- Category: Compendium of Local Ordinances on Nutrition
At the height of the pandemic in May 2020, the NNC and the Alcanz team proposed to the team of Mayor Janet Aurestila-Garcia, Engr. Ednardo Avenido – the Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator (MPDC), and Doctor to the Barrio (DTTB)-assigned Dr. Denim Maghanoy, the possibility of jointly preparing the Annual Investment Program (AIP) for 2021 on nutrition online. The discussions flourished and by end of July, the 2021 AIP was completed and subsequently approved by the Sangguniang Bayan (SB). The total budget allocated in the 2021 AIP for nutrition was Php. 9 million including PPAs on the First 1000 Days, Philippine Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition (PIMAM), Nutrition-sensitive programs, and Enabling Programs in pursuance of the Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition (PPAN).
