Basic facts and current issues

Basic Facts and Current Issues

High prevalence/incidence of Deafness in the Philippines. Ratio is as high as 2-3: 1000 Filipinos. As of June 2005 the Philippines has a total population of 86 million Filipinos with more than 350,000 Deaf people in the Philippines.

Deaf people are greatly marginalized due to lack of accessibility and basic services for the Deaf in the Philippines

There is great need of human resource when it come to programs and projects for the Deaf

Basic facts and current issues1

Basic Facts and Current issues

In the recent nationwide survey and case monitoring on the incidence of physical and sexual abuse to Deaf children conducted by The Philippine Deaf Resource Center, statistics would show that 65-70% of Deaf boys and girls are being molested.

According to the study conducted by Lyer and Fortunato in 2005 out of 60 Deaf respondents in Manila and Cebu, one out of three Deaf women has been raped. In a separate study conducted by De Guzman in 2002, 32 Deaf women respondents in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao; 72% were abused or battered, and 63% of them were abused by their own fathers.

There is a need to organize and manage volunteers for effective and efficient delivery of basic services to the Deaf
