The study focused on the Women and Children Desk Tanudan, Kalinga. The research design use was the descriptive design with interview as the main data gathering instrument. The informant were twenty-one victim-survivors whose whereabouts were known. The research found that the PNP Women and Children Desk is implemented as experienced by the victim-survivors. They have received the expected mandatory services, other services provided by the government agency concern and the entitlements. Physical violence is the most frequent crime committed. There were reported incidence of psychological violence such asrepeated verbal abuse, harassment and marital infidelity of the husband. There was no reported incidence of sexual abuse and child abuse. Wife battering dominates the other abuses committed in domestic home. There are psychologically abused women but there were no reports on sexually abused women and child abuse. The important and necessary services and supports to the victim-survivors are provided but not substantial to meet all the needs of the victim. There is no obvious show of convergence among the government concern agencies in response to women abuse. The findings justify the recommendation as follows: More trainings of the PNP Women and Children Desk personnel should be instituted and institutionalized. More Local Government Units involvement should be initiated. A PNP Personnel should be assigned exclusively for the Desk so that the task will be concentrated to manning or managing the Desk.Forge and strengthen the convergence of the government agencies concerned to hasten reporting, communication and delivery of the benefits and privileges of the victims including their immediate and important needs.Finally, institutionalized a massive information-education campaign on the laws concerning the protection of women and their children against abusive and violent partners or parents.
