According to bank's website, "the program loan will support the Philippines implement the law and achieve universal health coverage". "The Government of the Philippines enacted the Universal Health Care (UHC) Act on 20 February 2019 to ensure equitable access to quality health services for all Filipinos with financial protection. The UHC Act envisioned the implementation of a series of reforms over at least 6 years and the proposed program will support the implementation of these health financing, service delivery, and performance monitoring reforms needed to achieve UHC. It is consistent with the Philippine Development Plan, 2017-2022; the country partnership strategy, 2018-2023 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB); and ADB's Strategy 2030. The programmatic approach will provide long-term support to improve the sequencing and implementation of UHC policy reforms and harmonize national and local-level reforms".

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
