Specifically, POPCOM would like to help couples / parents exercise responsible parenting to achieve their desired number, timing and spacing of their children, and to contribute in improving the maternal, neonatal and child health, and nutrition (MNCHN). POPCOM does these through the following:

  • Fund releases for the conduct of Responsible Parenting Classes in the barangays
  • Partnership with MSWD in the conduct of Family Development (FDS) Sessions in 4Ps areas in the region
  • Partnership with DOH in the Kalusugang Pangkalahatan (KP) through tracking of couples with unmet need in family planning during FDS sessions
  • Establishment and maintenance of an online web-based reporting system of couples reached
  • Conduct of capability building activities on Pre-Marriage Counseling for LGUs, and other related competencies
  • Development, production and dissemination of advocacy/ IEC materials
  • Observance of special population events (e.g. Natural Family Planning Week, Family Planning Month)
