ThinkWell is a health systems development organization focused on helping countries achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC). Using an approach that is rooted in analytics, ThinkWell has supported health financing and governance reforms in over 30 countries world-wide. ThinkWell thrives on reconceiving possibilities to help countries reach UHC. We are a grounded, field-driven organization, with staff based out of six countries. Our team is composed of experts in health economics, policy, and research, who are all working with countries to support their efforts to move towards UHC.
In the Philippines, ThinkWell has begun the implementation of Strategic Purchasing for Primary Health Care (SP4PHC) as one of six countries where this project is being implemented. The Philippine UHC policy environment presents a positive and encouraging opportunity for ThinkWell to be a major player in helping to implement the UHC bill as soon as it is signed into law by the Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
Starting with the SP4PHC, ThinkWell looks to expanding its work and contribution to the Philippines by actively participating in ensuring that the country will be able to achieve the goals put forward in the medium-term Philippine Health Development Plan or the Fourmula One Plus for Health.
