Roots of Health, recently began a partnership with the Department of Health (DOH) and the Philippines Center for Population and Development (PCPD) to try to improve access to contraceptives in Palawan.
Filipino charity Roots of Health, recognised for its work providing pregnancy-related services and raising awareness of reproductive health rights and family planning, is one of 23 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) worldwide to receive a 2016 Stars Impact Award.
Palawan continues to battle maternal mortality – preventable deaths caused by complications of pregnancy and childbirth. We’ve trained our Community Health Advocates in recognizing warning signs of any danger during pregnancy and immediately after.
This has been our biggest and most impactful year yet – and we couldn’t have done our work without your generous support. Thank you for being a part of our journey in 2016.
We have passed the 100 day mark in his presidency, but to date President Duterte has not moved forward on his promise to support this Law. Women are waiting.
