In a bid to curb the rate of infant mortality and malnutrition in Caloocan City, a councilor has proposed an ordinance to ensure holistic health care for children up to two years old.

Councilor Aurora Henson Jr. said the first 1,000 days of a child’s life was a “critical window of opportunity to prevent malnutrition and its lifelong consequences.”

Under the proposed ordinance, a First 1,000 Days program coordinator would be assigned at the city’s 44 health centers, covering all 188 barangays.

Barangay nutrition scholars will be appointed and tasked to identify the health problems in their areas, as well as implement intervention programs, the ordinance said.

The ordinance also proposes providing additional care for mothers who are poor, still in their teens, or suffering from postpartum depression.

If the ordinance is passed, Caloocan will be the third city in the country to come up with its version of Republic Act 11148, or the Kalusugan at Nutrisyon ng Mag-nanay Act.
