Philippines get $1.43m to improve healthcare delivery:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Philippine Health Sector Reform Agenda will receive a technical assistance (TA) grant of US$1.43m to improve health service delivery. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) will provide US$1m with the government putting in US$43,000. Infectious diseases have not yet fallen to acceptable levels, and lifestyle related conditions such as cardiovascular disease, malignancies and pulmonary disorder are becoming the most common causes of mortality and morbidity. "The challenges faced by the health sector such as devolution, public sector programmes not prioritising the needs of the population and the current budget crisis means a potentially slower improvement in the health status of Filipinos," said ADB senior economist Karima Saleh.
