DSWD among 'top-performing' gov’t agencies under PRRD - Pulse Asia:

This is somewhat a good thing because in times of natural disasters they are one of the government agencies that it is expected to be responsive to the needs of the victims or evacuees.

In the most recent survey conducted by the survey firm Pulse Asiathe Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is among top-performing government agency under the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

The survey which was conducted  from December 3 to 8, 2019 showed that the agency received an 85 percent approval rating for its performance.

The Pulse Asia said DSWD, along with the Department of Education (DepEd), were recognized as “top performers among all government agencies included in the survey”.

In a statement issued by the DSWD, the high approval rate can be attributed to the agency’s prompt and compassionate delivery of its social protection programs. 
This also means that the programs and services of the Department have a trickle-down effect and are being felt, especially by those at the grassroots level.

It might be highlighted that among DSWD’s program includes the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), Social Pension for Indigent Senior Citizens, and the Unconditional Cash Transfer Program contributed to the reduction of poverty incidence from 23.3 percent in 2015 to 16.6 percent in 2018.

Recognizing the performance of DSWD in delivering social protection programs that contribute to the reduction of poverty is an affirmation that its efforts to improve the lives of the poor, marginalized and vulnerable Filipinos are gaining traction, the statement reads.
Improving the well-being of poor families is among DSWD’s thrusts and priorities for this year which are consistent with the Philippine Development Plan and which support the priority agenda of the administration of reducing poverty and empowering the poor and vulnerable sectors.
