Various groups commend our President, Hon. Benigno S. Aquino III for including the comprehensive responsible parenthood and reproductive health bill as one of the priority measures included in the Legislative Executive Development Advisory Council (LEDAC).
“I commend PNOY for standing firm on his position on the RP-RH bill. His action just shows that he is listening to the voices of his constituents and this can help fast track the debate in both houses.” said by Dr. Eden Divinagracia, executive director of PNGOC.
“The Filipino people are longing for a national policy that can help in giving them adequate information and services pertaining to Responsible Parenthood-Reproductive Health. It has been more than 15 years since the first RH bill has been filed in congress and I believe that with PNOY as president, passage of this bill is imminent” added by Dr. Divinagracia.
PNGOC or the Philippine NGO Council on Population, Health and Welfare Inc. (PNGOC) is a national umbrella organization with 97-members, national and local based NGOs involved in the promotion of reproductive health care such as maternal and child health, family planning, men’s reproductive health, women empowerment, STI/HIV/AIDS, sexuality education, reproductive and sexual health and gender and development.
