Allocating and Tracking Sin Tax Revenues for Universal Health Coverage

Tax reforms, public investment and government transparency are part of AER’s core program and mission. As such, AER is currently implementing a project titled Allocating and Tracking Sin Tax Revenues for Universal Health Coverage. The project seeks to study the earmarking of incremental revenues from excise taxes on tobacco and alcohol to universal health care, in particular, public spending and health service delivery under the National Health Insurance Program (NHIP or Philhealth), focusing specifically on the Sponsored Program for indigent Filipinos.
