Proclamation No. 540, dated January 20, 2004, declares the first week of October as the “National Newborn Screening Week”.  In celebration of this, the Department of Health – Central Luzon Center for Health Development (DOH-CLCHD), in partnership with the Newborn Screening Center - Central Luzon (NSC-CL), will conduct a fun run entitled “NBS aRUNkada” on October 12, 2019, Saturday, in Clark Freeport and Special Economic Zone, Pampanga.


Everyone is invited to join the said event! This will be a venue for all the stakeholders of the program to come together to boost the advocacy and increase public exposure of the nature and benefits of the Expanded Newborn Screening program. We believe that this activity will contribute largely in the attainment of the goal of the program which is to reduce preventable deaths in Filipino newborns due to congenital disorders through timely screening and proper management.


Let us work hand in hand to help save more babies from mental retardation and death.
