Launch of Policy Toolkit

The Policy Toolkit represents a menu of options that economies may pursue in part or as a whole on key issues on which they want to focus within the “Healthy Women, Healthy Economies” objective.


Healthy Women, Healthy Economies Experts Group

In August 2015, an Experts Group came together in Manila to form a Policy Toolkit to support APEC government officials, policymakers, civil society and the private sector seeking to improve female economic participation through better health, cognizant that there is no one size fits all approach.


Policy Toolkit Literature Review

Development of the Policy Toolkit was informed by a literature review and was co-chaired by the Philippines (Department of Health, Philippine Commission on Women, and Department of Labor & Employment) and Merck.
