4Ps

The Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) is a human development measure of the national government that provides conditional cash grants to the poorest of the poor, to improve the health, nutrition, and the education of children aged 0-18. It is patterned after the conditional cash transfer (CCT) schemes in Latin American and African countries, which have lifted millions of people around the world from poverty.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is the lead government agency of the 4Ps.

OBJECTIVES
The 4Ps has dual objectives as the flagship poverty alleviation program of the Aquino administration:

  1. social assistance, giving monetary support to extremely poor families to respond to their immediate needs; and
  2. social development, breaking the intergenerational poverty cycle by investing in the health and education of poor children through programs such as:
    • health check-ups for pregnant women and children aged 0 to 5;
    • deworming of schoolchildren aged 6 to 14;
    • enrollment of children in daycare, elementary, and secondary schools; and
    • family development sessions.

The 4Ps also helps the Philippine government fulfill its commitment to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)—specifically in eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, in achieving universal primary education, in promoting gender equality, in reducing child mortality, and in improving maternal health care.

COVERAGE
The 4Ps operates in all the 17 regions in the Philippines, covering 79 provinces, 143 cities, and 1,484 municipalities. Beneficiaries are selected through the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR), which identifies who and where the poor are in the country.

In general, the following criteria must be satisfied to become eligible for the program:

  • Residents of the poorest municipalities, based on 2003 Small Area Estimates (SAE) of the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB)
  • Households whose economic condition is equal to or below the provincial poverty threshold
  • Households that have children 0-18 years old and/or have a pregnant woman at the time of assessment
  • Households that agree to meet conditions specified in the program
