MANILA, Philippines—More than 20 private firms in Quezon City have pledged to support family health programs being implemented in workplaces and offices in the city.

The companies signed a declaration of support inked by the city council on population, in which they promised to provide family planning and child health services to their workers.

“It’s to ensure that we have their commitment to improve family health programs such as consultations on family planning, maternal health care,” said Rose Marcelino, council vice chairman.

The declaration of support was signed at the recently held 1st Quezon City Family Health Congress. Julie M. Aurelio

State of the Nanay Address (SONA)

Dear Friends,

Greetings! The Reproductive Health Advocacy Network (RHAN) and Philippine Legislators Committee on Population and Development (PLCPD), together with other networks working for the passage of the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill, are doing a “State of the Nanay Address (‘SONA’)” on 22nd July, 2009 at the Bahay ng Alumni, UP Diliman, Quezon City.

Our ‘SONA’ is a spoof of the official State of the Nation Address to be delivered by the President of the Philippines on 27th July and will be participated in by at least 700 advocates, personalities, and legislators. The event aims to: (1) kick-off in a media-worthy manner the resumption of the advocacy for the immediate passage of the RH Bill by Congress; and (2) dramatically demonstrate to the President of the Philippines and legislators the urgent need for the Bills’ passage by presenting the real state of Filipino mothers.

As one of the Bill’s advocates, we are pleased to invite you to join us in the event. We would like to request you to wear Filipiniana on the said event.

The actual program will promptly start at 1:00 PM and will only last for one (1) hour.

We sincerely hope that you will accept this invitation. We will be contacting your office to follow this matter up. Should you have questions or clarifications, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Rhoda V. Avila or Ms. Vanessa T.P. Dugenia at 9271766 or 9266395 or mobile number 0917 8855782.

Kindly forward this message to your friends as well. Many thanks!
