The Volunteer Youth Leaders for Health - Philippines (VYLH-Philippines) and The UPLB Genetics Society (GeneSoc) expanded the reach of the K4Health (Kabataan for Health) project by establishing the second community-based youth organization in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro, July 1-2.
K4Health (Kabataan for Health) is a project initiated by the VYLH-Philippines and GeneSoc which promotes the mobilization of the youth towards larger newborn screening coverage, folic acid promotion, and birth defects prevention. The four “Ks” stands for “Kabataang Kabalikat ng Komunidad para sa Kalusugan,” emphasizing the role of the youth in effecting change in our community.
