Philippines

Active Projects

 

Overview

URC has three active projects in the Philippines.

The USAID BARMMHealth project, implemented by URC, works with the Ministry of Health - Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (MOH-BARMM)​ towards improving access of the Bangsamoro families and communities to quality family planning (FP), adolescent and youth reproductive health (AYRH) information and services. The goal is to achieve a self-reliant health system by building commitment and strengthening the capacity of the government, civil society, and communities to develop, implement, and finance solutions to improve health in BARMM.

The TB Platforms project aims to strengthen TB interventions at the regional, local government, and community levels to increase TB case detection and treatment success rates.

Drug use and addiction in the Philippines is a national concern that impacts the security, health, and social and economic well-being of the Philippine people. The RenewHealth project seeks to address the problem by expanding access to evidence-based and culturally-appropriate community-based drug treatment and recovery (CBDR) services.
