Taguiwalo said under their guidelines, DSWD social workers can immediately approve the giving of medicines to indigents if they are worth P5,000 or below.

The government can also pay for medicines that cost as much as P25,000 but this would have to be subject to approval by the field office.



The DSWD chief clarified that no cash will be given to the poor patients but would provide them with guarantee or referral letters. The indigent patient will then present the letters to drug stores so they can be given free medicines.





WHO CAN AVAIL OF THE FREE MEDICINES?

  • The needy, vulnerable, disadvantaged poor and from the other informal sector. Other indigents base on DSWD assessment.
  • Government employees including contractuals
  • Individual in crisis base on the assessment of social workers





WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS NEEDED?


  • Clinical abstract/medical certificate with full name, signature and license number of a physician
  • Doctor's prescription with a name of a patient

  • Valid IDs

The DSWD will implement, manage, monitor and gives report and evaluation of the program. The program will be implemented with the help of Crisis Intervention Unit (CIU) of the agency.








For those who wants to avail this program, you may visit the nearest DSWD field or satellite offices in your area. Be sure you are qualified to avail and do not forget to bring the requirements mentioned above.

DSWD Secretary Judy Taguiwalo has issued an appeal to the public that they can report any irregularities with the relief assistance, cash for work, food for work, emergency cash assistance, and modified/ core shelter assistance  in calamity stricken areas. All they need to do is to go to the E-reklamo website.    E-reklamo is a complaints management ticket system. All you have to do is fill the needed info and they will take appropriate action. Aside from e-reklamo, you can also make a complaint by calling 8888. Sec. Taguiwalo reiterated that every citizen has a right to complaint.

If you observed any irregularities such as this, do not hesitate and file a complaint! The fight against corruption in the government must start from you.
