MISP trainers Dr. Alvin Silva and Ms. Madeline Magallon of FriendlyCare Foundation, led the training sessions and workshops on MISP at Kuting Reef in Macrohon, Southern Leyte.

Some 25 emergency response workers and humanitarian crisis responders participated in this batch of MISP training and workshops. They come from Rural Health Units, Social Welfare and Municipal Disaster Risk and Reduction offices of Kanaga (Ormoc), Tolosa and Palo (Leyte). A Municipal Councilor from Tolosa also attended the training along with representatives from PNP, DILG and DOH.

Dr. Silva also facilitated the break-out sessions on Syndromic Approach on Sexually-Transmitted infection and MISP Logistics, while Ms. Magallon led the break-out workshops on Family Planning and Reproductive Health.

The MISP Training of Trainers is a coordinated set of priority activities of UNFPA designed to: prevent and manage the consequences of sexual violence; help prevent maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality rate; plan for comprehensive RH services; and help reduce HIV transmission. When implemented in a crisis, MISP saves lives and helps prevent illnesses, especially among women and girls.
