To raise awareness on the issues on poor or lack of family planning, effects of teenage pregnancies and irresponsible parenting, the City Population Office (CPO) headed by Dr. Camille Peñalosa continues to implement several programs to address these issues.

One of these is KAlalakihang Tapat sa Responsibilidad at Obligasyon sa PAmilya (KATROPA) which aims to empower men and promote male involvement in maternal and child health. The CPO conducts KATROPA orientation in the different barangays in the city with the recent one being held in Barangay Tangke last October 14, 2020.

On October 23, PopDev Region 7 and the CPO will also facilitate family planning sessions for 40 IPs from “Antikihan” in Barangay South Poblacion.

As part of skills enhancement, all nurses and midwives at the City Infirmary undertook an IV Insertion Training last October 12 and 14 which was conducted by the BD IV trainors.
