The Department of Home Affairs and Local Government (DILG) in the National Capital Region has recognized the Muntinlupa Anti-Drug Abuse Council (MADAC) as highly functional and the Muntinlupa Peace and Order Council as functional based on audits of 2019 and 2021.
“Following the regional success, all 17 Local Peace and Order Councils in the NCR achieved functional scores for the 2019 and 2021 POC audit, and all 17 Anti-Drug Councils in the region achieved high scores and moderate for the ADAC. [Anti-Drug Abuse Council] Audit”, according to the DILG-NCR.
According to the Muntinlupa Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Council (DAPCO), the audits were based on the implementation of drug programs by the Muntinlupa city government, including drug intervention for PWUD (people who use drugs).
MADAC was created to “serve as a focal point through which various people and organizations work and cooperate together in the planning, implementation and evaluation of programs and activities concerning the prevention of drug abuse”.
The DILG ADAC performance audit of local government units is organized annually based on the following criteria: organization, allocation of a substantial amount in the ADAC plan, formulation and implementation of plans and programs, supervision of ADAC meetings components and innovations.
