Technical Assistance on Developing Omnibus Policy for the Department of Health

The Department of Health (DOH) formulates policies, sets standards, and defines rules and regulations for every health program and initiative to be implemented in the country. With this, DOH has taken the initiative to review all existing policies and filter the active issuances, not only for recordkeeping, but also for monitoring and evaluation of the health programs. In addition, the policies are also being reviewed for their relevance to the current health issues in the country and to the seven priority areas identified as follows (1) Immunization, (2) Tobacco and Smoking, (3) Healthy Lifestyle, (4) Mental Health, (5) Drug Abuse, (6) Reproductive Health, and (7) Family Planning. 
 
This research will conduct a policy review of all existing issuances under the seven priority areas as mentioned above, and shall focus on policy / content development, system / process management, needs analysis for the development of an electronic platform for the omnibus policies, and provide guidance to parallel efforts in the crafting of omnibus policies.

Administrative Orders are commonly sponsored or nominated by concerned program managers, and cleared through the Health Policy Development and Planning Bureau (HPDPB) Policy Division. A typical AO is thematic in nature and anchored in a program. Currently, the archiving of around 2,000 AOs accumulated throughout the years is fairly about maintaining a list, with minimal policy content management. The current policy development cycle has no systematic guidance and process that will minimize inconsistencies and gaps, either within a thematic/program area or how that theme/program interacts with existing cross-cutting operational policies. The shallow institutional memory within programs also contributes to these gaps and inconsistencies.

Omnibus policy to address the current health issues in the country and to the seven priority areas identified as follows (1) Immunization, (2) Tobacco and Smoking, (3) Healthy Lifestyle, (4) Mental Health, (5) Drug Abuse, (6) Reproductive Health, and (7) Family Planning.
