“Listahanan” signals the rebirth of the National Household TargetingPicture1 System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Now, the NHTS-PR is also known as “Listahanan” with its tagline Talaan ng Pamilyang Nangangailanagan (List of In Need Families). The battle cry of the NHTS-PR is now more intensified in ensuring that all data being provided to all stakeholders and data users are accurate, complete, and reliable for better service delivery to all poor families who need social protection the most as being implied by the house and the red soft edged check mark in the logo. This is by identifying who and where the poor are.

“Listahanan” is a coined word from Listahan (List) and Tahanan (Household) which connotes that all poor households being listed or included in the database are assured to be potential beneficiaries of social protection services and programs.

To formally introduce “Listahanan” with all stakeholders and data users, the DSWD Field Office 1 plans to launch its new name, brand, and logo in the succeeding months this year simultaneous with the conduct of the second round of household assessment.

DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Suliman approved on the use of the “Listahanan” so that the NHTS-PR would be easily remembered by the public especially all stakeholders and data users.

“Listahanan” is the legitimate database of poor families who deserve to receive programs and services from the government. Making the Listahanan known to the public is assuring that no poor Filipino family will be left behind. (by: Jaesem Ryan A. Gaces, Administrative Assistant V, Listahanan/NHTS-PR)
