Baguio Social Services: Baguio City, Islands Philippines

The health situation in the city has been steadily and satisfactorily maintained at normal levels over the past decade. This can be attested by widespread control of epidemics and communicable disease.

Improvements in the performance of the city's vital health statistics over the five year period is partly attributed to the intensified Population Control Program.

In terms of education, the City of Baguio has maintained its prominence as a center of education for higher learning in Northern Luzon. It has sustained a high literacy rate of 97.6% in 1990 and increased to 97.64% in 1996.

 

Northern Philippine Cuisine

For festive occasions, people band together and prepare more sophisticated dishes. Tables are often laden with expensive and labor-intensive treats requiring hours of preparation. In Filipino celebrations, lechón (also spelled litson) serves as the centerpiece of the dinner table. It is usually a whole roasted pig, but suckling pigs (lechonillo, or lechon de leche) or cattle calves (lechong baka) can also be prepared in place of the popular adult pig.
