On April 5 a picket rally was held outside the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office in Manila. The rally focused on the failure of the Universal Health Coverage debate to promote publicly funded health systems, instead promoting private health insurance.

According to one of the rally organisers, Dr Delen de la Paz, it was also to ”protest the issue of the government’s neglect of public health facilities, the deterioration of public health systems and the continuing disregard for the people’s right to health”.   Around 60 doctors, nurses, hospital workers, community health workers, mothers of children injected with Dengvaxia vaccine and community people attended.
