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.

 

Pulutan Philippines Cuisine

Pulutan (from the Filipino word pulutin which literally means "something that is picked up") is a term roughly analogous to the English term "finger food". Originally, it was a snack accompanied with liquor or beer but has found its way into Philippine cuisine as appetizers or, in some cases, main dishes, as in the case of sisig.
