As we move towards yet another milestone of the Newborn Screening Program, we pay tribute to the commitment of the dedicated health care professionals and advocates behind the success of our program. From the challenges faced by the program pioneers to the hurdles brought about by the unexpected pandemic during the past years, our program continues to grow and expand, despite all the daunting tasks its stakeholders had to undertake.


The staunch advocates of the NBS program, through their consistent efforts, continuously find ways to come up with new advances and innovations to provide accessible and the highest quality of health care services to all the Filipino newborns, even in these trying times. And as such, we would like to recognize our newborn heroes who held on to their commitment and passion in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic to help the program inch toward its goal of saving babies from mental retardation and early death.


As we celebrate the National Newborn Screening Awareness Week, I invite you to join us virtually during the 20th Newborn Screening Convention on October 3-5, 2022, with the theme “Milestones and Advances in Newborn Screening”. This year, our distinguished speakers shall talk about program updates and developments in the treatment regimen of those affected with heritable disorders included in the Expanded NBS panel.


Together, let us work harder to help our babies grow healthy and strong because every newborn deserves to lead a normal life. Let us continue to put our burning passion to work in order to build a better future for the next generation.
