The VPHCS supported the Community Medicine Development Foundation (COMMED) in its recent project with the World Health Organization (WHO) Country Office, the Department of Health – Center for Health Development (CHD) and the City Health Offices (CHO) of Mandaue, Lapu-lapu and Cebu Cities. COMMED was the training institution for the WHO project “Exclusive Breastfeeding for the First Six Months Breastfeeding, Tama, Sapat at Ekslusibo (BFTSEK).”

Staff of the VPHCS joined COMMED staff in training peer counselors (PC) of breastfeeding who included barangay health workers, barangay nutrition scholars, nurses, medical officers, infant and young child feeding coordinators and health education and promotion officers of the City Health Offices in a series of seminars in September.

After the trainings, practicums or mentoring of the trained counselors actually doing counseling of pregnant and lactating mothers were conducted in October.
