Last March 26, 2019, Intellicare, together with Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), launched the fifth year of Safe Motherhood Caravan at Icasiano Health Center and Lying Inn Clinic, Pedro Gil St, Sta Ana, Manila. Approximately 200 women of reproductive age (WRA) attended the event.

Through the 25 caravans to be implemented nationwide this year, we aim to educate 5,000 WRA on Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Nutrition services (e.g. family planning, pre & post natal consultations, facility-based delivery, exclusive breastfeeding, child health and saving for health).

The safe motherhood program aims to contribute in lowering the maternal mortality in our country and promote safe journey to motherhood. In the past 4 years, we have already implemented 97 safe motherhood caravans and have reached 19,609 WRA nationwide.

Also, in our hope to help address the growing problem on teenage pregnancy, Intellicare and PBSP will provide training to 120 teenagers on adolescent reproductive health who will eventually conduct this training among youth in their respective communities.
