DSWD joins a dialogue on barangay settlement and referral system

The DSWD Field Office 9 attended the Community-Based Dialogue (CBD) conducted by the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) which tackled issues on barangay settlement and referral system under the Republic Act No. 9262 or the “Anti-Violence against Women and their Children Act of 2004” held on June 25 at Primera Hotel, Zamboanga City.

“Through the dialogue, we were able to discuss the role of the barangay in handling reports of abuse, neglect, or exploitation,” said Rowena Eustaquio, Regional Focal for Women, Children, and Family.

According to her, the barangay is mandated to designate a gender-sensitive worker (kagawad or tanod) to be in charge of the barangay help desk that will receive and monitor VAWC cases and shall refer victims to the appropriate agency for the right intervention.

The worker in the help desk must enter reports in the barangay blotter for child abuse and domestic violence cases where this shall be kept confidential at all times. Meanwhile, anyone can report to the barangay, and if the report is made by a victim who is less than 18 years old, only personal circumstances must be asked from him or her. 

“The barangay is not allowed to make settlements of VAWC cases on their level. Their role is to primarily receive reports and refer clients to the right agencies for proper intervention,” clarified Eustaquio.

The objective of the said dialogue was to find a common ground and understanding of the issues and concerns with regards to barangay settlement and referral system. During the activity, the roles of each of the participating agencies were also discussed. Aside from the DSWD and CHR, other agencies such as the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Philippine National Police (PNP), Department of Health (DOH), and several barangay officials, to name a few, were also in attendance.

“The DSWD cannot save the world alone. We need a multi-stakeholder partnership to address the needs of our clients especially those who are victims of abuse and domestic violence,” she ended. ###

DSWD readies for Listahanan 3 assessment

The DSWD Field Office 9 through the National Household Targeting Unit (NHTU) is currently preparing for the upcoming Listahanan 3 assessment to be conducted later this year pursuant to the Executive Order 867, series of 2010 which requires the updating of the Listahanan database every four years. 

“Right now, we are doing some preparatory activities in line with the forthcoming assessment in October this year,” said Michael DS. Mustafa, head of NHTU.

According to Mustafa, a four-phase project cycle will be observed to guide the process of identifying the poor. These phases include Preparatory Phase, Data Collection and Analysis Phase, Validation and Finalization Phase, and Reports Generation Phase.

For Listahanan 3, the project cycle will run for 1 year and 2 months. “Since May 2019, we have already been working on with the first cycle.  The areas to be assessed and the data-collection strategy appropriate for those areas were already identified,” he added.

Furthermore, all provinces, municipalities, and cities across the region will be covered by the assessment. Apart from the identification of the areas, also included in the present phase are the updating of the Proxy Means Test (PMT) model, enhancement of the Listahanan information technology systems, hiring and training of field staff, and orientation of local government units (LGUs) and other project partners on the implementation of the L3 assessment.

“We will be deploying 1,247 field workers during the data-collection activity. They will be responsible for conducting house-to-house interviews to more than 700,000 target households,” he said. However, at present, the field office has yet to wait for the authority to hire before filling in the positions needed.

The Listahanan is an information management system that identifies who and where the poor are nationwide. It aims to establish a socio-economic database of poor households to serve as a reference in the formulation of programs and policies along with social protection. More importantly, it seeks to reduce the problems of leakage or inclusion of non-poor and at the same time, lessen exclusion or under-coverage of the poor, particularly in social protection programs. ###
