The Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) will hold a webinar on June 18, 2020 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm to feature the PIDS study titled, “Towards Inclusive Social Protection Program Coverage in the Philippines: Examining Gender Disparities”.

Authored by PIDS Research Fellow Aubrey Tabuga and Research Analyst Carlos Cabaero, the paper examined the gender inclusiveness of current social protection programs, such as the Government Service Insurance System for government workers, Social Security System for private sector workers, and PhilHealth, in terms of their coverage. It also analyzed the circumstances of different groups of workers as well as identified the types of occupations and locations of those belonging to the bottom 30 percent of households who have no access to these programs. Further, the study assessed the social insurance aspect of the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program and, most importantly, provided policy recommendations to improve the coverage of social protection programs in the country. 

This webinar will be streamed live on the PIDS Facebook page. Those who want to join the actual webinar should PRE-REGISTER using this link: For inquiries, please contact Ms. Rowena T. Taliping or Ms. Gwen B. de la Cruz at or, respectively.
