Philippine labour migration for health workers

Philippine pre-decision booklet on labour migration for health workers

The Philippines is known as a major source country of migrant labour in the world. More than 10 million Filipinos are living or working in different parts of the world. Labour migration from the Philippines has grown constantly for the past three decades.

The booklet focuses on information needed by workers prior to making a decision to migrate for work overseas. Some aspiring migrants have opted to abandon plans to move to another country after receiving information on actual living and employment conditions abroad. Pre-decision information is crucial in the fight against illegal recruitment practices.
