To implement the KP thrusts and interventions, the DOH will adopt the following general strategies: 1. Focus and engage vulnerable families, starting with provinces where most are found; 2. Leverage LGU participation and performance through province-wide agreements; and 4. Harness private sector participation Focusing interventions on vulnerable families will be done by prioritizing provinces where the largest number of families who are poor as identified by NHTS-PR and have unmet needs are located. Twelve 12 areas in the country have been prioritized for having the most number of families who are poor and have unmet needs. Together, these areas account for 33 percent of NHTS-PR families and about 40 percent of unmet needs for public health services in the country.

Focus and engage vulnerable families, starting with provinces where most are found; 2. Leverage LGU participation and performance through province-wide agreements; and 4.
Harness private sector participation Focusing interventions on vulnerable families will be done by prioritizing provinces where the largest number of families who are poor as identified by NHTS-PR and have unmet needs are located. Twelve 12 areas in the country have been prioritized for having the most number of families who are poor and have unmet needs.
Together, these areas account for 33 percent of NHTS-PR families and about 40 percent of unmet needs for public health services in the country. The concentration of the target population in these areas provides the opportunity for implementing public health interventions at a scale that can significantly impact on national indicators. The main intervention in reaching the families especially the CCT is through the organization and mobilization of CHTs.
The DOH recognizes that LGUs have the primary mandate to finance and regulate local health systems, including the provision of the right information to families and health providers. The province-wide agreements will also serve as basis for the development of CHD support plans for LGUs that will be consolidated into the annual budget proposal of DOH. Harnessing the private sector participation in the upgrading of public clinics and hospitals will be undertaken by upgrading DOH retained hospitals into modern medical centers through public private partnerships PPP.
DOH will also explore other PPP arrangements, including the outsourcing of some hospital management services. In addition, hospital governing boards will also be organized to increase accountability of DOH hospitals to the communities they serve. Furthermore, the private sector with the stewardship of the public sector will be mobilized to support the public health programs that will facilitate the achievement of the MDGs. To facilitate the implementation of these strategies, the DOH adopted a functional management structure that assigned accountability to CHDs and operations cluster heads in achieving health outcome targets.
Supporting the operations cluster will be the technical clusters on health financing and policy and support to service delivery as well as the administrative and financial management clusters among others. The success of the KP shall be measured by the progress made in preventing premature deaths, reducing maternal and newborn deaths, controlling both communicable and non-communicable diseases, improvements in access to quality health facilities and services and increasing NHIP coverage, benefit utilization and support value, prioritizing the poor and the marginalized such as the Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Area GIDA population, indigenous population, older persons, differently-abled persons, internally- displaced population, and people in conflict-affected areas.
These performance measures are the results of effective interaction between families and health care providers both public and private in local health systems. Source: National Objectives for Health Chapter 2.
