Today is National Child Health Month. This yearâ€™s celebration will focus on Upholding Childrenâ€™s Rights During the Pandemic, with the theme â€œSama-samang Itaguyod Ang Karapatan ng Bawat Bata sa Panahon ng Pandemya!â€. It aims to promote the protection of all children and their rights and provide practical support to parents and caregivers on how to care for children and themselves during the pandemic.
Recently, President Duterte urged parents to have their children immunized against measles and polio as the Philippines holds its national vaccination program. He underscored the need for communicable diseases to be promptly addressed, especially in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Department of Health, together with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Childrenâ€™s Fund (UNICEF) is implementing a nationwide Measles, Rubella, and Oral Polio Vaccine Supplemental Immunization Activity (MR-OPV SIA) in two phases, in order to prevent a measles outbreak in the coming months, and to end the currently ongoing poliovirus transmission and re-circulation in the country.
Together, let us safeguard the well-being of our children and ensure a healthier future for our nation.
