The first round of the National Health Expenditure Survey (NHES)—spearheaded by the Philippine Department of Health-Health Policy Development and Planning Bureau and supported by HP+—fills an evidence gap in health service utilization and associated expenditure data. This national survey is the first uniquely designed survey to collect data from both households and medical providers on the disease and health expenditure burden of households, sources of care, and care financing. As designed, the NHES provides complementary data for the country’s National Health Accounts and captures information not provided in the Philippines National Demographic and Health Survey or other household surveys. The NHES is intended to be conducted on a regular basis to inform health sector decision making, including implementation of the 2019 Universal Health Care Act and monitoring and evaluation of health sector reforms. In addition to the analytical report (and the executive summary available in Tagalog), two policy briefs provide findings from further analysis of NHES data on out-of-pocket healthcare spending and catastrophic health expenditure to inform reforms to health policies and programs.
