Launching of Go 4 Health Barangay Versions

posted May 19, 2015, 1:47 AM by Barangay Tortugas
Barangay Tortugas strive to comply with the City Health Office' health program, a drive being implemented in the City of Balanga.
Go4Health Program Barangay Version aims to device or pattern programs suited for the barangay level. Examples are that of Smoking Cessation Program encouraging our residents to stop smoking for good; to pass an ordinance in relation to this; prohibition of selling alcoholic drinks to minors and for that matter, for stores to limit the selling of alcohol drinks.
It aims to intensify the implementation of ordinances on prohibition of drinking alcohol and smoking in public areas (alongside curfew hours for minors). We hope to continue with our Hataw Program, to conduct forums on wellness practices including nutrition for grade schoolers and the fight against malnutrition.  

These are just a few of what our Barangay Council would like to implement. We are confident that our City Health Office will be able to help us in this health campaign.
