Population program addresses local population issues

BUENAVISTA, Agusan del Norte, May 24 -- The Commission on Population and Development Caraga (POPCOM) came out with the 2020-2022 thrust of the Philippine Population Management or PPMP to primarily address key population issues in their locality.
In the full implementation of Supreme Court Mandanas-Garcia Ruling, POPCOM Caraga took the lead in preparing the necessary financial and logistical assistance to LGUs to ensure the long-term implementation of its key strategies, particularly at the grassroots level.
POPCOM Caraga Regional Director Alexander A. Makinano expresses his gratitude to local government units that took the initiative in ensuring the agency's program mandate has a solid foundation and encourages all local chief executives and population officers to continue their duties and responsibilities in promoting empowered families and communities.
The Philippine Population Management Program enables couples to achieve their desired number and spacing of children while adhering to the demands of responsible parenthood. POPCOM is campaigning that If every Filipino family becomes well-planned, they will have a greater opportunity and capacity to innovate for each family member's well-being and development. Each Filipino becomes a more empowered human resource as a result.
The PPMP will be pursued through the main program components of: Responsible Parenthood and Family Planning (RP-FP), Adolescent Health and Development, and Population and Development (POPDEV) Integration. (Matt Joe Ian F. Gonzaga, POPCOM Caraga/PIA Caraga)
