This activity provided the platform for the discussion of health services by way of talks from public health service providers. Resource speakers came from the Municipal Health and Nutrition Office (MHNO), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), the Culion Sanitarium and General Hospital (CSGH), and Philhealth. The talks zeroed in on concerns and questions of the communities drawn out from a prior string of community meetings.
Children were also engaged in the event through interactive activities and games which promote basic habits on proper hygiene, health, and nutrition.
Small Group Learning Exchanges
A crucial part of the LUSOG Days, these exchanges were aimed at bridging the gaps between Tagbanua and health institutions. This was facilitated by intimate dialogues that promoted the understanding of each group's context and challenges in accessing (on the Tagbanua side) or delivering (on the health providers side) of health services. The dialogues focused on: 1) General community health concerns, 2) Maternal health and delivery, and 3) Child health services and care.
The LUSOG Days were mounted in all three partner communities of Alulad, Chindonan and Cagait from December 2016 to February 2017. Browse through the slideshow below to see what went on:
