MANOLO FORTICH, Bukidnon (PIA)–In its desire to help couples or parents exercise responsible parenting to achieve desired number, timing, and spacing of their children, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)-10 and the Philippine Commission on Population (Popcom)-10 have collaborated by training the city links of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) assigned in Cagayan de Oro City.
Kenneth Haze Lustre, the regional program coordinator of 4Ps, said the partnership would pave the way for the zero unmet need for modern family planning through increased access to family planning information and services.
Lustre said the 14 city links of Cagayan de Oro City would roll out the family planning and responsible parenthood module of the Popcom-10 to the beneficiaries during the monthly Family Development (FDS) Sessions after the training.
Popcom-10 Regional Director Neil Adrin G. Omega disclosed that the 4Ps workers would also focus on teen moms and male partners to shape and mobilize men to be responsible individuals, parents, and partners for the welfare of all.
DSWD-10 Regional Director Mari-Flor A. Dollaga assured Popcom-10 that the 4Ps workers would help promote and implement the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health (RPRH) Law.
Dollaga said the partnership will help 4Ps beneficiaries become productive and independent individuals in the future. (DSWD-10/PIA-10)
