To support gender integration efforts in the Philippines, the Gender, Policy, and Measurement (GPM) program of the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) conducted a gender assessment of health-related laws, policies, and programs, in collaboration with USAID/Philippines staff and stakeholders. The analysis was designed to help the health office of USAID/Philippines determine how the government, donors, and nongovernmental organizations are responding to gender inequality, norms, and barriers. This report presents the gender assessment’s results. It analyzes the country’s resources and capacity to develop and implement gender-responsive health programs, suggesting entry points and opportunities for investing in gender equality for improved family planning and maternal, neonatal, and child health outcomes. The report also recommends ways to incorporate gender-integrated interventions in the country’s health portfolio: for example, adapting or developing tools and training materials and adopting strategies for monitoring and evaluating gender-integrated programs.
