Sibog Katawhan alang sa Paglambo (SIKAP) in coordination with the Provincial Governor’s Office – Population Management Division conducts Forum on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights with the women’s organization Nagkahiusang Kababaihan sa Cagwait (NKC) in Unidad, Cagwait, Surigao del Sur on September 14-19, 2020.

The initiative is under the Sexual Health and Empowerment (SHE) Program of SIKAP which aims to mobilize the NKC to assist demand generation for Responsible Parenthood and Family Planning (RP-FP) Program of the Commission on Population and Development. The forum was done in two batches – first on September 14-16, 2020, and second on September 17-19, 2020. A total of 47 members of the NKC participated.

The forum focused on the women’s rights specifically the right to health, thereby introducing Executive Order No. 12 defining Zero Unmet Need on Family Planning. The participants were also oriented on profiling of Women of Reproductive Age (WRA) to identify unmet need.

The group was divided into sub-groups for planning workshop with their respective Barangay Captains, and select members of the council. The whole group will still convene for assessment and evaluation of the activity.
