Turn-over Ceremony of Birthing Station

Turn-over of the birthing station constructed in Mulanay, Quezon. The Inter-agency Programme to Nurture Peace, Security and Decent Work through Local Development in Conflict Areas of the Philippines (Bondoc LED) supports upgrade, renovation or construction of birthing stations; training of midwives and Barangay Health Workers on Maternal and Child Health Care (MCHC) and provision of basic equipment for the birthing stations to improve access to better health facilities by mothers and children in the area. The support is a contribution of the project to the Philippine Government’s effort to reduce the infant mortality and improve maternal and child health care under its commitment to the Millennium Development Goal for 2015.
