This handbook presents the list of recommended gender fair terms.

This occasional paper attempts to identify provisions in the National Health Insurance (NHI) Law (Republic Act 7875) which neglect, disregard or out rightly discriminate against women’s needs and rights. An analysis of on whether the civil service provision for women in public service institutions are consistent with the Philippine Plan for Gender-responsive development (PPGRD) upon reviewing the NHI Law and its implementing rules and regulation is also presented in this paper.

This manual is a product of a one-year pilot testing project on the required processes and mechanisms for the Philippine Development Plan for Women (PDPW) in our effort to implement R.A. 7192 in the Northern Mindanao (Region X). It aims to enhance the effectiveness of existing development guidelines at the regional and local levels.
