The first two (2) outreach activities conducted at the Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) and Jasaan Misamis Oriental in January and February respectively were intended for women who wanted the permanent method called the Bitaleral Tubal Lagation (BTL).  One hundred nine (109) women availed of the free service on BTL and underwent the procedure free of charge.  The ligation was performed by doctors from the different rural health units who were trained on the procedure.  BTL is a safe and simple surgical procedure which provides permanent contraception for women who do not want any more children.  It involves cutting or blocking the 2 fallopian tubes so that eggs released from the ovaries cannot move down the fallopian tubes to meet the sperm.  It is proven to be 99.5% effective.
