Pilot Testing of AV & Print Materials on Calendar Rhythm and other NFP Methods - Phase 2

Code:    Proj-499
Date:    08/01/1996 - 02/01/1999
Duration: 30 Months

This project developed and produced NFP instructional materials for NFP teachers and acceptors. The project had two components: research and training. The research component assessed the knowledge through time of the NFP service providers and NFP acceptors before and after the introduction of the instructional materials. The training component enabled the NFP service providers to maximize the use of the instructional materials. In 1996, NFP Centers offered various modes of service delivery-whether these were based at home, in the hospital, community, church, industry, or local government units. PCPD negotiated with potential NFP Centers to participate in the pilot testing of the materials. Seven NFP Centers signed the agreement: Balikatan sa Kaunlaran, Sorsogon Chapter; Ben Hur Z. Mobo Move Aklan Forward Foundation; Bulacan Provincial Health Office; Central Azucarera Don Pedro, Batangas; Del Monte Phils, Inc., Cagayan de Oro; Family Planning Organization of the Philippines, Laguna Chapter; and San Isidro Network Community FP/MCH Clinic, Davao Oriental. After the results of the training and research components attested the effectiveness of the package, the materials were mass-produced. As a result, couples and NFP teachers practiced NFP as a new alternative method.
