Abilan, Buenavista – Various private companies with 200 workers or more in the region were trained on Responsible Parenthood and Family Planning (RPFP), organized by the Commission on Population and Development (POPCOM) Caraga in coordination with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Caraga.

As agency members of the POPCOM Board of Commissioners (BOC), POPCOM underscored that the activity aimed to assimilate the RPFP program in their respective workplace, incorporate in the HR budget, and extend the program to people’s organizations under their agency. 

Provision of RPFP information and services in the workplace both in the public and private sectors is one of the priority strategies under the said program.

The RPFP priority strategies are geared towards assisting couples to achieve their desired number, timing and spacing of children within the demand of responsible parenthood through effective family planning.

To further heighten its advocacy, POPCOM Caraga has recently conducted another RPFP in the Workplace Seminar-Workshop in Butuan City and Surigao del Norte, targeted the private companies with 200 employees and above.
