About Us

The Zuellig Family Foundation (ZFF) is focused on improving health conditions in rural Filipino communities by providing training programs for local government health leaders, including mayors and municipal health officers, to strengthen health leadership and improve governance.

Our Approach: ZFF Health Change Model

The ZFF Health Change Model recognizes that local leadership is the key to creating healthcare systems that are responsive to the needs of the poor.

Based on this approach, local leaders—particularly the mayors and the municipal health officers—undergo a transformative training to help them appreciate the significance of their role in developing healthcare systems for the poor. This enables them to understand and to address the complexity of health issues in their communities.

Our Programs
