Tanay strives to provide all its constituents in the poblacion and upland barangays with services due them. The local government is also keenly aware of the need to protect its constituents from all forms of abuse and to offer them programs, policies, and basic services regardless of their geographical location in the municipality.
Among other things, Tanay LGU has pushed for the creation of Barangay Violence Against Women and Children desks and committees to take up the cudgels of such vulnerable sector of the society.
The Municipal Social Welfare and Development office has been conducting seminar-workshops apart from its monthly VAWC Council meetings. The said activities aim to ensure that abuses and violence committed against women and children are fully monitored and addressed, as well as to equip the latter with valuable knowledge about their rights under the law and how they can prevent and stop abuses done to them.
The municipality’s Rural Health Unit (RHU) has also ensured that Tanayans enjoy access to basic health services. The LGU provides free Philhealth cards to indigent constituents, while its RHU provides expert maternal care, TB detection and treatment, and primary care to concerned beneficiaries. It has also established community health programs (CHPs) in which Tanay RHU, through its community health workers (CHWs) aims to empower indigenous peoples of Tanay, particularly the Dumagats and Remontados.
Persons with disabilities, on the other hand, are given access ramps and handrails both on the entrance and exits of the municipal building. A wheel chair is also on standby at the entrance. These facilities are in compliance with Accessibility Law or BP 344.
Additionally, there are designated express lanes for PWDs, senior citizens, and pregnant women on the municipality’s frontline services such as Treasury, Assessor’s, and Licensing sections.
