There is no greater gift for Filipino mothers than the immediate and effective implementation of the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health (RPRH) Law following the declaration of its constitutionality in April.
As we celebrate this year's Mother's Day, Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) Chairperson Remedios Rikken emphasized that "every mother deserves quality and comprehensive healthcare, thus making the RH Law a victory of Filipino women."
Thirty-seven individuals from national government agencies (NGAs), local government units (LGUs), civil society organizations (CSOs), academe and civil society organizations were certified as Gender and Development (GAD) Resource (GR) Pool members by the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) on March 26, 2014 at the Hotel Kimberly, Taft, Manila.
The Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) is set to announce the country's first most gender-responsive government agency on March 28, 2014.
The PCW has shortlisted Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Technical Education Skills (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority), as the agencies whose qualifications met the "GADtimpala's" basic eligibility criteria.
