Dear Angelica Anne Estabaya,

Greetings!

Thank you for your request dated May 11, 2022 10:51:45 AM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your request

You asked for Number of people with and without health insurance.

Response to your request

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance this Office does not have the information you have requested. 

For the data on the Number of people (Filipino) with and without health insurance and Areas in the Philippines with lack of healthcare access, we request that you coordinate with Philhealth and Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)

Please be informed that we do not have data on the number of migrations of health workers. We suggest that you coordinate with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) on this matter. We only have data on the Human Resources for Health (HRH) on the number of health workers at the link: https://bit.ly/doh-hrhstat 

Finally, we do not gather data on rate of community engagement/participation of Filipinos in health related activities. All data gathered are in the FHSIS and Philippine Health Statistics annual reports in the DOH website at https://doh.gov.ph/publications/serials 

Thank you
