It was truly a nationwide event.

The Volunteer Youth Leaders for Health (VLYH)–Philippines kicked off this year’s Newborn Screening
(NBS) Week with a bang as volunteers from all over the country united via social media campaigns and
simultaneous distribution of NBS pink brochures.

The Network’s members changed their profile pictures to an NBS-themed photo on Facebook and tweeted daily posts about NBS with the hashtag #NBSsaves on Twitter and other social media platforms from October 1 to 5. (Related Post: NBS Week 2013 Activities)
