In 2012, ACCESS Health Philippines partnered with representatives from the private sector, government, and civil society to form the 162to52 Coalition for Maternal Health. The 162to52 Coalition seeks to improve maternal and newborn health in the Philippines. The Coalition is an alliance that includes representatives from the private sector, government, and civil society. The Coalition supports the development of public private partnerships that strengthen local health systems with poor maternal and child health indicators.
Recent Coalition activities include the PhilHealth National Maternal and Child Health National Summit. The 162to52 Coalition helped to organize a meeting to discuss how to improve maternal and child health. The topics included how to improve use of the PhilHealth Maternity Care Package and Newborn Care Package.
The lead conveners of the 162to52 Coalition are the Ayala Foundation Technology Business Incubator, the Department of Health – Bureau of Local Health and Development, Dr. Jaime Galvez-Tan, the League of Provinces of the Philippines, Philippine Business for Social Progress, the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth), the Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines, Sanofi-Aventis, and the Zuellig Family Foundation.
