To further advance POPCOM-10’s commitment in addressing the unmet need for modern family planning, POPCOM now provides services on Progestin-only Subdermal Implants (PSI). More than 600 clients were provided by POPCOM with PSI in partnership with the LGUs. Details are as follow:
|Damulog, Bukidnon||80 Clients|
|Baungon, Bukidnon||150 Clients|
|Quezon, Bukidnon||240 Clients|
|Libona, Bukidnon||73 Clients|
|Sumilao, Bukidnon||78 Clients|
|Cagayan de Oro City||50 Clients|
DOH provided the PSPI while the LGUs generated the clients through the BPVs and BHWs. POPCOM provided lunch to the clients so that they would not need to go home for lunch.
The three (3) nurses of POPCOM-10 who were trained and certified as a provider on PSI by the Department of Health and Mindanao Health joined in the activities as service providers. These nurses are Jeremias Cabasan-Information Officer III, Karen Fernandez- Administrative Assistant II and Kelly Igtos- FP Logistics Assistant.
