NST will also seek to reach 90 percent of pregnant and lactating mothers with post-partum family planning counseling sessions. And finally, NTS will train nurses, human resources staff, and peer health educators on family planning methods and counseling in order to connect employees directly with services

By the end of the 2018, NST Global Corporation seeks to achieve the following workplace family planning program objectives for the company’s two subsidiaries in the Philippines, Hamlin Industrial Corporation and Reliance Apparel Fashion and Manufacturing Corporation:

  • With its 6,000 total employees, NST shall ensure that 100% of all employees of reproductive age shall have access to FP information through the provision of regular family planning education;
  • With its 6,000 total employees, NST shall ensure that at least 70% of employees with modern FP unmet needs shall be given access to modern FP services based on informed choice and voluntarism, thus reducing unplanned pregnancies. Employees who have unmet need for modern family planning are those who express their intentions of not having children and voluntarily decide to use modern contraceptives and yet are not able to use modern FP methods for various reasons.
  • With its 4,500 women employees, NST shall ensure that at least 90% of post-partum employees shall have access to FP information and services to enable them to space or plan their births.
    NST Global Corporation, through the above two subsidiaries, is a supplier for leading global brands such as Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren, J. Crew and J. Jill.

A total of 6,000 workers are employed in the two manufacturing facilities in the Philippines; 75% (or 4,500) of these are women of reproductive age. Of the two companies, Hamlin was the first company to introduce modern family planning under the UNFPA’s Business Action for Family Planning (BAFP) project in 2015. Early this year (2017), NST started its family planning program at Reliance.

Hamlin Industrial Corporation has been in the manufacturing/exporting business for over 20 years, with current manpower of around 2,300, 76% female. In line with NST’s corporate statement, “committed to the improvement of the quality of life of our employees and the community”, the company is responding to the call to action to address the significant challenge in family planning today. Hamlin is implementing a workplace family planning program that includes awareness raising, access to commodities and service provision.

As part of capacity building, Hamlin partners with UNFPA, ECOP and Friendly Care to provide FP training for nurses, HR Staff and Peer Health Educators on Family Planning Modern Methods, Social Marketing and FP Counselling. The trained nurses conduct family planning lectures quarterly to raise the awareness of the workers on the different modern family planning methods. Two of the 12 trained nurses are trained FP trainers under the Business Action for Family Planning (BAFP) project and will be mentoring other nurses from BAFP Phase 2 partner companies during on site FP training. The trained nurses will also provide technical assistance to Reliance Apparel during their launching of FP program and FP activities and training sessions. Hamlin also incorporates FP learning session during Mother’s Class to prepare women to plan about FP even before giving birth.

As part of BAFP Phase 1 partner companies, Hamlin had been regularly conducting on-site FP counselling and services to their employees. To date, there are 123 women who received implants for free and 308 new users of modern methods.
