Following President Rodrigo Duterte's appeal to the public to have children vaccinated, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) rallies local government units (LGUs) to be proactive partners in the conduct of nationwide immunization campaign to address the measles outbreak.
"The measles outbreak was fueled by a scare which can be corrected through intensive information dissemination. The nationwide immunization campaign is a vehicle for us to reverse the measles outbreak and we turn to our LGUs to be our partners in encouraging parents to have their children immunized," says DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año.
