BANGI, 14 Jan (Bernama) – Kementerian Kesihatan hari ini melancarkan kempen

''1,000 Hari Pertama Kehidupan'' Ke Arah Generasi Sihat, satu inisiatif untuk

memerangi obesiti dan penyakit tidak berjangkit.

Menteri Kesihatan Liow Tiong Lai berkata kempen itu merupakan satu pakej

penjagaan kesihatan dan pemakanan yang bermula dari awal kehamilan sehingga anak

mencapai umur dua tahun.

"Kajian telah menunjukkan bahawa penjagaan kesihatan yang sempurna dalam

tempoh masa ini adalah amat penting dan kritikal.

"Ia dilihat sebagai satu peluang keemasan bagi usaha pencegahan awal masalah

penyakit tidak berjangkit seperti diabetes, penyakit kardiovaskular, kanser dan

lain-lain," katanya pada majlis pelancaran kempen itu di Klinik Kesihatan Bandar

Seri Putra hari ini.

Beliau berkata sehubungan itu, kesemua 800 Klinik Ibu dan Anak di seluruh

negara akan mengikuti inisiatif ini untuk memastikan penjagaan kesihatan

kedua-duanya, terutama dalam tempoh 1,000 hari pertama kehidupan.

LIOW-KESIHATAN 2 BANGI

"Kementerian Kesihatan sentiasa memberi penekanan serius kepada aspek

kesihatan dan pemakanan seawal prakehamilan. Sehubungan itu, semua ibu

mengandung dan bayi harus mengikut program ini... tidak kira mereka pergi ke

klinik swasta atau kerajaan, nasihat yang diberi telah diselaraskan," katanya.

Liow berkata kesihatan ibu dan anak berkait rapat dengan penyakit tidak

berjangkit khususnya masalah kurang berat lahir serta kurang zat makanan yang

akan menyumbang kepada masalah obesiti, darah tinggi, penyakit jantung dan

diabetes.

Selain itu, ibu yang obes dan menghidap diabetes semasa mengandung turut

menyumbang kepada permasalahan.

"Taraf kesihatan dan pemakanan ibu hamil serta kanak-kanak di Malaysia

secara amnya telah bertambah baik apabila masalah kekurangan zat besi atau

anemia di kalangan ibu hamil telah berkurangan daripada 32.6 peratus pada tahun

2005 kepada 14.5 peratus sehingga September tahun lepas.

"Peratus bayi kurang berat lahir di Malaysia (kurang 2.5 kilogram) yang

dikaitkan dengan kualiti penjagaan ibu semasa hamil, mencatat pencapaian yang

lebih baik iaitu 11 peratus berbanding kadar global iaitu 15 peratus," katanya.

Liow turut menyeru semua pihak yang terlibat dengan penjagaan ibu dan anak,

sama ada secara langsung atau tidak langsung, agar memastikan penjagaan

kesihatan serta pemakanan ibu hamil dan kanak-kanak.

Untuk ibu hamil, beliau berkata mereka harus mendapatkan pemeriksaan

antenatal pertama sebelum 12 minggu kandungan dan mengekalkan paras hemoglobin

sekurang-kurangnya 11 peratus sepanjang tempoh kehamilan.

Selain itu, ibu hamil harus memastikan kenaikan berat badan sesuai dengan

tempoh kehamilan iaitu 0.5 kilogram setiap bulan bagi lima bulan pertama, dan

0.5 kilogram setiap minggu bagi bulan seterusnya.

"Ibu hamil harus memastikan kesihatan gigi dan mulut berada dalam keadaan

yang baik, menyusu anaknya dengan susu ibu sahaja dari lahir sehingga berumur

enam bulan, dan meneruskannya sehingga mencapai umur dua tahun. Makanan

pelengkap perlu diberikan mulai umur enam bulan," katanya.

Bagi kanak-kanak pula, Liow berkata mereka perlu diberi imunisasi mengikut

jadual bermula daripada lahir sehingga 18 bulan, dan memulakan pemeriksaan gigi

di klinik seawal usia setahun.

"Kanak-Kanak mesti menerima perkhidmatan kesihatan secara berkala untuk

memastikan penilaian dan panduan yang mencukupi mengenai tumbesaran dan

perkembangan, status pemakanan dan tahap kesihatan mereka secara keseluruhan,"

katanya.
