With the theme, “Sa PPAN: Sama-sama sa Nutrisyong Sapat Para sa Lahat!”, Dayanghirang called for full cooperation of all nutrition advocates and stakeholders in implementing the Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition (PPAN) for 2023-2028.

“This is a call for action for everyone present today,” she said in a speech in South Cotabato Gymnasium and Cultural Center in Koronadal City.

Dayanghirang explained that PPAN aims to reduce all forms of malnutrition across all life stages and include interventions that focus on healthier diets, better practices, and improved access to quality services.

“This year is a milestone year for us as we are commemorating the golden year anniversary of the National Nutrition Council,” she added.
