Provincial Population Office – Clinical Services

March 25, 2019

 

  The Provincial Population Office-Clinical Services continue to deliver free women’s reproductive health services in the province, particularly during the Serbisyong Tama Caravan (STC) program of Governor Ramil L. Hernandez.

   For the month of February 2019, these free services were conducted starting on the 12th in Brgy. Anos, Los Baños where 21 patients underwent Pap smear or Pap test, while 21 had visual inspections with acetic acid (VIA), used for detecting formation or presence of a new, abnormal growth of tissue in the cervix.

   On the 13th, eight received birth control implants, four had theirs removed, three had IUD insertions, and one had a Pap test in Nagcarlan, Laguna.  

   On the same day at the Rural Health Unit (RHU) in Liliw, nine patients received implants and six removals, two IUD insertions and two removals.

   During the STC in Brgy. Southville, Cabuyao on the 19th, 40 went through Pap tests, 9 implant insertions, and one IUD insertion, while at the RHU in Brgy. San Antonio In Kalayaan, 15 had Pap tests and five patients received family planning counselling.

    From the 20th to the 26th of the month, more women received reproductive health services.  Free bilateral tubal ligation (BTL) was conducted by staff of Dr. Fabella Memorial Hospital at the Bay District Hospital, benefitting 13 patients, while 9 received implants.

    In the last week of February,  62 women underwent VIA, Pap test, and breast exam in. Brgy. Lalakay, Los Baños;  and 27 had Pap tests during the STC at Sta. Cruz elementary School in Bay, Laguna.

    Finally on the 26th, the Clinical team dispensed 10 birth control pills, and one had Pap test at the STC in Brgy. Bagong Silang, Los Baños.  According to Midwife II Ms. Luzviminda Mariano who is assigned in Los Baños, Pap tests are regularly conducted in the area that’s why they had only one patient for the test.

    All of these services are being offered to women of reproductive age to help prevent cervical and breast cancers, and also to help them with family planning procedures, and other reproductive health issues.
