Peruvian Social Program’cuna mas‘ of the Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion (Midi) renewed the ISO 9001:2015 certification it obtained for its quality management system, as well as the ISO 37001:2016 certification it received for its anti-corruption management system in different processes within the Service Family Support (SAF).
Both recognitions ratify the ethics of the social program, which actively prevents corruption and promotes transparency. Furthermore, they confirm the efficiency and high quality standards followed both in the provision of services to citizens and in the internal institutional processes.
During the recertification ceremony, Midis manager Dina Boluarte highlighted her sector’s commitment to strict compliance with regulations against bribery and corruption, as well as to applying continuous improvement in all its process, in order to achieve high quality standards.
“Achievements can be achieved through hard work and effort, such as these ISO certifications which generate quality in public management and therefore those who benefit the most are the vulnerable people across the country. Public servants must provide good services to citizens,” she said.
The aforementioned social program obtained ISO certifications in April 2019 for its quality management system and anti-corruption measures applied to processes within the Family Support Service (SAF).
Such a service reinforces the positive parenting and health care practices adopted by more than 115,130 families in rural areas of 19 regions of the country.
This service is of great importance for the social program, as it allows to reach in a timely and strategic way the pregnant women of the said homes and the children under 36 months, in order to contribute to the development of their early childhood.
For her part, the executive director of Cuna Mas, Lourdes Sevilla, said that the social program has taken on the great responsibility of maintaining high quality and anti-corruption standards with the first ISO certification.
