US part of problem now for luring nurses: Pres. Duterte




Recently the Inter Agency Task Force on the Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) reversed the ruling of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) on the temporary ban on Filipino health professionals going abroad.



President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in one of his public address admits that traditional destination for Filipino health professionals- United States of America is also part of the problem why the lure to go abroad among the country’s professionals is so strong.


“I’d like to address my – may pinapatamaan ako ang Pilipino mismo pati ‘yung mga countries that traditionally have been lukewarm or refusing to understand or causing problems for other nations – America,” President Rodrigo Duterte said.

“Ngayon ganito ang problema namin, America is part of the problem of the Filipinos now,” he added.

“Kasi sa karaming tinamaan sa kanila, marami ng patay maski sino na lang nananawagan sila basta ‘yung nurse, mga nurse sige punta kayo sa embassy, i-process nila ang visa one day, kinabukasan lipad ka na,” President Duterte said.


“So ‘yung tayo naman ang task force ganito, huwag kayong umalis lahat either may gusto o wala, kagustuhan mo ayaw mo dahil mangangailangan – there’s no end in sight, anong katapusan nito, wala pa – and our numbers are increasing. From the 200 lang ngayon, it has ballooned umabot na ng 4,932 cases. Ang nag-recover 242, ang patay 315,” he explained.

“Ang problema nito itong Amerikano, you could have relied on your own human resource. Ibig sabihin dapat kayo umasa sana sa sariling mga tao ninyo. Eh ngayon kinukuha, kinakaltasan mo ang Pilipinas pagdating ng panahon magkulang, sorry na lang tayo,” Duterte said.

“But I cannot – hindi ko sinisisi, hindi ako galit, wala akong emotions actually about this. But kung gusto ninyong kayong mga nurse na Pilipino gusto ninyong magsilbi sa ibang bayan, sa ibang tao, okay lang sa akin. Ito lang tandaan mo pagdating ng panahon kung maghirap kami – hindi natin alam ngayon eh pa-increase nang increase, first wave pa ito,” he said.
“So kayo na lang mag-intindi, wala akong… Iyong sinabi ni Teddy Boy na hindi natin mapigilan ang pag-alis ng mga Filipino to honor ‘yung kontrata, kasi may kontrata na, impairment of obligation of contracts at saka ‘yung their right to travel. Ako, I’d like to take the opposite view that itong ganito sa ordinaryong – ordinary times, talagang hindi kayo mapigilan at walang makasabi sa inyo umalis kayo o huwag kayong umalis, tanggap kayo, magpirma ka ng kontrata,” he added.
