Building a team
The Philippines has a strong tradition of civil society engagement. Seasoned public health advocates recognized a need to diversify expertise and expand capacity in road safety. The Global Health Advocacy Incubator supported local leaders in building a robust, integrated, passionate coalition, utilizing our extensive network to identify and attract new partners to the cause. The coalition zeroed in on an advocacy goal that would benefit some of the most vulnerable road users – children who are not using car seats – and began preparing a campaign plan to pass a mandatory child restraint law in the Philippines.
