PPO-Clinical serves Persons Deprived of Liberty

Provincial Population Office-Clinical Services
October 2, 2020
 

On the 3rd week of September 2020, the Provincial Population Office- Clinical Services (PPO-Clinical) headed by Dra. Elizabeth Tabirao conducted medical checkup for Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDLs) at the Sta. Cruz Municipal Jail (SCMJ).

The PDLs had to undergo checkup before being transferred to the Laguna Provincial Jail (LPJ) to ensure not only their wellbeing but also of those detained at LPJ.

Meanwhile, the Clinical team also conducted 15 contraceptive implant (Implanon) removals in Luisiana, Laguna as the said implants were nearing the expiration dates.

PPO-Clinical continues its program in Family Planning awareness, free Pap smear tests and lectures in women’s health which were conducted in different municipalities in Laguna.

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

Throughout all these activities, prevention guidelines against COVID-19 were strictly observed during clinical procedures. Wearing of face shields and face masks was required to avoid the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19.
