By Nicai de Guzman, Reporter, @NicaiDeGuzman

The timing was perfect for the Philippines to host this year’s Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights (APCRSHR), as it passed into law its controversial Reproductive Health bill just the previous year.
#7APCRSHR was host to over 2,000 delegates from all over the Asia Pacific region. In the opening ceremony, Philippines Department of Health (Twitter: @DOHgovph) Secretary Enrique Ona reaffirmed the administration’s support for RA 10354 or the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Law, despite continued protests from religious groups.
