The second semester issue of the Philippine Journal of Development contains articles on sexual education and behavior, the Oil Price Stabilization Fund (OPSF), digital services trade, and health service coverage. The first article explores how knowledge on sexually transmitted infections affects sexual behavior among subpopulations of female young adults in the country. The second article traces the OPSF history and contextualizes the reasons behind its abolition and the downstream oil industry’s subsequent deregulation. The third article assesses measures for the Philippines’ regional integration in terms of its effects on digital services trade. The last article analyzes trends and disparities in health service coverage using data from the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation on insurance claims, membership information, and accredited facilities, merged with auxiliary datasets from the Department of Health and the Philippine Statistics Authority.
