Mrs. Domantay Educates Calit ES Pupils the Facts, Benefits of Vitamin A

         Vitamin A deficiency causes blindness, impaired immune function, poor iron metabolism, and acute respiratory infections in children.

             In support of the National Vitamin A Supplementation Program, Mrs. Josephine N. Domantay, the hardworking SDO1 Medical Representative, shared her knowledge about what is Vitamin A deficiency and Vitamin A facts and benefits before the learners take the oral capsule on January 13, 2020. 

            Vitamin A supplementation is indeed important to alleviate Vitamin A deficiency. Likewise, a combination of food fortification, promotion of locally available and culturally acceptable Vitamin A--rich foods and other public health measures will also bolster a sustained eradication of Vitamin A deficiency as a public health problem.
