Dear Mark Jayson De Guzman,

Greetings!

Thank you for your request dated 31 January 2020 under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your request

You requested for information on the following:  (1) Population of abandoned elderly needing medical care by region in the Philippines. 

Response to your request

The DSWD only has limited information on number of abandoned elderly needing medical care residing in its centers and institutions and those who are community based served by the DSWD. Thus, we shall partially grant your request and we shall refer your request with respect to this matter to the proper DSWD office.

It is the Department of Health (DOH) that may also have the data you wish to obtain. Under Executive Order No. 292, the DOH is the government agency that is responsible to collect, analyze and disseminate statistical and other relevant information on the country’s health situation, and requires the reporting of such information from appropriate sources. Therefore, you may wish to direct your request to the DOH via this portal. You may also contact the DOH by telephone at 8651-7800 locals 5003-5004 or via email at callcenter@doh.gov.ph.

If you are not satisfied with the result of the review, you then have the right to appeal to the Office of the President under Administrative Order No. 22 (s. 2011).

Thank you.
Respectfully,

Atty. Sittie Raifah M. Pamaloy-Hassan
