The meet, initiated by the Pampanga provincial government in coordination with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the City Government of San Fernando, was attended by officials of Barangays Dolores, San Jose, San Pedro, Sta. Lucia, San Nicolas and Sto. Nino.

Arturo Cacdac Jr., DILG Provincial Director Myrvi Fabia, PDEA Regional Director Jeoffrey Tacio and Center for Health Development (CHD) Regional Director Leonita Gorgolon.
