Team NB proudly joins the efforts of the Department of Health, Water & Sanitation Program, and the World Bank to end OPEN DEFECATION by displaying these HD posters on TOILET SANITATION IN BISAYA DIALECT in strategic areas of the barangay as one of the five parts of the TOILET SANITATION INFORMATION CAMPAIGN under the "Bayanihan sa Palikuran" program of the team NB.
For Health Promotion and Disease Prevention as the core of Community Medicine, the team strongly believes that one of the vital functions of being doctors in the community is ADVOCATING FOR HEALTH through information dissemination thus the creation of the "TOILET SANITATION INFORMATION CAMPAIGN". This aims to influence the members of the community to build their capacity to be the responsible residents that they can be and together, strive for a zero-open defecation barangay. This campaign also synergizes the efforts of all stakeholders, especially the barangay council who was able to procure and distribute water sealed toilet bowls from the office of the Provincial Governor last November 2016.
Special thanks to the generous sponsors of our school ADZUSOM and to the Ateneo de Zamboanga University School of Medicine Community Department for supporting our cause to end open defecation.
