In pursuit of these objectives, KoPHWA runs a wide range of information, education, and communication (IEC) programs to raise the public awareness of population issues, and is active in young people’s education and participation. Besides, KoPHWA delivers the MCH and Family Health services particularly to women and children through 13 branch clinics; it also provides mobile OB-GYN services to increase the access to medical and health information and services of marginalized groups. In addition, the KoPHWA’s works of developing and distributing high-quality materials have consistently contributed to creating the family-friendly childbirth and childcare environment as well as promoting good sexual and reproductive health practice.
