Lovely Amin recently completed a SQUEAC assessment in the Philippines, on the Mindanao Island. Mindanao is the second largest of the Philippines’ 7107 islands and is located in the south of the country. Many people in Central Mindanao do not have access to adequate healthcare, water and sanitation facilities, and nutritious food causing widespread malnutrition.
A variety of Boosters and Barriers were identified which all have an impact on programme coverage, though to a varying degree.
The report is in the stages of finalisation, and will be available in the coming weeks.
