FDA SOLVES CERTIFICATION ISSUE ON IMPLANTS, EXPECTS TRO TO BE LIFTED THIS MONTH
The Department of Health (DOH) clarified today that the decision of the Supreme Court issued last April 26, 2017 on the Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) of subdermal contraceptives recertification and ban on implants has not become permanent.
 
The Supreme Court merely noted that the DOH and Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) must now comply with its April 26 decision.
 
“The TRO will be lifted once FDA has determined that implants and other contraceptives are non-abortifacient. It is expected that by the end of this month, FDA will issue its findings on all contraceptives and certifications will be issued accordingly”, Health Secretary Paulyn Jean Rosell-Ubial explained.
 
The Secretary also assured the public that available supplies of contraceptives may still be accessed by the public through the Rural Health Units, as well as partner hospitals and non-government service providers.
 
Once the TRO is lifted, the people can be assured that the provisions of the RPRH Law will be implemented without restraints and in full compliance,” Secretary Ubial concluded.
