City gov’t continues to offer free NSV to Dabawenyos

THE City Government of Davao, through the City Health Office’s (CHO) Population Division, continues to offer free No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) to Dabawenyos.

For June, the free NSV is scheduled on June 28 at the Buhangin Vasectomy Center.

The NSV is a family planning method with a procedure that lasts for only 10–15 minutes. The procedure does not require incisions and stitches and has a recovery period of one to two days. The NSV also only requires minimal aftercare.

The CHO’s Population Division conducts free NSV services every last Friday of the month. The NSV is safe and poses lower risks compared to bilateral tubal ligation (BTL). It is also 99.85 percent effective.

Other than the NSV, the Population Division also offers other free family planning methods including BTL.

Dabawenyos who wish to avail of the free family planning services offered by the City Population Division may visit their office located in Camus St., or email them at [email protected]. Dabawenyo males interested in availing of the free NSV service of the City Population Division may visit the City Population Division’s Facebook page or message them through 09952024680.
