MOI to transfer welfare work to MOHW

The Ministry of the Interior (MOI) will transfer its related welfare work to the newly-established Ministry of Health and Welfare (MOHW) on Tuesday, July 23rd.

According to the MOI, the Legislative Yuan passed the organizational law of the MOHW and its subordinated agencies at the end of May this year, which was followed by an announcement from the presidential office in June 19th and subsequent implementation of the legislation.

The Executive Yuan is set to open the MOHW on July 23rd; work such as social welfare, social assistance, social insurance, domestic violence and sexual assault prevention, national pension issues and other services will be integrated into the MOHW starting on that date.

In addition, the MOI’s 13 social and political institutions, including Northern Region Senior Citizens’ Home, also will be placed under the administration of the MOHW.

The MOI representative pointed out that the staff of the MOI and its subordinate units currently numbers 22,206, and the total staff members who will transfer to other units will be 1291.

In response to the reorganization of the Executive Yuan, the MOI is expected to transfer tasks related to the national parks, sewers, construction industries, and farmer’s health insurance services to the Ministry of Environmental Resources, Ministry of Transportation and Construction, as well as Ministry of Agriculture, in the near future.

After having completed the reorganization, the staff of the MOI will be reduced to 19,997; the MOI will be responsible for civil affairs, household registration affairs, land administration, religion and ritual issues, administration of cooperatives and civic groups, police administrative affairs, disaster prevention, fire fighting, conscription, immigration, police education, airborne services, construction and planning, as well as land surveying and mapping.

According to the MOI, it will be following the on-going review processes of the related organizational acts, and implement the related changes to ensure a smooth transition and to create a beneficial result.
