Audit of USAID/Philippines’ Sustainable Health Improvements Through Empowerment and Local Development Projec

Country: Philippines
Fiscal Year: 2009
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: Yes
Description:

Nearly 86 percent of the poorest Filipino households are living in a region in the southern Philippines known as the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao. The overall poverty of this region is reflected in the poor health of the people, primarily caused by limited resources for protecting, sustaining, and improving health. As a result, health outcomes in this region, particularly for women and children, have stayed low because of poor access to and low use of basic health services. On September 30, 2006, USAID awarded Helen Keller International a $15 million cooperative agreement to implement a health program that incorporated the Sustainable Health Improvements through Empowerment and Local Development (SHIELD) project on viable family planning and health related activities. This program will help the regional government, local governments, and communities in the region to improve their health status in a sustainable way.

This audit will (1) determine whether USAID/Philippines’ SHIELD project achieved intended results and (2) assess the project’s impact.
