He said the FPOP received $625,095, "or almost P27.5 million," in 2011 from the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).

With this in mind, the Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (YC), in partnership "with the Family Planning Organisation of the Philippines (FPOP), conducted a national level pilot training on young people's sexual and reproductive rights (SRR) and poverty reduction strategies in the Philippines.
Post-training, YC and FPOP are currently working on the assessment and representation of SRHR issues in the legislative and policy arena, particularly for the MTDPP II.
