DRN 1998 Vol. XVI No. 5-c: Inter-LGU Cooperation not Renationalization, is the Answer to Health Service Delivery

The article discusses the importance of institutionalizing inter-LGU cooperation toward a better system of health care delivery in the country. Instead of going back to the old system of nationalization in the face of certain problems being encountered by the devoted health care system, the article shows how inter-LGU cooperation is the answer by citing three cases of cost-sharing health insurance schemes that provide accessible and affordable services for the people in their respective communities. This article offers a preliminary glimpse into the country's health system since more articles would be featured in the forthcoming November-December 1998 issue of the DRN.
