PIA Press Release
2008/07/09

All social welfare programs consolidated into single national social welfare strategy

Manila (9 July) -- Exuding confidence that there's still ample time for her administration's social reform targets to be achieved, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo ordered the clustering of all existing social welfare-related programs of the different government offices into a national social welfare strategy that will directly address the impact of the adverse global situation.

In Administrative Order (AO) No. 232, the President stressed that she "plans on working hard the next two years to fulfill" her administration's reform agenda.

"There is still time to generate social impact if efforts are targeted," she declared.

The consolidation of the social welfare programs of the various government agencies into a single, national social welfare strategy "shall be headed by the administrator of the SSS (Social Security System), who shall be granted a Cabinet rank."

Under AO 232, the "existing programs of the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the Department of Health, the Government Service Insurance System, the Social Security System (SSS), and other agencies dealing with social welfare shall be clustered together into a national social welfare program that directly addresses the impact of the adverse global environment."
