The Institute for Occupational Health and Safety Development (IOHSAD) concluded one among a series of scheduled women health training last December 15, 2009 at the Barangay 102, Vitas, Tondo, Manila. A total of 25 women attended the training focused on providing information on hygiene and environmental health.

“We focused on the primary health issues faced by the population of Vitas. Based on our continuing health surveillance, many have outstanding health problems, among them respiratory and skin ailments,” explained Emma Celada, Health Services Program Coordinator of IOHSAD.

The area, Barangay 102 in Vitas, stands beside the new garbage dump in Metro Manila. Many of the women who attended the training collects garbage to be sold to recycling centers or repacks garlic bulbs.

The health training is part of the Women and Child Labor program of IOHSAD and is supported by the Australian People for Health, Education and Development Abroad or APHEDA.
