The (IDNP) is an awareness day that was first observed back in 2002 at California, USA and Melbourne, Australia. It is then celebrated yearly, on October 5, so as to help oppose prostitution.

In Cagayan de Oro City, bars, nightclubs and such establishments are encouraged to stop their operations and local sex workers are advised to sacrifice their earnings on that specific day. A proclamation order on this has been issued by the city hall during the time of mayor Tinnex Jaraula.
