City and Municipal Health Officers and other representatives of the Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Project’s new partners convened in a tools development workshop on April 7-11. The event was held at D’Leonor Inland Resort and Adventure Park in Buhangin, Davao City.
The workshop aimed to collect inputs in order to adapt the project’s tools and information materials to the new partners’ respective branding and standards.
The new partners came from seven cities and municipalities in the Davao Region: the cities of Samal, Mati, Tagum, and Digos; and the municipalities of Malita, Nabunturan, and Monkayo.
In each site, Handicap International teamed up with the local government unit, health office, and hospital.
The tools were first used in Davao City, where the CVD Project started in 2007, aiming to increase access to diabetes and CVD risk factor management.
