From Secretary Martin Andanar on the UN Lauding PRRD’s Reproductive Health Order, 14 Jan. 2017

The signing of the Executive Order on Reproductive Health reflects the President’s stance on the issue and shows his strong position on the importance of the implementation of Reproductive Health.

Reproductive health forms part of President Duterte’s 10 Point SocioEconomic Agenda.

To have a marked reduction of poverty incidence, the President’s economic managers believe that we must have strong economic growth and fast track the generation of millions of jobs in the next six years, complemented by the full implementation of the RH law.

We hope that with this order, we will have stronger collaboration with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the private sector, and international bodies like The United Nations Population Fund, to implement quality modern family planning information and services.
