BALANGA CITY, Bataan – With persistent efforts in maintaining the early attained vision of the province to have the lowest poverty incidence in the country, the Provincial Government of Bataan received “Listahanan” from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Region 3 this morning during the traditional flag raising ceremony at the Bataan People’s Center.

Listahanan or the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction is an information management system that is intended to identify the poorest of the poor and their location which is a basis to determine who qualify to be among the beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), Phil Health, and other programs of DSWD.

This is in line with Republic Act No.10173 which is an act protecting individual personal information and communications systems in the government and the private sectors, creating a national privacy commission.

This database is awarded to Bataan for being the second province in the region to comply with DSWD’s requirements next to Zambales Province.
