PGLDN to scale up response for schistosomiasis control

TUBOD, Lanao del Norte (PIA)–The Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte (PGLDN) in partnership with the Department of Health (DOH) in Northern Mindanao convened Tuesday, December 7, the members of the Provincial Task Force for Schistosomiasis Infection to intensify efforts to control schistosomiasis infections in the province.

“We are here to institutionalize the Provincial Task Force for Schistosomiasis Infection Control. We want you to participate in making programs that are geared towards helping the health sector in totally eradicating schistosomiasis from the province of Lanao del Norte,” Dr. Grace Joy Yañez, rural health physician, told the attendees of the meeting.

Yañez who represented Provincial Health Officer Dr. Marujeta Isabel Opamen said the health sector cannot tackle the schistosomiasis problem alone. She said they need to gather together the Task Force members and go back to the drawing board to address the problem.

Four municipalities in the province were earlier identified as endemic areas for schistosomiasis. These are Kapatagan, Lala, Salvador, and Sapad.

Actions undertaken by the PGLDN in these areas include the conduct of mass drug administration and provision of Kato-Katz examination to patients and treatment for those found positive.

Engr. George Demavivas of PHO reported to the Task Force that they also conducted a malacological survey of all sentinel sites. The Provincial Government meanwhile provided augmentation to municipalities in the provision of toilet bowls to barangays. It also gave incentives to barangays declared as Zero Open Defecation.
