Strengthening Nutrition Programs An Imperative to Devolution and Development of LGUs

The Local Government Code of 1991, RA 7160 celebrated its 30th year of enactment on 12 October 2021.   This landmark law paved the way for a decentralization alongside the process of democratization that started in the late 1980s.  Over a period of three decades both the national government and LGUs have painstakingly employed measures, programs and various initiatives to ensure the realization of genuine devolution and decentralization of our local government units.
