About Us

Welcome to the Philippine Ambulatory Pediatric Association, Inc.!
At the Philippine Ambulatory Pediatric Association, we are dedicated to making a meaningful impact on the lives of Filipino children and responding to their unmet needs. Our mission is driven by the noble purpose of ensuring the health and well-being of every child in the Philippines. As you explore our website, we want to share our vision, accomplishments, and the communities we proudly serve.
Over the years, we have identified key advocacies that play a vital role in achieving our mission. Through collaboration and networking, we aim to extend our reach to families, schools, and communities across the Philippines, serving them with compassion and dedication.
Our advocacies encompass a wide range of initiatives that touch the lives of children at various stages of their growth and development. We promote early literacy through the Reach Out and Read Program, instill the love for reading early on, and empower young minds with knowledge and imagination.
Child safety and protection are at the core of our efforts, as we work tirelessly to prevent child injuries and ensure their well-being in every aspect of life. Through tobacco control advocacy, we create smoke-free environments in homes, communities, and schools, safeguarding the health of our children from the dangers of secondhand smoke.
We recognize the importance of comprehensive health supervision for infants, children, and adolescents. Our Bahaghari booklet provides health providers with essential guidelines, enabling them to deliver the best care and support to our young patients.
Addressing mental health concerns among children is of paramount importance to us. Through teacher and parent education, we promote awareness and understanding of mental health, supporting the emotional well-being of children and fostering a nurturing environment for their growth.
None of these accomplishments would be possible without the unwavering support of our members and kind-hearted individuals like you. 
As you browse through our website, we encourage you to explore how you can be a part of PAPA and make a difference in the lives of the children, their families, and the communities they live in.
Your generous donations help us sustain our initiatives, touching the lives of countless children who depend on our care and support. For our members, we invite you to actively participate and carry out our work as a united team, amplifying the impact we can create together.
Join us on this incredible journey of compassion and change. Together, we can build a brighter future for the children of the Philippines, nurturing them into healthy, happy, and thriving individuals.
