  • MESSAGE
  • To highlight the Commission on Population’s commitment to public service, we have formulated POPCOM’s Citizen Charter that reflects the Organization’s standards in implementing our flagship programs. The Charter also essays the guiding principles the Organization follows as we serve our target clientele.
  • To ensure transparency, efficiency and effectiveness of service, we are providing the public with the step by step procedures in accessing POPCOM’s programs and projects; the key personnel responsible for each step and the maximum time to conclude the process. This Charter will be made available to POPCOM’s target clientele and downloadable from our website at www.popcom.gov.ph.
  • As we work for the vision of well-empowered, happy and healthy families, it is our hope that this Charter complements the National Government’s efforts in improving Public Service Delivery, Transparency and Accountability.

  • ABOUT THE COMMISSION ON POPULATION (POPCOM)
  • Historical Background
  • The legislative roots of the Commission of Population (POPCOM) can be traced back to December 1967, when President Ferdinand E. Marcos, together with 17 heads of state, signed the UN Declaration of Population. It was reinforced in February 19 1969, with the issuance of Executive Order No. 171, which established a 22-member Commission on Population to undertake and publish studies on all aspects of the Philippine Population and to formulate policy and program as they relate to socio-economic development. On May 15, 1970, Executive Order No.233 was issued to officially launch the Philippine Population Program. Republic Act 6365, enacted into law by Congress on August 16, 1971, established a National Population Policy and officially created the POPCOM as an agency.
  • Presidential Decree No. 79 issued on December 8, 1972 amended RA 6365. It mandated POPCOM to coordinate a population program, which was family planning and responsible parenthood oriented. The core of the program then was birth control -- limiting the number of children of each family through education and the use of contraceptives. This mandate (PD 79) remains to be the legal basis for POPCOM to continue to push for a population program that has expanded its focus to include not only fertility reduction but also other concerns such as family formation, status of women, child survival, migration and urbanization, mobility, mortality, etc.
  • On January 30, 1987, President Corazon C. Aquino issued Executive Order No. 123 reorganizing the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and made POPCOM one of its attached agencies. Later, Executive Order No. 160, which amended further PD No. 79, designated the Secretary of the DSWD as the Chairperson of the POPCOM Board of Commissioners.
  • In the 1990s, POPCOM took a paradigm shift in the population program by adapting a program that adheres to the fundamentals of human development. Executive Order No. 32 and Executive Order No. 307 issued by President Fidel V. Ramos on October 31, 1992 emphasized the promotion of the Philippine Family Planning Program as a priority government program.
  • With the new paradigm, the Philippine Population Program (PPP) was now called the Philippine Population Management Program (PPMP). The PPMP was based on the Population-Resources-Environment (PRE) framework of "securing a proper balance among the three factors to achieve improved quality of life by creating the proper environment for more harmonious growth and by integrating population dimension in socio-economic development and environment management policies."
  • Commission on Population
  • "PRE means that in order to have population (P) that is healthy, educated, and gainfully employed, etc., we need to have adequate fiscal resources (R) for education, health and other services, and a healthy environment and natural resources base (E). With a quality population (P), we shall be able to generate more economic growth (R) and to preserve our natural resources and environment."
  • Another milestone happened on March 24, 2004 when President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo issued Executive Order No. 188 transferring the Commission on Population from the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) to the Office of the President and placing it under the control and supervision of the Department of Health (DOH). This EO is primarily responsible for making Responsible Parenting and Natural Family Planning (RP-NFP) as the flagship program, with the Responsible Parenting Movement as the strategy, of the Commission on Population. The RPM is a nationwide grassroots strategy to mobilize parents/couples to make them aware of their responsibilities as parents and as citizens. The four pillars of 1) Responsible Parenthood; 2) Respect for Human Life; 3) Birth Spacing; and 4) Informed Choice guides the implementation of the RP-NFP/RPM.
  • History at a glance:
  • 1967 Seventeen heads of state including the Philippine President signed the United Nations Declaration on Population, which stressed that “The population problem must be recognized as a principal element in long-ranged planning if governments are to achieve their economic goals and fulfill the aspirations of their people.”
  • 1970 The Philippine Population Program was officially launched through Executive Order No. 233. The Commission on Population (POPCOM) was mandated to serve as the central coordinating and policy-making body of the government in the field of population.
  • 1971 Congress enacted into law Republic Act 6365, known as the Population Act of the Philippines. It stated that, “For the purpose of furthering national development, increasing the share of each Filipino in the fruits of economic progress and meeting the grave social and economic challenge of a high rate of population growth, a national program of family planning which respects the religious beliefs of the individual involved shall be undertaken.”
  • 1972 Presidential Decree 79 was signed directing public and private sectors to undertake a National Family Planning Program that respects the religious beliefs and values of individuals.
  • 1973 The Philippine Constitution expressed the commitment of government to deal with the problem of rapid population growth. It provided that, “It should be the responsibility of the state to achieve and maintain population levels most conductive to the national welfare.”
  • 1975 Presidential Decree 166 further strengthened the Program. It required the participation of private organization and individuals in the formulation and implementation of population programs and policies.
  • Commission on Population
  • 1986 Executive Order No. 123 attached the Population Commission to the Department of Social and Welfare Development (DSWD), as the population planning and coordinating agency.
  • 1987 The POPCOM Board of Commissioners issued a Policy Statement under the Aquino Administration that says, “The ultimate goal of the Population Program is the improvement of the quality of human life in a just and humane society.... The achievement of this goal requires a recognition of the close interrelationships among population, resources, and environmental factors.”
  • 1990 Executive Order No. 408 was issued placing POPCOM under the control and supervision of the Office of the President in order to “facilitate coordination of policies programs relative to population.”
  • 1991 Executive Order No. 467 was issued making POPCOM an attached agency of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).
  • 2004 President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo issued Executive Order No. 188 transferring the Commission on Population from the NEDA to the Office of the President and placing it under the control and supervision of the Department of Health (DOH).
  • The POPCOM Logo
  • The POPCOM logo is an inspiring reminder that the Commission is working for
  • the welfare of the family and the people. It is a representative form of all types of family and people. The adjoined loops connote interrelationship of togetherness, whether in connection with a family or with individuals in a community. Completing the logo is a circle enveloping the symbolic family or community, signifying that the family and the individual in the community are the focus of all efforts of POPCOM.
  • Programs and Projects
  • The Philippine Population Management Program has three (3) major components, namely:
    • Responsible Parenthood/Reproductive Health (RP/RH) Program;
    • Adolescent Health and Youth Development (AHYD) Program
    • Population and Development (POPDEV) Integration;
  • 1. The RP/RH Program is based on the four pillars of the population policy of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, as follows:
      • a. Responsible Parenthood;
      • b. Birth Spacing;
      • c. Respect for Life; and
      • d. Total Informed Choice.
  • According to the Local Government Code of 1991 (RA 7160), reproductive health services and family planning are devolved to local government units.
  • Commission on Population
  • 2. The AHYD Program aims to improve the total well-being (physical, emotional, spiritual, and economic status) of young people aged 15-24 years old.
  • 3. The Population and Development Planning (POPDEV) aims to integrate population concerns at all levels of development planning.
  • The gender and resource mobilization components of the program cut across these major components.
  • Roles and Functions
  • POPCOM, the agency mandated to be the overall policy making, coordinating and monitoring body of the PPMP, has the following roles:
  • Policy formulation and plan development. POPCOM will spearhead the development and preparation of the Philippine population policies and operational plans in consultation with the various program stakeholders: GOs, NGOs, LGUs, media, women, youth and parliamentarians. POPCOM shall provide technical leadership in assisting agencies to integrate population and development concerns in their respective development policies, plans and programs. It will provide technical assistance to LGUs in the preparation and implementation of their population management policies and programs.
  • Advocacy and Communication. POPCOM will lead the call for GOs, LGUs, private sector, and civil society to assist parents achieve their fertility goals. POPCOM will spearhead the development of core messages that will promote Responsible Parenthood and Family Planning to achieve the desired number and spacing of children of couples and their direct contributions to well being.
  • Data and Information Management. POPCOM will take the lead in developing a national database to monitor and evaluate the implementation of the ICPD Programme of Action. It will serve as a clearinghouse and information resource center on population and family planning, and will provide coordinated direction to all participating agencies in the development of their plans and programs. It will document and disseminate progress made in the population program through the publication of the annual “State of the Philippine Population Report.”
