DAGUPAN CITY– The Department of Health (DOH) in cooperation with the Department of Education (DepEd) launched its second round of National School Deworming Day (NSDD) today in this city.
A kick-off ceremony for the NSDD was spearheaded by the DOH in the Ilocos at 9 a.m.  at the Federico N. Ceralde Integrated School in barangay Bonuan Binloc here.
Lawrence Navarro, senior health program officer  of DOH in the Ilocos, said the NDSS aims to increase the number of dewormed school children to ensure that more children shall be spared from helminthiasis or parasitism for better health and school performance.
During the one-day activity, the deworming tablet called albendazole was administered to a child two hours after they had a full meal.
Schools Division Superintendent Froserfina Bravo said the deworming tablet is being given to children from kindergarten to Grade 6 in public schools in the country for free every six months, which means that the next round will be in July this year. (AMM/PIA-1, Pangasinan)
