The issuance of the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Law in 2012 is considered landmark legislation in the country’s history and has laid down the legislative foundation in achieving reproductive health and rights for all. In July of 2017, the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2017-2022 was formally introduced, in which FP was identified as a pivotal intervention in realizing the country’s demographic dividend and also its Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The Philippines government commits to providing family planning services to poor families with zero co-payment and to upgrading public health facilities and increasing the number of health service providers. As a part of this effort, the country’s Health Insurance program administered by the Philippines Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) now covers 91% of the total number of cities and municipalities in the country.
Philippines FP2020 Commitment
The Philippines has long believed that access to family planning information, services and supplies is a fundamental and essential right that is key to inclusive growth and sustainable development. The government is working to establish a national policy on reproductive health and population development, and to allocate funds to implement this vital policy. The Philippines will commit $15 million in 2012 for the purchase of family planning commodities for poor women with an unmet need. Family planning services will be provided to poor families with zero co-payment. In addition, the government will be upgrading public health facilities and increasing the number of health service providers who can provide reproductive health information. We are also intensifying efforts with partners who can help give women the information and counseling they need.
