FHI 360 implements the Better Health Programme (BHP) in the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam and leads the monitoring, research, evaluation and learning component for the entire eight-country program (which includes these three countries plus Brazil, Malaysia, Mexico, Myanmar and South Africa). To address the rising health and economic burden of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in the Asia-Pacific region, BHP aims to reduce NCD burden and improve access to safe, quality care using equitable, ethical and sustainable approaches.
With funding from the U.K. Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office Prosperity Fund and in partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers, FHI 360 works closely with government counterparts, in-country experts, stakeholders and international experts across five integrated pillars:
- Strategies to counter NCDs
- Digital health initiatives
- Education and training
- Provider performance improvement
- Life sciences initiatives
In the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, FHI 360 provides strategic technical assistance focused on developing and implementing national strategies. These include policy dialogues, experience-sharing at national and international forums, technical document and standards development, and piloting and testing operations for national scale-up.
