According to ADB website, as part of the comprehensive support of the ADB for the Government of the Philippines in responding to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), HEAL will assist the Department of Health (DOH) in scaling up public health capacity to manage the pandemic. It will provide medical equipment and supplies and upgrade laboratories and isolation facilities at 17 DOH hospitals throughout the country. This will strengthen COVID-19-related testing, surveillance, infection prevention and control, and treatment. It will also help to improve the preparedness and resilience of the health system to handle future public health threats.

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.
