Men attend RH and healthy lifestyle forum
by Jobelle Batanes

The Benguet Provincial Health Office organized a seminar on healthy lifestyle and reproductive health for male employees of the Capitol last March 9, at the Benguet Sports Complex in Wangal, La Trinidad. 

“Study shows that men die earlier than women,” Provincial Health Officer Nora Ruiz said so the PHO organized the seminar to increase their awareness on nutrition and healthy living.

The seminar was in support to the celebration of the Women’s Month.

“Men should be educated about the needs of women and their children because they play a vital role in parenthood,” said Dr. Mercedes S. Calpito who discussed responsible parenthood and reproductive health.

Calpito educated the men on how they can help end violence against women like respecting women and girls in their home, workplace, and community.

She said they can also join male groups promoting anti-VAW efforts and participate in discussions to broaden their awareness on the advocacy.

Men can further enlighten or advise perpetrators to seek help and join the male anti-VAW supporters.

Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center peer educator Darwin Babon discussed sexually transmitted diseases prevention and treatment.

He encouraged the participants to know more about STDs and HIV/AIDS. He said of the 296 HIV/AIDS cases in the Cordillera, Benguet contributed 28 cases.

Department of Health National Center for Disease Prevention and Control head Shelly M. Aral talked about healthy lifestyle and drug abuse prevention and treatment, while Cirila Sabiano, program coordinator of the PHO, discussed the benefits of blood Donation. Nutritionist Joynalyn Tadifa lectured on proper nutrition and diet.

The participants were assessed on their risk to develop stroke and heart attack using the non-communicable disease risk assessment form by the PHO led by Dr. Meliarazon Dulay.
