The Manual of Procedures (MOPr) for Republic Act 11148 was finally  launched  via Zoom  in the Sulong First 1000 Days event last October 6.

In her key message during the MOPr launching, Sen. Risa Hontiveros, sponsor and co-author of the RA 11148 Law -- envisioned a community working together towards mitigating hunger thus investing in better nutrition in the First 1000 Days.


At Region IV-A, let us join hands this October and be part of the “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”  

With the initiative of NNC Calabarzon, the annual campaign hopes to educate everyone on the benefits of breastfeeding to reduce the risk of developing breast  cancer. Promotion of  early detection and cure  can also save more  lives.

The yellow milky fluid or  first milk is called “colostrum” (in left of left side photo on top).
