Nueva Vizcaya now 95% measles vaccinated

Nueva Vizcaya now 95% measles vaccinated


BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, May 28 (PIA) -- The province is now 95 percent saturated with anti-measles vaccination, health officials here told PIA.
Dr. Edwin Galapon, acting provincial health officer said they have already vaccinated with anti-measles all the 9-95 months old children of Bambang, Solano, Bayombong, Villaverde, Quezon, Bagabag, Diadi, Alfonso Castaneda, Dupax del Norte, Dupax del Sur and Aritao, Ambaguio and Sta. Fe.
“We just ran out of supplies as we are about to engage the towns of Kayapa and Kasibu so we incurred a backlog of 5 percent,” Galapon explained.
He however said that the remaining two towns will have a shot of the anti-measles vaccine once their requested supplies will arrive.
Last month, the Department of Health (DOH) launched a house to house anti-measles campaign in coordination and partnership with the tocal government units and their Rural Health Units(RHUs) concerned.
The house to house operation seeks to ensure that no one will be spared of the anti-measles vaccine, thereby ensuring their security from the dreaded measles disease.
The Department of Health (DOH) however has extended the deadline of its anti-measles campaign, allotting an extra four weeks to its initial month-long vaccination campaign that ran from April 4 to May 4, 2011.
At a press briefing last week, Health Secretary Dr. Enrique Ona announced that as of Wednesday (May 4), 11.8 million children, or 63 percent of their target of 18 million children, have already been immunized in their door-to-door campaign.
By May 30, 2011, the Health Department aims to immunize the remaining 6.2 million children aged between nine months and eight years old.
Ona admitted that completing the 18 million target in one month was a long shot, but he said the extension may be enough time for the target of 95 percent coverage.
In the month-long campaign, the DOH was able to immunize 63 percent of all eligible children nationwide. While the goal is to immunize at least 95 percent of children nationwide, the 63 percent that the Health Department already covered is considered a success, Ona said.
The World Health Organization said measles is caused by a virus in the paramyxovirus family. It added that the measles virus normally grows in the cells that line the back of the throat and lungs. #tcb/bme/PIA 2 – Nueva Vizcaya

600 additional tricycle drivers endorsed for “Pantawid Pasada” grants


TUGUEGARAO CITY, May 30 (PIA) -- A total of 600 tricycle drivers from the municipalities of Diadi and Dupax del Sur of Nueva Vizcaya, Solana and Sto Nino of Cagayan, and Naguilian of Isabela were submitted to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) to be included as beneficiaries of the “Pantawid Pasada” program of the present administration.
Sudi Valencia of the project monitoring and evaluation division of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) region 2 said the additional 600 tricycle operators was submitted late during the validation period and processing in the central office for funding.
“We already endorsed the additional list to our central office and on the process of lobbying it to DBM for funding,” Valencia stated.
In addition, the coastal municipality of Palanan in Isabela has just submitted additional 16 tricycle operators to be included as beneficiaries of the cash grant. Valencia said they are about to endorse the list to DBM.
On the other hand, Valencia stated out of 81 towns, they have already downloaded cash benefits to 71municiplaities with 44,616 total number of beneficiaries. With this number, DILG has already released 6.69 million pesos as cash grants to the tricycle drivers and operators.
Valencia is optimistic too that they can download the remaining grants to towns early next month. She further assured the public that they will strictly monitor the distribution of the cash to ensure that it reaches the targeted beneficiaries.
Meantime, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said there is no scheduled cash card distribution yet for jeepney and van operators in Cagayan Valley. (TCB/OTB/PIA-2)

PIA Press Release

Population executive board to conduct multi-sectoral forum on RH Bill
by Oliver T. Baccay

TUGUEGARAO CITY, June 3 (PIA) -- To increase awareness of local stakeholders on population, reproductive health and family planning issues and concerns, the Regional Population Executive Board (RPEB) region 2 is set to sponsor a multi-sectoral forum on the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill on June 16, 2011 to be held in Santiago City, Isabela.


POPCOM Regional Director Avelino Marallag said the forum aims to generate organizational commitment and actions to support RH and family planning programs at the national and local levels.


“It would also be a venue to identify local reproductive health and family planning needs and concerns that need to be addressed by decision makers and service providers”, he said.


Marallag also said the participants will be coming from different sectors which include local government units, legislators, barangay health workers, health officers, academe, student leaders, youth leaders, parent leaders, members of the Rural Improvement club (RIC), media, indigenous peoples, non-government originations, people’s organization, women organization, regional line agencies and others.


He further stated that the forum will be a venue to clarify issues, concerns and doubts of the public on the controversial RH Bill.


He specified that the debates of the congress only focus on one aspect of the bill which is on the use of contraceptives, but he clarified that there are other salient features of the bill which are not given so much attention to help in the solution of the age-old overpopulation problem of the country.


The expected participants in the said program are expected at about 200 heads. (OTB/PIA-2)

PIA Press Release
Friday, June 03, 2011
Public hearing on prov’l tourism ordinance held
by Necitas G. Alconis

BASCO, Batanes, June 3, (PIA) -- The provincial government has conducted a public hearing to elicit support from the Ivatans on the province’ proposed tourism ordinance which calls for a stricter action in maintaining the natural beauty of the islands and in preserving the cultural heritage of the Ivatans by exclusively promoting eco-cultural tourism in Batanes.


The proposed provincial tourism ordinance was presented by board members Ramonito Imperial and Flinton T. Abad, chairmen of the committees on rules and tourism respectively.


Abad said there is a need for a unified system of promoting eco-cultural tourism by implementing a systematic collection of fees by the municipalities and addressing the various concerns of tour guides and the transportation sector.


In order to address these concerns, the officer-in-charge of the Provincial Tourism office has requested the provincial government to appoint a permanent tourism officer who will take charge of the tourism affairs of the province.


Both board members Abad and Imperial have recommended for the creation of provincial tourism office under the office of the governor and a provincial tourism council to serve as mediator.


They also pushed for the creation of provincial heritage and cultural tourism council as mediator and the Batanes Heritage Management Office (BHMO) under the governor’s office.


The BHMO will be tasked to head four sub committees such as research and document data banking, natural and heritage preservation, cultural heritage and the tourism sector.


Meanwhile Basco mayor Demetrius Paul Narag has suggested that all tour guides in the province must be assessed before they will be issued working permits stressing that quality tour guiding is based on the guides’ knowledge or familiarity with the place, ability to communicate well with the tourists, personality and others.


The public hearing was attended by all the municipal mayors, barangay captains, travel agency representatives, tour guides, drivers, homestay and hotel operators, food establishment operators, pastoral councils and some national government agencies. (TCB/NGA/PIA Batanes)

Rice eels threaten Cagayan farms
By Charlie Lagasca The Philippine Star Updated June 05, 2011 12:00 AM 1 comment to this post

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines – A new aquatic pest threatens rice and fish farms in Cagayan Valley. 

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) said it has warned farmers on the emergence of destructive rice eels that have been damaging rice fields and wreaking havoc on fish ponds. 

“The species has been positively identified by (BFAR) experts as rice eels, basing on samples submitted by farmers and through monitoring conducted in affected areas of the region,” Evelyn Ame, BFAR regional research chief said.

Reports said the rice eels have been feeding on fish fry and boring holes in rice paddy walls, causing irrigation water to flow out.

Rice eels (monopterus albus) are indigenous to Southeast Asia and can multiply rapidly under certain conditions .

BFAR sources said rice eels have also infested six towns in Quirino; the towns of Villaverde, Solano and Quezon towns here; San Mateo, Angadanan, San Pablo and San Agustin in in Isabela; and Iguig, Amulung and Solana in Cagayan.

Farmers in the affected areas said they are having a hard time getting rid of the destructive eels because the pests are buried deep in moist mud.
