DRN 2013 Vol. XXXI No. 4: Economic Growth Must Translate to Better Health Outcomes

This issue of the DRN, which is the final issue of the revamped DRN for 2013, chronicles the proceedings of the nationwide celebration of the 11th Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) last September. With the theme "Making health more inclusive in a growing economy", the DPRM events highlighted policies aimed at making health more inclusive. An important recommendation is for the Philippines to hike health expenditures to the minimum 5 percent recommended by the World Health Organization from the current 3 to 3.5 percent.

Other DPRM-related articles feature effective tools for evaluation of the impact of antipoverty and development projects, best practices in health financing and innovations, the government`s Universal Health Care program, inequalities in maternal health and child care, and public-private partnership arrangements in health.
