A call for the return of emergency contraceptives
Contraception is an integral part of family planning, and DKT Philippines Foundation has been providing programs and studies to aid Filipinos in their sexual and reproductive health. In one of their most recent polls, a great percentage of medical professionals—68%, to be exact—think that the Food and Drug Administration (DFA) should reconsider the 20-year-old ban on emergency contraceptive (EC) pills. “Our findings show that the Philippines’ own physicians agree by more than a two-thirds majority, particularly those active in reproductive health care,” Foundation Chairman Hyam Bolande shares. “In DKT’s online survey, only 3% of doctors said they believed EC pills to be a form of abortion and cited this as a reason not to prescribe them.” Depending on the type, EC pills can prevent pregnancy for up to 72 to 120 hours after unprotected intercourse. If readily available, a parallel study showed that Filipinas would be interested in using the ‘morning-after pill’ as contraception.
