MANILA, Philippines- Muling itinalaga si Dr. Juan Antonio Perez bilang undersecretary for population and development integration, ayon sa Commission on Population and Development (Popcom) nitong Linggo.

Nanumpa si Perez sa University of the Philippines – Population Institute nitong Hulyo 1 sa harap ni Popcom new board chairperson Dr. Grace Cruz.

Mananatili rin si Perez bilang executive director ng ahensya, ayon sa Popcom.

Base kay Perez, ipe-presenta ng ahensya ang bagong population policy sa administrasyon ni President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

“In these policies, stable population growth rate (1.0pct), single digit population poverty rate and zero hunger at household levels will be the center of the [P]hilippine population and development program for the years 2022-2028,” pahayag niya.

“Key policies on family planning for all and a living wage policy which addresses regional poverty thresholds will be pursued by Popcom from the start,” dagdag niya.

Gayundin, inihayag ni Perez na ang patuloy niyang serbisyo sa Popcom ay magiging daan para sa “uninterrupted implementation of the country’s reproductive health and family planning programs, upholding sexual and reproductive health and rights of couples, individuals and adolescents, as well as advocating for the Filipino families’ improved quality of lives through decent living wages across the archipelago, among others.” RNT/SA
