Family Planning Program

Family planning is among the strategies of the country in reducing unintended pregnancies thereby reducing the incidence of unsafe abortions and maternal deaths.

It is estimated that around 8 million women are using modern methods of contraception in the Philippines. As a result of contraceptive use, approximately 3 million unintended pregnancies will be prevented, 700,000 unsafe abortions will be averted and consequently, 1,000 maternal deaths will be averted.

Hence, the National Family Planning Program aims to ensure equitable access to FP information and services to all regardless of marital, socioeconomic status, religion, ethnicity, and in any situation such as during health emergencies and disasters. The program aims to increase modern contraceptive use and decrease unmet need to achieve an 85% demand satisfied with modern FP methods by the year 2030.


By the end of 2030, all Filipinos enjoy a healthy and productive life and are empowered to make informed decisions in family planning and in their reproductive health and rights.


In line with the Department of Health Health Sector Strategy, Universal Health Care framework and FP2030 Commitment, the Family Planning Program is committed to provide responsive policy direction and ensure universal access of Filipinos to correct information, medically safe, legal, non-abortifacient, effective, and culturally acceptable modern family planning (FP) methods.
