POEA temporarily bans sending of PH health workers abroad




The Philippines just made it a priority to make sure we have the available human resources in the battle against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or Covid-19.
The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has just suspended the deployment of health workers abroad “to prioritize” the country which is currently battling the pandemic brought about by Covid-19.

POEA’s resolution states that the deployment of health workers is suspended “until the national state of emergency is lifted and until COVID-19-related travel restrictions are lifted at the destination country.”

The following are the health workers covered by the suspension of deployment as provided by the POEA Resolution:
·        Medical doctor/physician
·            Nurse
·            Microbiologist
·            Molecular biologist
·            Medical technologist
·            Clinical analyst

·            Respiratory therapist
·            Pharmacist
·            Laboratory technician
·            X-ray/radiologic technician
·            Nursing assistant/nursing aid
·            Operator of medical equipment
·            Supervisor of health services and personal care

As per the POEA, such a move aims to: “prioritize human resource allocation for the national health care system at the time of the national state of emergence.”
“Negotiations of bilateral labor agreements for government-to-government deployment of health care workers are temporarily suspended until the duration of the national state of emergency,” POEA further said.
