For women like Paunil, birth control methods were accessible because she lives close to a clinic of Likhaan Center for Women's Health. 

"I decided to get an implant because there was no way we would survive [if we have] another child," said Paunil. A birth control implant is about the size of a matchstick. It is inserted inside a woman’s upper arm and releases hormones to prevent women from getting pregnant.

#DasurvKoTo: a Sexual and Reproductive Health Fair Highlighting Young Women’s Empowerment

In celebration of women’s month, Likhaan and our affiliate community-based women and youth organizations, in partnership with other community youth organizations and NGOs, cooked up a fair for young women to learn, love, and express themselves more; strengthen their physical and decision-making capacities; and engage with sexual and reproductive health providers and other social service providers for young people.


The theme, #DasurvKoTo, a youth jargon translating to “I deserve”), refers to what they think are their entitlements are for which they demand: Kilalanin, Igalang, Pahalagahan (“Recognize”, “Respect”, “Value”).
