The launching of the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) Database was one of the highlights during the 22nd NSM Opening Ceremony that was hosted by the Department of Social Welfare and Development held last October 3, 2011 at Century Park Hotel, Malate, Manila.

The NHTS-PR Database serves as a guide to national government agencies and other stakeholders in identifying beneficiaries of their social protection programs.
