PN 2016-04: Assessment of the COMPACK Program

This study is an assessment of the Complete Treatment Pack (COMPACK) Program that aims to ensure that the poorest of the poor are assured access to medicines for common diseases in the country. The main objective of the program is to realize decreased health-care cost. One positive effect of the program is the shortening of delivery time of medicines. The program, however, is affected by mismatch in the type and timing of the medicines supplied to local government units (LGUs), and poor consultation with the LGUs on their medicine requirements resulting in the oversupply of some medicines and undersupply of other items. To improve the implementation of the program, this Policy Note recommends to ensure the integration of the COMPACK Program with LGU development plans and to continue addressing the unstable and incorrect supply of medicines.
