Health Promotion and Communication Project in the Philippines Final Report

Abstract:

Many Filipinos, particularly those who are poor, less educated, and living in rural and remote communities, including the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), have limited access to health services and information. Increasing demand for services and changing health-seeking behavior would improve health outcomes. Health-seeking behavior could be improved by providing correct information to 1) address fears and misperceptions and 2) showcase the benefits of timely and continuous services to prevent deaths and reduce suffering.
