Health Beat Issue No.62


This year’s GAW celebration was held in Cagayan de Oro City in Northern Mindanao to focus on the region which has
the lowest UIE’s among pregnant women (33 mcg/L) and lactating mothers (55mcg/L) throughout the Philippines. Thus, Northern Mindanao (comprising Misamis Oriental, Misamis Occidental, Bukidnon, Camiguin) and the neighboring CARAGA
and Zamboanga Peninsula are the regions to watch for IDD.
