Roots of Health (ROH)

Roots of Health, established in 2009, increases awareness of and access to family planning information and reproductive health services, including contraceptives. It currently supports tens of thousands of women and girls with contraceptive and healthy pregnancy services, as well as basic sex education, which is lacking in Palawan’s high schools and colleges. The organization also trains Youth Advocates who educate peers on reproductive health and provide referrals for reproductive health services and HIV testing. These advocates help ensure the sustainability of programmes. In 2019 the organization taught over 20,000 youth bringing the total number of young people taught in Palawan to over 85,000. In 2019 ROH also met the contraceptive needs of nearly 17,000 women and girls.
