Statement of Senator Joel Villanueva on the lifting of deployment of Filipino overseas healthcare workers with existing employment contracts

We're glad about this latest development because the sweeping ban on the deployment of health workers, especially those with existing employment contracts, puts them at risk of losing their jobs abroad, as well as the great economic impact to them for their lost income while the ban is in place.

We reiterate that our government should track all unemployed healthcare workers and deploy them to the frontlines with commensurate pay and benefits to augment the number of healthcare workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
