New Libyan President Mohammed el-Magarief lauded Filipino nurses and medical workers in Libya for their important contribution to Libyan society, the Department of Foreign Affairs said.
 
DFA spokesman Raul Hernandez said the Libyan leader made this acknowledgment when new Philippine envoy to Libya Oscar Orcine presented his credentials to him last Oct. 22.
 
"(The) President of Libya acknowledged (the) contribution of Filipino workers to Libyan society during Ambassador Oscar Orcine's presentation of credentials," Hernandez said in a post on his Twitter account.
 
During the tension in Libya, many Filipino medical workers had chosen to stay behind and tend to the injured.
 
A separate news release on the DFA website said the new Libyan leader also stressed the Ambassador's role in enhancing relations between Libya and the Philippines.
 
He likewise wished Orcine success in his mission in the new Libya, the DFA said.
 
Peace process
 
During his audience with el-Magarief, Orcine conveyed to him the greetings of President Benigno Aquino III and of the Filipino people.
 
He also thanked him for Libya's significant contribution to the peace process.
 
Libya was a member of the International Monitoring Team looking into the ceasefire between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
 
For his part, Magarief cited the long-established and friendly relations between Libya and Philippines since 1976.
 
He acknowledged the signing of a framework peace agreement between the government and the Bangsamoro "as a significant milestone in establishing enduring peace and development in Mindanao."
 
Orcine also expressed the Philippines' continuing commitment to the march to freedom and democracy of the new Libya and conveyed the country’s best wishes for the Libyan people.
 
"He also thanked Libya for giving protection to the thousands of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) evacuated during the revolution last year as well as to the Filipino nurses and other medical, teachers and skilled technical workers who chose to remain to carry out their duties in numerous hospitals and worksites and camps in Libya," the DFA said.
 
Orcine also expressed his resolve to promote excellent relations between the two countries by pursuing agreements and implementing cooperation in different fields: political, health, labor, education, human resources, information and communications technology, investments, tourism and commerce, socio-cultural, and others. –KG, GMA News

MANILA, Philippines - Despite the existing deployment ban, the Iraqi government wants to hire Filipino doctors and nurses.
Health Secretary Enrique Ona said yesterday that Iraqi Ambassador Wadee Al-Batti had paid him a visit, asking permission to hire some 1,000 to 2,000 Filipino nurses and doctors.
“The opportunity of our health workers to go abroad is really big because the worldwide demand is tremendous,“ Ona said.
He said Al-Batti expressed the intention of the Iraqi government to get the services of these health professionals.
“They want as many nurses as we can give them. But the problem is the hostile situation there. There is a ban there and the only thing we want also to be sure of is the safety of workers. We want to make sure that they are safe,” he said.
Except for the Kurdistan region, a deployment ban is in effect in Iraq.
The ban was imposed following the kidnapping by Iraqi rebels of Filipino worker Angelo de la Cruz in July 2004.
The kidnappers had demanded the pullout of Philippine troops from Iraq.
The government yielded to the demand, which resulted in the safe release of De la Cruz on July 21, 2004.
Meanwhile, Rustico Jimenez, president of the Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines, said there are also demands for healthcare professionals in India.
“For the past two years, every time there is a meeting of all hospitals all over Asia, they (Indian hospital officials) would ask me for 200,000 nurses and other healthcare workers,” Jimenez said, adding that during a recent seminar on Hospital Management Asia in Vietnam, he was again reminded of this.
Aside from doctors and nurses, medical technologists, radio technicians and pulmonology physical therapists are also in demand in India.
Jimenez said he had already informed nurses’ organizations of the job opportunities but there were no takers.
Ona said the government is doing its best to improve the benefits and working conditions of healthcare workers so they would not be lured into working in foreign hospitals.
“We really have to make our health system robust and to do that, our Philippine Health Insurance System must also be robust,” the health chief said.

Toronto job scam targets Filipino nurses — Consul

The Philippine Consulate in Toronto, Canada warned on Thursday Filipino nurses against offers for non-existing jobs and asking them to pay fees for “coaching interviews” and seminars as a prelude to employment.
Consul General Junever Mahilum-West described as a scam the alleged job offers from Toronto hospitals, including the Shouldice Hospital, in which the applicants were asked to pay P3,888 for “coaching interviews” in the Canadian Embassy in Manila as a prelude to a two-day seminar.
Shouldice Hospital in Toronto has denied making any job offers, Mahilum-West said.
She said Shouldice Hospital has received about 100 e-mails and telephone inquiries about the coaching interviews that would lead to employment in its hospital in Thornhill, Ontario, which is not true.
An alliance of migrant organizations said the unemployment problem in the Philippines has turned from bad to worse and
government announcement of a plan to stop forced migration of Filipino workers within five years is a sham.
Migrante International said results of a survey by the Social Weather Station last August showed that the unemployment rate had increased to 29.4 percent in the third quarter of 2012 compared to 26.6 percent in May this year.
“The plan of the Aquino administration to stop peddling Filipino workers abroad within five years is wishful thinking in the face of worsening unemployment in the country,” said John Leonard Monterona, Migrante Middle East regional coordinator.
Migrante disputed the claims by the Labor Department that the unemployment problem in the Philippines was due to a job mismatch.
Monterona said about 4,200 Filipinos were leaving daily to look for jobs abroad compared with just 3,200 two years ago.
“The number of Filipinos forced to leave the country will increase to around 3 to 5 percent from the current base figure of 4,200 daily in two to three years time,” Monterona said.
He said the survey results were “a slap on the face of Aquino and his labor honchos.’’ With Sara Fabunan

'Obamacare' may perk up US demand for Pinoy nurses

MANILA, Philippines - The new US Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or “Obamacare” could possibly help revive America’s demand for Filipino nurses, a lawmaker said yesterday.
LPGMA party-list Rep. Arnel Ty, author of a bill that seeks to increase local employment opportunities for idle Filipino nurses estimated at 300,000, said Obamacare may perk up US demand for foreign nurses.
He said Obamacare will increase by around 10 percent the number of Americans seeking health care.
“This will hopefully spur a bit US demand for new foreign nurses and other health practitioners such as pharmacists, physical therapists, medical technologists, radiologists, and speech pathologists,” Ty said.
Sustained by the US Supreme Court recently, Obamacare will provide health insurance to all Americans who are not currently protected against the risk of incurring medical expenses.
The lawmaker said some 30 million Americans are expected to enjoy access to hospitalization and treatment as well as diagnostic and outpatient services on account of the new US law.
He said for decades, the Philippines has been America’s top supplier of nurses, followed by India, Canada, South Korea, Puerto Rico, Nigeria and Cuba.
However, US hiring of Filipino and other foreign-educated nurses has slowed down since 2010 as a result of steep cutbacks in federal, state and local government subsidies to hospitals and nursing homes, Ty said.
Due to persistent corporate layoffs, the lawmaker said that fewer Americans are enjoying employer-sponsored health insurance.
The US has been producing more nurses on its own. From January to September this year, America produced 156,130 new nursing graduates.

Pinoy nurses seeking US jobs drop
Meanwhile, the number of Filipino nurses seeking to practice in America by taking the US licensure examinations continues to drop.
Citing data from the US National Council of State Boards of Nursing Inc., Ty said only 2,662 Filipino nurses (excluding repeaters) took the NCLEX for the first time from January to September this year.
The number is 39 percent lower compared to the 4,354 Filipino nurses who took the NCLEX in the same period in 2011.
A total of 147,743 Filipino nurses have taken the NCLEX since 1995, without counting repeaters.
