Philippines Private Health Sector Assessment

Health outcomes are improving in the Philippines, but challenges remain in family planning. Fertility is high and the country faces a teen pregnancy problem, despite significant investments by donors and the Filipino government. The private sector is active at every level of care and could help address these issues, especially through innovative approaches that capitalize on developments in the country’s health care system. The Sustaining Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) Plus project collaborated with USAID/Philippines to conduct an assessment to identify opportunities for the private sector to increase access to and use of modern family planning methods. This brief highlights methods, key findings, and recommendations from the full assessment report.
