Plan International Philippines’ programme has the following key strategies:
- Improve the competence of community care-givers regarding child care and health issues
- Strengthen school and community–based health systems
- Develop effective models for community-managed pharmacies, health savings groups, and community-led total sanitation (CLTS)
- Establish inter-local health cooperation and management system
- Improve access to potable water supply and sanitation
Across different Programme Units, various interventions on maternal, new-born and child health, water and sanitation campaigns continue to be implemented in partner communities to keep male and female children well-nourished and protected from diarrhoea, pneumonia, and other preventable diseases.
Our results within this important development area include:
Outcome 1: Government units at various levels are allocating adequate resources for health care, especially for the poorest households.
Outcome 2: Community health centres and rural health units are providing quality primary health care services, especially in relation to maternal, child and adolescent health.
Outcome 3: Schools are promoting health and nutrition as well as hygiene and sanitation.
Outcome 4: Fathers, mothers, and other caregivers are practicing responsible parenting.
