OBSERVANCE OF THE FAMILY PLANNING MONTH [DILG_MC2020-109]

The month of August is observed as Family Planning (FP) Month to create awareness and benefits of the FP in the attainment of a better quality of life.

The COVID-19 pandemic has a huge implication in the reproductive behaviors of the individuals; thus it is important to ensure that FP services, along with other essential and reproductive health services, are available and accessible by the public. These health services need to continue both in the community and in health facilities in parallel with the activation of an emergency response plan.

In response to this and fully commemorate this event, the month of August is observed as Family Planning Month pursuant to DOH Department Memorandum No. 2020-0315.
