The German Health Practice Collection recently published a feature on the Essential Health Care Program in the Philippines. The feature included a description on the program framework and developments as well as lessons learned so far. The feature also included a laudation from experts that reviewed the program, describing the EHCP initiatives as "worthy examples of current practice in school health."
The German Health Practice Collection describes programmes supported by German Development Cooperation assessed as 'promising or 'good practice' by experts from German development organizations and two international peer reviewers with expertise in the particular field. Each report tells the story, in plain language, of a particular programme and is published in a short (four pages) and full version at our web site: www.german-practice-colletion.org.
