PWD FAQs

(As of today Dec11, 2014, The NCDA is yet to give a go signal on the availability and release of new PWD Cards, we will advise everyone as soon as we receive words from NCDA)

REDx, in coordination with HIV AIDS SUPPORT HOUSE (HASH) and the National Council on Disability Affairs, has been processing PWD applications for the community. Please note the following concerns we have so far gathered and the responses:

WHY PROCESS WHEN THEY CAN DO IT ON THEIR OWN?

We have received many reports of discrimination across several LGUs and we coordinate the reports and investigations, we are helping the community for now.

WHAT ISSUES ARE BEING ENCOUNTERED PROCESSING AND WHAT IS BEING DONE?

Issues range from LGUs refusing to process the PWD application, to confidentiality concerns. We have forwarded all the incident reports to the NCDA.

WILL THE PROCESSING BE DONE ALWAYS FOR THE COMMUNITY?

No,by January 2017, all PWD cards Should be processed at the LGU level. This includes all renewals.

HOW DOES HASH PROCESS THE PWD?

HASH closely coordinates with NCDA for the processing.

WHAT IF I DON’T REPORT LGU RELATED ISSUES?

Then please don’t expect the issues to be resolved.

WHAT IF ESTABLISHMENTS DON’T ACKNOWLEDGE THE CARDS?

Please report to HASH.info@asia.com
