The importance of Family Planning Awareness in PNG

A Volunteer Director for the PNG Family Health Association in Bulolo believes rural and urban communities should work to balance population growth and existing resources.

Zanie Yosi,  says  more awareness needs to be carried out  to educate the people on  family planning methods that are available.

The PNG Family Health Association is one of the biggest NGOs in the country.

The organisation has two main branches in Morobe, one in Mutzing in the Markham District, and the other in Bulolo.

They disseminate  information and educate communities and individuals on  family planning methods  related issues.

During the Bulolo Show over the weekend, the volunteers took the time to  educate people on the importance of planning.

Zanie Yosi explains, people between the ages of 14 & 50 are encouraged to seek family planning services. Zani says family planning methods  are not only for married couples. The benefits include the  prevention  of  unwanted pregnancies and  complications  that lead to  death and abortions.

With the high rate of teenage pregnancies, the Family Health Association is encouraging people to learn about the family planning methods.

The services  that are available include pills, fertility awareness, condoms, Implants and IVD.
