After a 14-year wait since the Philippine Legislators' Committee on Population and Development (PLCPD) made the first step to push for reproductive health policies, the Reproductive Health bill was finally signed into law by President Benigno S. Aquino III in December 2012 and upheld constitutional by the Supreme Court in April 2014. Despite this progress, Filipinos have yet to witness the real impact of the law on their lives.
In this second episode of the eKapihan Series by Mulat Pinoy-Kabataan News Network (MP-KNN), our guests talk about what we all need to know about the RH Law and how it can improve the lives of girls, women, families, and Filipinos.
MP-KNN's eKapihan Series is a videocast featuring experts alongside youth guests who explore and discuss the various issues of population and development, and their relevance and effects on the youth.
