8. With the help of the poverty alleviation and other aid programs how many households have benefited from:
d) relief fund for natural disasters and pre-harvest shortage?
Record the total number of households benefiting from each of the
programs listed in question 6. Note the words “exemption/reduction” which means either
the household doesn’t have to pay at all, or only pay a part such as school fees, hospital
fees, production taxes (including taxes). There are a few locations where it is common
for the commune/ward officials to certify a household as poor to reduce or exempt them
from hospital fees. In this case, question 8c will include the number of households the
commune/ward certifies to reduce or exempt them from hospital fees.
