There are already 503 barangays in Antique that have Responsible Parenting Movement (PRM) Teams and that the head of the Provincial Population Office, Primo Ogatis, have already conducted 525 RPM-NFP classes and had trained 7,595 couples. PRM aims to help couples and parents exercise responsible parenting and to reduce infant, child and maternal mortality.

In addition, Ogatis bared that his office also reached out to the young Antiquenos and conducted orientation on Adolescent Health and Youth Development Program (AHYDP). Through this, they are able to help the youth to exercise responsible sexuality, thereby reducing the incidence of teenage pregnancies, early marriages, sexually transmitted infections and other psycho-social concerns.
