Philippine Progress Report on MDG 4: Reduce child mortality

Philippines has been doing well in reducing under-five mortality and infant mortality rates but needs to address neonatal mortality rates.

Infant and Under-five Mortality (2003 2011)

MDG Targets for 2015 (26.7 and 19) are ACHIEVABLE

1988-1998: 40% 1998-2008: 20% Neonatal mortality hasnt improved

DHS 88, 93, 98, 03, 08

Majority of newborns die due to stressful events or conditions during labor, delivery and the immediate postpartum period

3 out of 4 newborn deaths occur in the 1st week of life

Philippine Progress Report on MDG 5:

Improve maternal health

On reducing the MMR by 75 percent:

Remains a difficult challenge

On universal access to RH services: CPR-modern method= 34 percent (married women) and 22 percent (all women of reproductive age)

At current rate of decline, the Philippines is unlikely to reach the MDG target for MMR by 2015

What is MNCHN?

Maternal, Newborn, Child Health and Nutrition

Guiding Principles
Every pregnancy is wanted, planned and supported Every pregnancy is adequately managed throughout its course

Every delivery is facility-based and managed by skilled health professionals


Every mother and newborn pair secures proper post-partum care

MNCHN Strategic Plan 2013-2017

Every woman, child and their families utilize quality health services in a continuum of care

To lead, harmonize, and converge all efforts in delivery of maternal, newborn, child health and nutrition (MNCHN) package of services to ensure equitable, accessible, efficient health services to communities through dynamic partnership and shared advocacy, responsibility and accountability.

Rapidly reduce maternal and neonatal mortality through local implementation of a MNCHN strategy

Implementing the MNCHN Strategic Plan supports the attainment of DOHs Universal Health Care strategy as it aims

To reduce maternal mortality ratio from 162/100,000 live births to 52/100,000 live births and To reduce neonatal mortality rate from 17/1,000 live births to 14/1,000 live births

Specific Objectives

Increase contraceptive prevalence rate from 50.7% to 63% Reduce unmet need from 19% to 16% Increase percentage of pregnant women having at least four antenatal care visits from 78% to 80% Increase facility-based delivery from 55% to 85% Increase skilled birth attendance from 72% to 85% Increase percentage of newborns initiated to breastfeeding within one hour of life from 53.5% to 90% Increase percentage of exclusively breastfed infants for the first 6 months of life from 48% to 70% Increase percentage of fully immunized children from 82% to 95%

Strategy 1

Scale up, promote, implement, evaluate the delivery of comprehensive MNCHN service package in a continuum of care through strengthened local health systems. National government will provide support to local health systems that is guided by the six pillars of UHC strategy.

Strategy 2

Enhance capacity to provide targeted support to province-wide or city-wide health systems and disadvantaged population groups where access to MNCHN services is limited and where mortalities are likely to occur or are most severe

Strategy 3

Engage the, advocate to, and mobilize resources of all province-wide or city-wide health systems to adopt, implement and steward the integrated MNCHN strategy

Strategy to reduce maternal and child undernutrition ( A UNICEF EAPRO Strategy Paper)

Target adolescent girls, pre-pregnant women and pregnant women with interventions to improve maternal and child nutrition Increase the nutrition content of preventative and curative health care and improve the access of adolescent girls, pre-pregnant women and pregnant women to theses and contraceptive services Develop community-based processes aimed at empowering adolescent girls, pre-pregnant women and pregnant women (nutritional and socio-economic status) Increase coverage of effective child nutrition interventions

Major Causes of Low Birth Weight

Vary by region but usually include: Low maternal energy intake (food quantity) Poor diversity of diet (food quality in terms of vitamins &

Excessive energy expenditure from heavy physical activity Infections (sexually transmitted, malaria) Becoming pregnant at young age (before mothers
own growth is completed)

Substance abuse Exposure of mother to secondary smoke inhalation and indoor air pollution Domestic violence


Maternal nutrition

Plays a vital underlying role in maternal, neonatal, and child mortality. Because its role is not as obvious and is often not the immediate cause of death, its importance is often overlooked Maternal undernutrition initiates an intergenerational cycle of malnutrition, poor health outcomes, and poverty. This is the place to break the cycle

Nutrition is everyones responsibility and like other cross-cutting issues, too often it falls through the cracks.
Women are not dying because of diseases we cannot treatthey are dying because societies have yet to make the decision that their lives are worth saving -- Mahmoud Fathalla
