Indeed, 2016 is a challenging year for us. A new administration, under the leadership of President Rodrigo R. Duterte, posed a challenge for the attainment of “zero unmet need for modern family planning” to all concerned agencies. This challenge is for the full implementation of Republic Act No. 10354 otherwise known as the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012. Unmet need for modern family planning refers to women capable of becoming pregnant and giving birth who are not using contraception but wish to postpone their next childbirth or stop childbearing altogether.

As the lead agency in implementing the Philippine Population Management Program in Regions IV-CALABARZON, the Commission on Population (POPCOM) Region IV is ready to take the challenge.

This website showcases the various demand generation activities, which include orientations and trainings of POPCOM Region IV for its Local Government Units, partner agencies and civil society organizations.

There are a number of ways to respond to President Duterte's directive and these activities are just some of them. Although trials and hurdles are very much a part of the journey towards success, POPCOM Region IV, being an organization that works for the empowerment of Filipino families, is ready to face this task head on.

Let's continue to empower more Filipino families and communities!
