Throwback photo on Family Planning Advocacy featured at FP Voices of Johns Hopkins University and FP2020

Executive Director, Philippine Society of Reproductive Health Nurses
One of the key gaps in the implementation of the Responsible Parenthood & Reproductive Health Act, or the RP-RH Law, in the Philippines is the lack of competent and adequate health service providers to serve the entire population—especially the adolescents, young, people with disabilities, indigenous peoples, and marginalized populations. It is, therefore, imperative to invest in training and mentoring nurses to specialize their services to reproductive health and family planning. 

Another important aspect in the proper implementation of the RP-RH Law is for the government to look into its governance and leadership mechanisms and to make sure that systems in place—especially the bureaucracy–shall not hamper innovation and development.
