Chapter 11 Assessing the efficacy of COVID-19 policies in the Philippines: an analysis on the NPM-based approach to pandemics
Restricted access

The chapter aims to analyse the efficacy of government response to the COVID-19 situation in the Philippines as a case study and will begin by discussing new emerging theories about government. It evidences the analysis through a quantitative measure of the efficacy of implemented policies. The daily incidence of confirmed cases in the Philippines will be used to create a model for transmissibility. These values will then be used to quantify the public value as a measure of policy's efficacy, which will be used as evidence to discuss potential ways to improve the deficiencies of government responses. The chapter will ultimately argue that current government approaches are inefficient and obsolete, and that newer efficient methods to govern can be implemented in various countries to observe real, measurable effects. Research into other countries in southeast Asia will also be briefly analyzed to provide further context in addition to the Philippines situation.
