 during 2018 to 2,461 as of this year. The Chief of the Provincial Health Office, Dr. Reymoses Cabagnot plans a sustained effort in further decreasing this number. (MAEP)
