Lin­gap Para sa Mahi­rap pro­gram of the city ob­serves ‘im­me­di­ate fam­ily pol­icy' which en­sures that the trans­ac­tions in the of­fice re­ally go to le­git­i­mate pa­tients, but they also tap so­cial work­ers for those who are un­able to go to their of­fice to process as­sis­tance.

Lin­gap Para sa Mahi­rap of­fice-in-charge Josephine Mi­taran, dur­ing the I-Speak me­dia fo­rum yes­ter­day, said they only trans­act with the im­me­di­ate fam­ily of the pa­tients who are seek­ing as­sis­tance.

"Num­ber one jud nato nga pwede mag-process sa Lin­gap kay ang im­me­di­ate fam­ily, kung wala siya'y im­me­di­ate fam­ily, kung ul­timo silin­gan man jud atong gina-himo naa tay as­sess­ment with the so­cial work­ers. Makig-co­or­di­nate mi sa so­cial work­ers sa SPMC naa pud so­cial work­ers naa pud so­cial work­ers sa CSSDO. I-asses nato para maka­hatag ug hin­a­bang (One of those who can process with the Lin­gap is the im­me­di­ate fam­ily, if the pa­tient has no im­me­di­ate fam­ily, even

neigh­bor, we con­duct as­sess­ment with the so­cial work­ers. We co­or­di­nate with the so­cial work­ers of South­ern Philip­pines Med­i­cal Cen­ter, and also with the So­cial work­ers of the CSSDO. We will as­sess so that their needs can be catered)," Mi­taran said.

She said they honor any valid iden­ti­fi­ca­tion card of the re­questor as well as barangay cer­ti­fi­ca­tion which proves that one is a Davao city resident.

They also made sure that the is­suance of barangay clear­ance is made eas­ier through tap­ping the help of Coun­cilor Jan­uary Duterte to put up a satel­lite of­fice that can is­sue and cer­tify that a per­son be­longs to a par­tic­u­lar barangay near SPMC hos­pi­tal premises.

She said Lin­gap Para sa Mahi­rap does not only cater those who are ad­mit­ted in pub­lic hos­pi­tals but also pri­vate hos­pi­tals.
