In 2017-18, Coram International carried out a situation analysis of women and children for UNICEF Philippines. The consultancy included the development of a national situation analysis to provide a comprehensive assessment of the situation of children in the Philippines  covering nutrition, health, water, sanitation and hygiene, education, child poverty and inequality, and child protection, along with an analysis of the causes of key rights deprivations and core barriers and bottlenecks to the full realisation of children’s rights. The study involved an analysis of existing quantitative data, laws, policies, reports and other literature and in-country qualitative data collection in Manila, through a series of key informant interviews and workshops with key stakeholders. The reports aim to support national planning and development processes and to contribute to building an evidence base on disadvantaged boys and girls. The reports developed implications for policy and programming based on the key findings.

This study also included the development of a separate report on the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao which involved an analysis of in-country qualitative data collection in Cotabato City. This report will be published in late 2018.
