Cash Voucher Assistance for Pregnant Women
Cash assistance and maternity packs for select pregnant women who underwent complete prenatal check-ups and delivered in a health facility.
The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected everyone negatively including pregnant women. It has been a struggle for moms-to-be in gaining access to proper maternal health care. Transportation problems, the risks of getting infected, along with an increase in health care cost, and income loss are among the issues they face during this devastating time.
To assist some of the pregnant women, the Philippine Society for Responsible Parenthood, Inc. (PSRP) launched the Cash Voucher Assistance Program for Pregnant Women in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund Philippines (UNFPA), DOH Center for Health Development CALABARZON, Batangas Provincial Health Office, Rizal Provincial Health Office, Manila City Health Office, and Quezon City Health Office.
Promoting prenatal check-ups and facility-based deliveries to improve maternal and child health care, the Cash Voucher Assistance Program gives cash assistance and maternity packs to select impoverished women residing in Batangas, Manila, Quezon City, and Rizal. The program launched this June and will run until December 2020, to assist 2,800 pregnant women who are expecting to give birth during the program period.
PSRP representatives are set to contact the list of pregnant women provided by the local health offices from the mentioned areas. The mothers simply need to present a discharge summary from the health facility where they gave birth to their baby, and a valid ID to receive cash assistance vouchers and maternity packs.
With this initiative, women are given the assistance they need to have a safe pregnancy, safe delivery, and safe postpartum recovery.
