Policy and Access to Essential Medicines

Adequate Financing

WHO, working with PhilHealth, is designing a benefit which would cover the cost of selected medicines, when prescribed and bought outside of the hospital (outpatient). The PhilHealth Board supported the development of Primary Care Benefit 2 (PCB2) for antihypertensive and diabetes medicines. WHO is continuing its support to PhilHealth, by looking at the implementation details of the PCB2.
