To correctly implement the RPFP program in Northern Mindanao, the Regional Population Office-10 conducted an orientation on informed choice and voluntarism (ICV). This was conducted last October 13-17, at the De Luxe Hotel in Cagayan de Oro City. Fifty-one (51) provincial, city and municipal officers attended this activity. The 51 population officers were oriented about the important principles of ICV. Being supervisors of the barangay population officers (BSPOs) in the different areas of Northern Mindanao, the P/CPOs need to know about the ICV for them to echo the information to the BSPOs they supervise. The main topic of the orientation was about the Department of Health Administrative Order (A) #2011-0005. The said AO mandates all health workers especially providers of family planning services and commodities to strictly observe and comply with the guideline of ICV in giving family planning services. During the orientation, the principles of informed choice and voluntarism as well as the rights of the clients were thoroughly discussed. This is to make sure the participants fully understood each provision of AO#2011-0005. The Family Planning Program Coordinator of DOH-10 Ms. Marivic dela Fuente was one of the resource persons of this activity.
