The Philippine NGO Council on Population, Health and Welfare (PNGOC) is a registered nonprofit organization with a tax exempt donee status.

PNGOC was founded on June 24, 1987 by 17 Philippine NGOs with the objective of becoming the voice of population and development advocates within the NGO, government and funding circles and to respond to the growing demand for NGO services in population, reproductive and sexual health and development.

PNGOC has since responded to the growing demand for NGO services in population, reproductive and sexual health and development. It has become a leading advocate of the reproductive health care framework as espoused by the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action.

Featured Projects


Quezon City Health Department (QCHD) takes a big step forward to counter the spread of HIV and STI infection among the MSM and generally its male population. It has been reported that the city is among the cities of the whole country that contributes the highest number of new HIV infections reported monthly to the National AIDS Registry through the National Epidemiology Center of the Department of Health (DOH-NEC).

ISEAN-Hivos Program

In 2010, to address the increased vulnerability of MSMs as well as Transgenders to HIV transmission especially in the context of South East Asia, the Insular Southeast Asian Network on MSM, TG, and HIV or ISEAN and the Humanist Institute for Co-operation with Developing Countries or Hivos, jointly submitted a regional proposal to the Global Fund Round 10. The Grant Agreement was approved and the contract for the grant was signed on 6 October 2011. This grant, has since then been called, the ISEAN Hivos Program.

2011 Campaign for the RH Bill

PNGOC exerted its effort to campaign all over the country for support for the enactment of the RH Law.  Multi-sectoral policy forums, regional media conferences and press conferences were organized and facilitated.  These activities provided venues for informing the public and stakeholders on the salient features of the bill, issues surrounding the delay in its approval as well as clarify misconceptions about certain provisions that opposition groups used to mislead the public.
