Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Rex Gatchalian leads the discussion for the 3rd Implementation Support Mission (ISM) of the Philippine Multisectoral Nutrition Project (PMNP) at the DSWD Central Office on Friday (June 2).
The 3rd ISM will be conducted in partnership with the Department of Health (DOH) and the World Bank in Region VIII.
It will provide an opportunity for project implementers to gain a better understanding of the contextual factors which may affect the PMNP implementation, particularly at sub-national levels.
It also provides an opportunity to engage with key project stakeholders such as municipal and barangay local government units, health providers, community volunteer groups, among others.
The PMNP is a holistic project that aims to harmonize the delivery of nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions to reduce stunting in targeted localities around the country.
