LuzonHealth (Integrated Maternal, Neonatal, Child Health and Nutrition/Family Planning Regional Project in Luzon) is a five-year United States Agency for International Development health service strengthening project implemented by RTI International. The project supports the Department of Health (DOH)-led scale-up of high-impact services and client-centered information to reduce maternal and infant deaths, improve child health and nutrition and meet the demand for modern family planning services.

LuzonHealth works with the DOH, Centers for Health Development, provincial, municipal and city health offices, local government units, other USAID-supported projects and major stakeholders. The project responds to the government’s Universal Health Care or Kalusugan Pankalahatan (UHC/KP) program which is defined as “the provision to every Filipino of the highest possible quality of health care that is accessible, efficient, equitably distributed, adequately funded, fairly financed, and appropriately used by an informed and empowered public”.

STRATEGIES
LuzonHealth integrates and scales-up best practices and innovations to increase utilization of Maternal Neonatal Child Health and Nutrition and Family Planning services at the LGU level. The project uses a combination of strategies that include strengthening demand, improving supply, and improving health policies and systems through evidence-based interventions.
