PN 2016-28: How Do Private Schools Fare in the Provision of Health-Care Services to Students?

This Policy Note analyzes the current state of student health services provision in Philippine private schools and reviews the policy context surrounding them. Among its major findings is that the memorandum orders released by the Commission on Higher Education and Department of Education regarding student health services do not prescribe specific numbers of personnel and clinic size for schools to be permitted to operate. It then becomes the decision of each individual school how much to provide. However, it finds that this lack of detail does not seem to have affected the level of health-care provision in private schools. Nonetheless, it calls for the review and, if necessary, formulation of an updated version of the standards more appropriate to the current situation of private schools as they were set more than 30 years ago.
