ISDN1POPCOM IV is pilot-testing the Information and Service Delivery Network (ISDN) for Adolescent Health and Development (AHD) project in the City of Bacoor which will adopt and promote the establishment of the ISDN for the IsCool Teen Center (ITC) at the Bacoor National High School (BNHS) Bacoor City.

POPCOM Region IV recognizes the important role of adolescents and youth in the   human and socio-economic development of an area
so recognizes that addressing these critical concerns affecting young people needs the close collaboration and collective actions from all stakeholders including the concerned local government departments, civil society organizations particularly those providing services for young people’s concerns, and the   religious and private sectors, for more strategic and effective interventions.

The ISDN links information and service delivery interventions for adolescent and youth health-related needs, and develop partnerships that are interagency, for comprehensive provision of health and development interventions for young people in Bacoor City.

Adolescent Health and Youth Development

Program Manager:     Ms. Magdalena G. Abellera   -   Regional Director, RPO V

Assistant:                   Mr. Reynaldo O. Wong          -    Regional Director, RPO IX

The Adolescent Health and Youth Development Program (AHYDP) is one of the key component programs of the Philippine Population Management Program (PPMP).  The overall goal of the AHYD Program is to contribute to the improvement and promotion of the total well-being of young Filipinos ages 10-14; 15-19 and 20-24 through their sexual and reproductive health.   Specifically it aims to contribute to the reduction of the incidence of teenage pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV/AIDS among young people which are aligned with the thrusts of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Program of Action (PoA).

As the government agency tasked to manage the AHYD Program, the Philippine Commission on Population leads in the coordination and monitoring of relevant initiatives in the areas of:

  • Policy support
  • Service delivery
  • Capacity building
  • Advocacy and information, communication and education (IEC)    
  • Research and  management information system 

Moreover, the Commission works hand in hand with the Department of Health and other stakeholders both public and private in linking demand and services through the development and piloting of demand generation strategies and conduct of researches that merit appropriate policy and program responses.  The efforts of the Commission involve and target the various level of stakeholders including the young people themselves as the primary stakeholder, the family, specifically the parents as primary sexuality educators and the school, government, church and media as supporting institutions.  With concerted efforts, necessary services and information which are crucial to the development of the total well-being of the young people will be made available wherever they go--- home, school, church and community.
