This is one of the scorecards in the Monitoring and Evaluation for Equity and Effectiveness (ME3) of the Department of Health. It is a performance assessment of the combined efforts of stakeholders within the province-wide health system (PWHS), which include the clients and public private providers within the municipalities, cities and provinces in order to highlight LGU performance on health sector services.
