Abstract PIP: Population policy of the Philippine government is discussed in its evolution, current status under the 1973 constitution, and future development. Despite the low income, strong family ties, 7000 islands, 87 languages and 82\% Catholic population, the Philippines has an official population policy which evolved into the Population Commission in 1969. The commission recommended setting goals, furthering education, removing legal drawbacks, reducing mortality, regulating internal migration and coordinating public and private international funding organizations. The private organizations, international funding,mass media, academic influence, and possibly the Catholic hierarchy influenced events positively. During martial law (September 1972 to January 1973) the government took on responsibility to require licensed professionals to learn family planning, and to change tax exemptions. The constitution now states that the State must achieve a population level conducive to national welfare. The present policy considers population planning an economic priority, has placed 5 cabinet members on the board of the Population Commission (no representatives from private organizations, which recruit 70\% of acceptors), and has an extremely optimistic 5 year plan. No public protest had emerged, and because rhythm is included, it is hoped that rhythm users well eventually change to effective methods. Foreign assistance will be needed, and is channeled through the National Economic and Development Authority. Future needs include paramidics, nonclinical methods, rural access, incentives for program workers, and more effective propaganda.
