The Palawan Capitol’s health unit will continue to conduct Buntis Congress and Couples Congress in various local governments in Palawan.

The Capitol said that the initiatives are part of the Responsible Parenthood program of the Provincial Health Office (PHO).

“Layunin ng gawain na makapaghatid ng mahahalaga at wastong impormasyon kaugnay ng wastong pagpaplano ng pamilya gayundin ang pagtataguyod ng kalusugan ng pamilyang Palaweno,” the Capitol said.

Jenevil Tombaga, Program Manager of the Family Planning and Reproductive Health, explained that in Couples Congress is a program where they gather couples and help them build a healthy family.

“Dito sa couple’s congress, we include most especially ‘yong mga kalalakihan natin, kasi sila talaga ang magdadala ng kanilang pamilya , kaya ang dapat may desisyon unang-una ay si tatay, kasi siya ang haligi ng tahanan natin,” she said.

Meanwhile, Tombaga said that the Buntis Congress is a program which aims to promote health care for mothers and their children

“Dagdag pa ni Gng. Tombaga, pangunahing layunin ng gawaing ito na masolusyonan ang tumataas na bilang ng naitatalang kaso ng maternal death o pagkamatay ng mga buntis gayundin ang maagang pagbubuntis ng mga kabataan (teenage pregnancy),” the province said
