In December 2012 the Philippines’ Act Providing for a National Policy on Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health (RH Law) was promulgated. In this briefing, Amnesty International revisits concerns raised by United Nations treaty monitoring bodies on reproductive health in the Philippines. It outlines the relationship between international human rights law and the RH Law, and recommends a set of principles to the Secretary of Health and the technical working group as a basis for finalizing the policy which outlines the implementing rules and regulations of the RH Law.
