Ilocos Sur’s 34th NSM celebration kicks off on health stat-focused info drive

VIGAN CITY, Ilocos Sur (PIA) — The 34th National Statistics Month (NSM) celebration in this province officially launched with a data dissemination activity that focused on health statistics.

It was conducted on Thursday, October 5 at the Provincial Farmers Livelihood Development Center (PFLDC) in Vigan City through the Provincial Statistics Committee (PSC) composed of various government agencies led by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Ilocos Sur.

With the theme “Accelerating Progress: Promoting Data and Statistics for Healthy Philippines,” this year’s NSM celebration emphasizes the importance of data and statistics in enhancing health outcomes through health-related statistics.

In the Ammuentayo radio program on Sunday, October 8, Jeanette Marzan, head of PSA-Ilocos Sur and vice-chairperson of the PSC said that the event was “loaded with information, especially on health.”

She said, “Aligned ito sa program ng Department of Health na Healthy Pilipinas. So, most of the statistics presented during the information drive were about health. Dito natin makikita ang kahalagahan ng estadistika sa kalusugan—para ma-align natin ng maayos ang iba’t ibang programa ng mga ahensya lalong-lalo na ng DOH.”

“This is to improve the socio-economic and health outcomes of our agencies dahil alam natin that health is everyone’s concern,” she added.
