Recognizing the extent of the country’s problem with hunger and malnutrition, and the limited resources to address this, Rise Against Hunger strongly supports the utilization of evidence-based interventions. Recently, Rise Against Hunger, Philippines has embarked on two research projects as part of its program monitoring and evaluation. A preliminary study on the influence of providing vitamin-fortified meal packs on compliance with family planning and maternal health care services during pregnancy, a qualitative study among Aeta women in Porac, Pampanga, was conducted and the initial results were presented in the 2nd National Family Planning Conference in Cebu City on November 7-9, 2017. Another study in the pipeline is a documentation of perceptions, challenges and lessons learned on the food assistance and relief operations for internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Marawi City, who temporarily reside in the evacuation centers in Saguiaran, Lanao del Sur. To further promote evidence-based programming and knowledge sharing, Rise Against Hunger, Philippines also offers research consulting services on topics related to food, nutrition and health.
