Problem

The high unmet need for reproductive health services is unprecedented in Palawan. To respond to these needs, Roots of Health provides comprehensive, rights-based and free services to more than 16,000 women, girls and adolescents annually. Our nursing and midwife team provides family planning counseling, contraceptives, prenatal check-ups, and pap smears in our clinics in Puerto Princesa City, and also in the 3 communities we visit on a weekly basis. When funding is available, we also travel to far-flung parts of the province to provide services and information to the most isolated populations in the country.

Solution

Contraceptive Acceptors Program Clients select their preferred method of contraception after receiving contraceptive counseling from our nurse. Once clients decide which form they want, we provide it for free, and we’ll also remove it when she decides she is ready to get pregnant or is experiencing unwanted side-effects. Healthy Pregnancy Program Ensures that women in Puerto Princesa can access high-quality, comprehensive prenatal, birthing, and antenatal care in order to have the best pregnancy outcomes possible. Contraceptive Mission Trips Our clinical team conducts trips to isolated communities, so more women and adolescents have access to the services and information they need. The trips focus on contraceptive counseling and service provision and training local health care providers.
