As stated by the AIIB, the proposed policy-based loan, co-financed with Asian Development Bank under the COVID-19 Crisis Recovery Facility will provide financing for the efforts of the Government of the Philippines to strengthen public health systems in the post-pandemic era and enhance the country's preparedness and response to the unanticipated health crises.
The Program aims to support the Universal Health Care (UHC) Act implementation through a series of reforms that will broaden the coverage of healthcare services in population and increase financing for UHC to strengthen the preparation, prevention, and response to the next pandemic. It will also help expand primary healthcare facilities across the country and enhance the quantity and quality of second and third-tier health institutions and the capacity of healthcare workers. Furthermore, the Program will support the nationwide implementation of interoperability of health information systems, monitoring of UHC outputs and outcomes, and performance incentives for UHC-related activities of the local government units.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AIIB
The AIIB has established the Accountability Mechanism for Project-Affected People (PPM). The PPM provides Òan opportunity for an independent and impartial review of submissions from Project-affected people who believe they have been or are likely to be adversely affected by AIIBÕs failure to implement the ESP in situations when their concerns cannot be addressed satisfactorily through Project level GRMs or AIIB Management processes.Ó Two or more project-affected people can file a complaint. Under the current AIIB policy, when the bank co-finances a project with another development bank, it may apply the other bank's standards. You can refer to the Project Summary Information document to find out which standards apply. You can learn more about the PPM and how to file a complaint at: https://www.aiib.org/en/about-aiib/who-we-are/project-affected-peoples-mechanism/how-we-assist-you/index.html
