During the meeting, NO III Gaya reviewed and discussed what transpired on Day 1 of the RTWG Consultation Meeting, PPAN 2023-2028 Guiding Principles, Strategic Thrust, and Investments for PPAN while PEO Loyola presented the Interventions, Organization, and Management of the PPAN.

To identify the available programs, projects, and activities offered by the regional line agencies, each RTWG member presented their strategies and interventions for RPAN 2023-2028, including financial requirements and physical targets. Submitted strategies and interventions by other agencies not present in the meetings were also presented.

As part of the workshop, NNC member agencies are encouraged to a) revisit agency devolution transition plans to match tasks and accountabilities that are compatible, complementary, or supportive of nutrition-specific, nutrition-sensitive, or nutrition-enabling interventions in the PPAN and b) revisit, develop and tighten institutional strengthening mechanisms for nutrition sector planning and programming. 

NNC MIMAROPA and RTWG MIMAROPA shall work collectively to formulate an effective, dynamic, and realistic Regional Plan of Action for Nutrition (RPAN) 2023-2028 to address malnutrition concerns within the region. Sa PPAN Panalo ang Bayan!
