The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), as the Vice Chairperson for the Disaster Response of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), welcomes the result of the recent ‘Tugon sa Masa’ survey on the National Government Performance Rating on Selected Programs, indicating the highest approval rating of 75% on the government’s response to the needs of disaster-hit communities.
The survey was conducted by OCTA Research from October 23-27, 2022, with 1,200 male and female respondents aged 18 years and above.
The participants answered the poll question: “Could you please tell us your opinion about their performance on each program in the first 100 days of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s administration.”
Other government programs listed in the poll include ensuring food security; access to quality education; managing inflation; and poverty reduction, among others.
To maintain this positive rating, the Department vows to continue to strengthen its consistent on-the-ground coordination with the local government units (LGUs) – which are the first responders; the national government agencies (NGAs); private sector; and international partners in responding promptly to disasters and calamities.
