Commitment

At the 2012 London Family Planning Summit The Philippines stated that it 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 committed $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. The Philippines is also intensifying efforts with partners who can help give women the information and counseling they need.
