Valorizing Research and Evidence for Social Inclusion in the Philippines: A Situational Analysis of Selected Programs Addressing the Shortage of Primary Care Workforce within the Primary Healthcare Approach

In August 2017, the University of the Philippines Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS) embarked on a partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Office in Jakarta, Indonesia, for a six-month research project on Valorizing Research and Evidence for Social Inclusion. As one of the members of UNESCO’s multi-country initiative, the Philippine Project aimed to address the pressing policy agenda towards attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) identified in the UN 2030 Agenda. The project specifically used the primary health care (PHC) approach and looked into the shortage of primary care workforce in the country.
