DSWD LEADS 2015 ELDERLY FILIPINO WEEK, URGES PUBLIC TO REPORT ELDERLY ABUSE

As the lead agency in social protection, the Department of Social Welfare and Development continuously conducts advocacy activities to promote the rights and welfare of the disadvantaged and vulnerable sector, including older persons.

One form of advocacy is the celebration of the Elderly Filipino Week on October 1-7 to be led by the DSWD in partnership with other government agencies, local government units (LGU), and non-government organizations (NGOs).

This year’s theme, “Igalang ang Nakatatanda at ang Kanilang mga Karapatan” ,  emphasizes that older persons and their rights should be respected. This came to light in the wake of videos uploaded in social media which went viral showing a man hitting his elderly mother.

According to DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman, the Department continues to advocate for the strict implementation of Republic Act (RA) 9994, or the Expanded Senior Citizens Act of 2010, which provides more benefits and privileges to older persons. They are entitled to 20% discount on the purchase of certain goods and services, special 5% discount on prime commodities and basic necessities, and 5% utility discount on electric and water consumption.

“By implementing the law’s provisions, we are promoting and upholding their rights. The Department also encourages the public to report to the authorities  cases of elderly abuse to ensure their well-being and protection,” Sec. Soliman stated.

Presidential Proclamation No. 470 mandates the annual celebration of Elderly Filipino Week or Linggo ng Nakatatandang Filipino every first week of October to emphasize the important role that older persons play in nation building, as well as raise and address issues concerning the older persons’ sector.

To mark the week-long event, the National Steering Committee,  chaired by DSWD, will conduct activities starting with the Walk for Life to be held at the Quezon City Memorial Circle on October 1 (Thursday),  Forum for Retirees, Talakayan on Social Insurance, “Dalaw Kalinga;” Visit to Visitorless, Indigent, Sick, Older Prisoners (VISO) and disaster preparedness for seniors.

More than 2,000 participants from the different senior citizens’ organizations, other government agencies, and NGOs will join the ‘Walk for Life” at the Quezon City Memorial Circle starting at 6:00am.

Walk for Life is held annually by the Department of Health (DOH)  to enhance awareness of the public on the health concerns and well-being of older persons.

Social protection for older persons

To ensure the well-being of older persons, the DSWD implements the Social Pension for Indigent Senior Citizens which is the provision of P500 monthly cash grants to indigent senior citizens, as stated in Republic Act No. 9994. The Department considers the following indigent senior citizens as its priority for inclusion in the program: (1) frail, sickly, or with disability; (2) without pension from GSIS, SSS, AFPMBAI and other insurance companies; and (3) no permanent source of income or regular support from his/her relatives.

From 2011-2014, the Department prioritized senior citizens aged 77 years old and above. However, for 2015, age coverage of the program covers 65 years old and above.

For 2014,  a total of  403,284 social pension beneficiaries were paid with a budget amounting to P2.9 billion.

For 2015, some  692,256 beneficiaries were paid with a budget amounting to P3.4 billion.

The amount of P5.9 billion was allocated for the monthly stipend of P500 for 2015.

Meanwhile for 2016, a total of 1,182,941 indigent senior citizens are targeted for the Social Pension program with a budget of P7.5 billion.

“With the increased budget, the Department can now serve more older persons in need,”  Sec. Soliman stated.

Aside from the Social Pension  program, DSWD manages four residential care services located in Quezon City, Rizal, Davao City,  and Zamboanga City.  These residential homes take care of older persons who are abandoned and neglected by their families.

Moreover, there are group homes for older persons that provide community-based alternative living arrangement, and senior citizens centers which provide recreational, educational, health and social programs designed for the full enjoyment and benefit of senior citizens.  #  Source – www.dswd.gov.ph

DENR RALLIES PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR COASTAL CLEANUP EVENT

ENVIRONMENT SECRETARY RAMON J.P. PAJE rallied residents of Metro Manila and nearby areas to participate in the multisectoral effort to remove trash from the shores of Manila Bay and a coastal wetland in Las Piñas City, as part of the local celebration of the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) Day on September 19.

So far, a total of 13,000 volunteers have signed up for the event where they will pick up litter at Manila Bay along Roxas Boulevard in Manila and Tanza village in Navotas, and the Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area.

“We urge everyone to take part in this noble undertaking aimed at removing the marine trash that poses multiple threats, from harming wildlife and humans to endangering the economy, tourism and navigation,” Paje said.

The ICC is a 30-year-old global event initiated by the Ocean Conservancy, a non-government organization based in Washington D.C., United States. Its aim is to engage people to remove trash from beaches and waterways around the world, identify the sources of the debris and chance the behavioral patterns that contribute to pollution.

Since the Philippines joined the effort in 1994, it has so far registered 3.39 million volunteers or about 32 percent of the total 10.5 million volunteers the ICC had mobilized worldwide since its inaugural observance in 1986.

Last year, about 562,000 volunteers from 91 countries joined the cleanup, 107,695 of them are from the Philippines. Filipino volunteers have removed 208,438 kilos of trash along 335 kilometers of shorelines and waterways.

The most common items found were cigarette butts, food wrappers, plastic bottles and caps, straws, grocery bags, glass bottles and beverage cans.

“It is ironic that trash collection takes center stage in this global exercise in light of its overarching goal which is to prevent trash from reaching our water bodies,” Paje lamented.

He nevertheless noted how the scale of the effort to address trash problem through cleanup drives has helped shape government policies and corporate and industry practices on waste management and yielded strong alliances on marine rehabilitation efforts even among industry, scientific and conservation leaders.

At the same time, Paje expressed alarm over the large volume of trash collected by ICC volunteers in the Philippines every year.

Based on the annual report of the Ocean Conservancy, the country collected 240,360 kilos in 2010; 485,091 in 2011; more than 1.3 million in 2012 and 734,131 in 2013.

In 2003, Presidential Proclamation No. 470 was issued declaring the third Saturday of September of every year as ICC Day. # Adapted News – www.denr.gov.ph

PH: LET US PROMOTE GOOD HEALTH AND SUSTAIN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

THE PHILIPPINES through the Department of Health called on member economies of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) to promote good health in order to stimulate and sustain economic and social development.

The APEC 2015 theme, “Building Inclusive Economies, Building a Better World”, underscores the significance of promotion in economic cooperation and advancement of inclusive growth in the Asia-Pacific Region to attain productivity and enhance the quality of life of populations across the region. The Philippines identifies four priority areas in drafting the roadmap for the Free Trade Area of the Asia Pacific. These are: (1) enhancing regional integration, (2) mainstreaming small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in global and regional markets, (3) investing in human capital development, and (4) building sustainable and resilient economies. In this regard, APEC recognizes the changing landscape of global health challenges, and the “double burden” of disease resulting from economic and health trends across the region.

“Good health allows citizens to reach their full productive potential, and the innovations that drive good health provide an astounding economic return.” Health Secretary Janette P. Loreto-Garin emphasized.

The Health Working Group (HWG) and the Life Sciences Innovation Forum (LSIF) discussed the results of new initiatives and provided recommendations in preparation for the APEC Leaders’ Meeting in November. The four key priority actions are: (1) Roadmap for the “Healthy Asia Pacific 2020 Initiative” which covers the critical success factors and immediate actions to ensure that the initiative is implemented in a meaningful, sustainable, cost-effective way to mitigate threats to the region’s people, trade and economic security; (2) The need to address the continuous rise of infectious diseases and anti-microbial resistance especially those acquired in health care and institutional settings; (3) Initiating promotion of both physical and mental well-being particularly addressing the increase of chronic diseases and promoting mental health and reduce its stigma; and (4) emphasizing on the fiscal implications of ill-health reiterating that as more people are forced to retire early because of ill-health, the economy will become less productive.

Moreover, policy makers, experts and stakeholders from among the 21 economies convened last August 24 to finalize a  Policy Toolkit which will be a checklist of recommendations to help governments, companies, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in improving health related barriers to women’s ability to enter, remain, and rise in the labor force. The said toolkit will be launched in September 16, 2015 in Manila.

“Women’s empowerment and the promotion of gender equality are keys to achieving sustainable economic development in APEC. Untold millions of women in the Asia-Pacific region have the potential to contribute more fully to their economies. Higher rates of female labor force participation would also counter shrinking labor pools due to variable birth rates and rapidly aging populations. These are facts that need strengthened policies in order to collect best practices. This is where APEC can contribute.” Garin explained.

Prior to the high-level meeting, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) recognized the Philippines with the APEC Lighthouse Award for Business Ethics for the collective contribution of the country’s government, private business sector and civil society in developing and implementing guidance on ethical business practices covering bio-pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

“APEC provides a unique platform for promoting innovation in the health sector and supporting the broader trade and investment agenda. We hope to obtain the meaningful results from the APEC platform of liberalization, facilitation, economic and technical cooperation for both human and economic development.” Garin concluded. # Source – www.doh.gov.ph

PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTORS CRAFT MEASURES TO ADDRESS FOOD WASTAGE

Member-economies of the Asia Pacific economic region forged a stronger partnership to build a stronger Public-Private partnership, which seeks to reduce if not eliminate food losses in the supply chain of fishery and livestock during one of the meetings of the APEC Food Security Week. 

During a seminar organized by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Chinese Taipei and the Ministry for Primary Industries of New Zealand with the Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PhilMech) on September 27, 2015, stakeholders from both the public and the private sectors exchanged ideas and experiences to generate policy recommendations, action plans and effective methodologies in order to provide solutions to the global problem on food losses.

With the growing concern for food loss, the Philippines along with other economies deem it necessary to address the issues which contributes to food loss and come up with policies and measures that will address wastage in the agriculture sector, specifically within the livestock and fishing industries.

According to PhilMech Director Rex L. Bingabing there is a need to ensure sufficient supply of affordable, safe and good quality food.

“With the additional new challenges in food production such as climate change, decreasing production area and depletion of natural resources, food loss and food waste must be given serious attention,” he stressed.

Bingabing added that APEC economies have a big role in addressing these challenges since majority of the total global food production comes from the APEC region. “Cooperation of different economies is important,” he said.

As concerned institutions recognize that the problem on food loss and wastage is not the sole problem of the government alone, the private sector is called upon to take action and contribute to the long-term solution.

According to Ms. Dong-Chong Hsiou, Deputy Director General of the Department of International Affairs, Council of Agriculture—Chinese Taipei, the private sector plays a critical role in reducing losses along the supply chain.

“We are positive that this seminar will give value to the inputs and participation of the private sector, and so we encourage you to provide us with more creative and innovative ideas and solutions,” she said.

About 80 delegates from both public and private sectors exchanged information on basic research, current trends, business models, and postharvest technologies in the fishery and livestock industry during the one-day seminar.

Foreign delegates came from Chile, People’s Republic of China, Japan, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, the Philippines, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, The United States, and Vietnam.

From September 27-October 6, 2015, Iloilo City will host a series of food security meetings expected to gather more than 900 delegates including High Level Policy Dialogues on Agricultural Biotechnology, as well as Food Security and Blue Economy.  # Source - www.da.gov.ph/(PhilMech/DA).

PRESIDENT AQUINO DECLARES THE YEARS 2015 TO 2024 AS CIVIL REGISTRATION AND VITAL STATISTICS DECADE

President Benigno S. Aquino III recently signed Proclamation No. 1106 which declared the years 2015 to 2024 as Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Decade (CRVS).  Said proclamation is a concrete manifestation of the Philippine government’s support to the outcome of the Ministerial Conference on CRVS in Asia and the Pacific held in November 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), as the agency mandated by Republic Act No. 10625 to carry out, enforce and administer civil registration functions in the country, shall lead all relevant activities that seek to: uphold the continuous and compulsory recording of births, death, marriages and other acts and events concerning the status of persons; enhance awareness on the importance of civil registry documents; and, produce accurate, complete and updated vital statistics.

As the Philippines also agreed to adopt the Ministerial Declaration to “Get everyone in the picture” in Asia and the Pacific, Proclamation No. 1106, likewise, enjoins “all agencies and instrumentalities of the National Government and local government units, including government-owned
or -controlled corporations, in consultation with the private sector, development partners and the citizenry” to actively support all activities and programs relevant to “Get every Pinoy and Pinay in the Picture!”

In a related development, the PSA just successfully concluded the conduct of the 9th National Convention of Solemnizing Officers at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia, Pasay City.  Held on August 25-27, the activity successfully gathered more than a thousand priests, pastors, imams, tribal chieftains and other solemnizing officers from various religious sects and denominations; city/municipal mayors, members of the judiciary; and local civil registrars from all over the country, among others, for the presentations and discussions on marriage laws and registration procedures; roles and responsibilities of solemnizing officers; and, the sharing of experiences and best practices in the solemnization of marriages.  The three-day event had for its theme: “Get every Solemnizing Officer in the Picture.

Moreover, a two-day Orientation Workshop for the Inter-Agency Committee on CRVS was held this September in Tagaytay City.  The workshop aimed to:

1) prepare the work plan for the CRVS Decade;
2) set the national targets of the Regional Action Framework;
3) get the commitment of the member agencies (created pursuant to PSA Memorandum Order No. 1 Series of 2015); and,
(4) discuss and come-up with recommendation on issues and concerns on CRVS. # Source – www.psa.gov.ph

DENR RALLIES PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR COASTAL CLEANUP EVENT

ENVIRONMENT SECRETARY RAMON J.P. PAJE rallied residents of Metro Manila and nearby areas to participate in the multisectoral effort to remove trash from the shores of Manila Bay and a coastal wetland in Las Piñas City, as part of the local celebration of the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) Day on September 19.

So far, a total of 13,000 volunteers have signed up for the event where they will pick up litter at Manila Bay along Roxas Boulevard in Manila and Tanza village in Navotas, and the Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area.

“We urge everyone to take part in this noble undertaking aimed at removing the marine trash that poses multiple threats, from harming wildlife and humans to endangering the economy, tourism and navigation,” Paje said.

The ICC is a 30-year-old global event initiated by the Ocean Conservancy, a non-government organization based in Washington D.C., United States. Its aim is to engage people to remove trash from beaches and waterways around the world, identify the sources of the debris and chance the behavioral patterns that contribute to pollution.

Since the Philippines joined the effort in 1994, it has so far registered 3.39 million volunteers or about 32 percent of the total 10.5 million volunteers the ICC had mobilized worldwide since its inaugural observance in 1986.

Last year, about 562,000 volunteers from 91 countries joined the cleanup, 107,695 of them are from the Philippines. Filipino volunteers have removed 208,438 kilos of trash along 335 kilometers of shorelines and waterways.

The most common items found were cigarette butts, food wrappers, plastic bottles and caps, straws, grocery bags, glass bottles and beverage cans.

“It is ironic that trash collection takes center stage in this global exercise in light of its overarching goal which is to prevent trash from reaching our water bodies,” Paje lamented.

He nevertheless noted how the scale of the effort to address trash problem through cleanup drives has helped shape government policies and corporate and industry practices on waste management and yielded strong alliances on marine rehabilitation efforts even among industry, scientific and conservation leaders.

At the same time, Paje expressed alarm over the large volume of trash collected by ICC volunteers in the Philippines every year.

Based on the annual report of the Ocean Conservancy, the country collected 240,360 kilos in 2010; 485,091 in 2011; more than 1.3 million in 2012 and 734,131 in 2013.

In 2003, Presidential Proclamation No. 470 was issued declaring the third Saturday of September of every year as ICC Day. # Adapted News – www.denr.gov.ph

Module 2 “Examining the Destinations” informs the learner of the possible resources they may use in realizing their dreams through the different SHS tracks.
