The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is the lead government agency of the 4Ps.
The 4Ps has dual objectives as the flagship poverty alleviation program of the Aquino administration:
*social assistance, giving monetary support to extremely poor families to respond to their immediate needs; and
*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.
The 4Ps operates in all the 17 regions in the Philippines, covering 79 provinces, 143 cities, and 1,484 municipalities....
