What We Do
HP+ is supporting the Government of Philippines Department of Health’s efforts to strengthen health systems by conducting its first-ever National Health Expenditure Survey, a large-scale panel survey of households with a linked medical provider component. This effort will contribute to the evidence base for increased, sustainable, predictable, and adequate financing for key health programs and to support the government in improving social health protection policy implementation. Survey results will provide long-term information on the impact of various health sector reforms in the Philippines and allow monitoring of indicators important to the achievement of universal health coverage. Specifically, HP+ will:
- Provide technical support to complete the development of the survey design and facilitate data collection for a pilot implementation of the National Health Expenditure Survey;
- Provide additional technical support to the Department of Health on the implementation of the full baseline National Health Expenditure Survey, including but not limited to the in-country ethical clearance process, protocol and questionnaire revisions, and management of a third-party contract for data collection and processing;
- Design appropriate survey data analysis techniques,
- Finalize the final National Health Expenditure Survey reports and conduct dissemination and policy engagement.
