We are searching for local solutions improving healthcare delivery in 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.
