Center for Advocacy and Policy Development (CAPDEV)
PLCPD’s frontliner in its PHD advocacy at the national level is the Center for Advocacy and Policy Development (CAPDEV). Directly engaging legislators and other entities within the legislature, CAPDEV leads in pushing for the passage of national policies on PHD, and conduct of congressional oversight on, and increase in budgetary allocations for, PHD laws. Through active networking and coalition-building, CAPDEV bridges the legislature, government agencies, and civil society to gather support and consolidate efforts for PHD policy advocacy.
Backed by action researches, CAPDEV efficiently puts out issue analyses and position papers, monitors the status of PHD measures pending in both chambers of Congress, and engages in media tit-for-tat.
