Bello supports deployment of more Filipino nurses, healthcare staff overseas

MANILA - The Philippines ' labor secretary said on Wednesday he will ask for government approval to allow 5,000 more healthcare workers to be deployed abroad, double the annual cap in a country that is one of the world's biggest sources of nurses.

Nurses are among the more than 10 million Filipinos who work and live overseas, with annual remittances in excess of $30 billion a key driver for the country's consumption-driven economy."There are reasons to allow health workers to seek good jobs abroad," Bello told a news conference. "We will make sure we will not run out of nurses and doctors."

EP 14: Filipino nurses during the pandemicListen to this episode from ANC After The Fact on Spotify. Early during the pandemic, President Rodrigo Duterte banned Filipino health care workers from leaving for work abroad. The reason was seen as logical as it was patriotic — why deploy nurses, for instance, abroad when the Philippines we are also battling a raging pandemic? But the issue, it turned out, was much more complicated. yes, our health care system needed all the help it could. But how exactly did the initial deployment ban help our local pandemic response? It did it only provide unnecessary restrictions on our health care workers who wanted to leave because of limited opportunities here?
