Anemia Can Be Prevented in Bogo City

April 22, 2014

Update from the Main Health Office, Bogo City, Philippines

The Bogo City Health Office has limited funds for the purchase of Ferrous Sulfate tablets.  If there are supplies available, the pregnant women are the top priority, however, the availability of the iron vitamins is not sustained so there are times that those pregnant women have to buy the Ferrous Sulfate tablets on their own. Unfortunately, most of the pregnant women seeking prenatal care in our health centers are not financially capable and most of them stop taking iron vitamins during their pregnancy.

Upon the receipt of the donated bottles of Ferrous Sulfate tablets from RMF and International Relief and Development, there is continuous supply of the iron vitamins to all our pregnant women starting from the 1st trimester of their pregnancy until their lactating period.

THANK YOU to RMF/IRD, ANEMIA is being prevented in our locality.

Below are some of the pictures taken during the distribution of Ferrous Sulfate tablets to the pregnant women during their prenatal visits.
