SDRC TR 2008-02: A Family Health Book Initiative: An Approach to Integrating Maternal, Newborn and Child Health in the Philippines

The Family Health Book (FHB) Initiative aimed to achieve sustainable family health by reducing a) maternal, neonatal and child mortality and morbidity; and b) the unmet need for family planning. Specifically, the initiative intended to 1) improve access, especially by the poor and disadvantaged, to quality essential MNCH services, including family planning; 2) secure adequate financing of the FHB and MNCH services; 3) strengthen national and local public and private stakeholder commitment to MNCH; 4) increase demand for essential services and client participation in the Initiative; and 5) monitor the progress toward the achievement of improved MNCH outcomes. The FHB was to be designed into a recognizable package that will engage families to participate in the initiative through a user-attractive “health passport”. The basic FHB package aimed to include family planning services and evidence-based interventions during pregnancy, delivery, and after, including neonatal care and child health services.
