The University of the Philippines Manila Social Innovation in Health Hub and the Philippines’ Department of Health are partnering with the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) hosted at the World Health Organization (WHO) and co-sponsored by UNDP, UNICEF, the World Bank, and WHO.

THE CHALLENGE FACING
THE PHILIPPINES

Significant gains have been achieved in improving the health of the Filipinos over the last 50 years. However, challenges remain for delivering quality health services, especially in geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas. The economic burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases continues to increase, exacerbated by high out of pocket payments. Emerging and re-emerging infectious tropical diseases pose a threat to public health and individual patient safety, with lack of adequate funding and innovation for prevention and treatment.
