January 30: General Assembly and FGD
This time, it was the turn of the community people to know the results of the survey. We discussed with them what the problems were and how these problems affected their health. Later that day, we grouped the community people by purok for their Focused Group Discussion (FGD) wherein we assessed their behaviors towards the problems. Through FGD, we were able to identify risk factors and practices contributing to the problems. We also asked for their suggested strategies and plans in tackling and solving their problems.
