POPCOM to hold Region 2 media consultation on population and development

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (19 November) -- The Commission on Population(POPCOM) will conduct a one day consultation meeting with media practitioners in Cagayan Valley this month as one of the advocacy efforts geared towards the promotion of Responsible Parenting and Natural Family Planning(RP-NFP).

Avelino Marallag, POPCOM officer-in-charge for Cagayan Valley said the regional consultation meeting will be held on November 26 at the Genaros Bangus Grill in Santiago City.

The activity intends to update the participants on the status of implementation of the Responsible Parenting Movement and Natural Family Planning(RP-NFP) in the region and to formulate a dissemination plan utilizing the RP-NFP Broadcaster's Manual.

The meeting is also one of the activities lined up in the observance of Population and Development Week(POPDEV) from November 23-29, 2008 with the theme: "Sa Tamang Agwat ng Panganganak, Pamilya ay Aangat" that focuses on the importance of birth spacing.

Research show that proper birth spacing saves life and gives families more room to breathe, more time for each other and for themselves and have less financial stress, thereby improving their contribution to the development and progress of their community.

It added that babies born too close together are smaller and get less attention from their parents than those born at least two or three years apart. Families who space births have more time to be together with each other and each successive child. (bme/PIA NVizcaya) [top]
