The Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines' (ULAP) co-convened "162 to 52 Health Coalition on Accelerating Collective Action to Achieve Maternal and Child Health" is cited by Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health (ASMPH) Dean, and former DOH Secretary, Manuel Dayrit in his column in SciDev. The Coalition work is referred to as a sign that collective action isbeing done to address health issues in the local level.
Dean Dayrit also represents ASMPH as one of the Lead Conveners of the Coalition. Other lead conveners are DOH, ULAP, Zuellig Family Foundation, PhilHealth, Access Health Philippines, Microsoft Philippines, and the Commission on Population.
The Coalition seeks to develop joint programs among its member organizations from the private groups, civil society organizations, and government agencies to increase interventions in areas in need. Moreover, through ULAP's membership in key policy platforms with national government agencies on health (i.e., DOH, PhilHealth), the Coalition provides policy inputs through conversations and technical reports.
