On March 28, 2016, a LCPC (Local Council for Protection of Children) meeting was held at the barangay hall of Sicat, Alfonso, Cavite. (A part of the construction cost and materials of the barangay hall were contributed by AWH.)
Since LCPC’s aims include protection of women and children, AWH as a member of LCPC made an announcement that FriendlyCare now provides free hormonal implant as a contraceptive, instead of bilateral tubal ligation (BTL). FriendlyCare has been funded by UN Population Fund and previously provided free BTL. However, since UN replaced BTL method with hormonal implant, FriendlyCare follows the direction. When 60-100 women who are willing to receive the service gathered, FriendlyCare can dispatch health professionals to conduct free hormonal implants. Since the hormonal implant has not been approved by the Filipino Government yet, it cannot be conducted at government facilities but can be at any private rooms. Barangay Sicat health workers were interested and with a concent of municipal health officer Dr. Manzo, they were willing to assemble for free implant. It is said that for most of the women implant is effective for approximately 3 years.
