Philippines

Health care in the Philippines varies from high class, to non-existent . Most of the national burden of health care is taken up by private health providers.

Medical practitioners, nurses, nursing aides, midwives, caregivers, and health administrators, can all train for their profession in the Philippines. However, most cannot practice outside the Philippines without additional formal study and practical training, usually in the country they choose to migrate to.

The proposed National Health Budget for 2010 is P28 billion, about US$597 million, or about 310 pesos (US$7) per person in the Philippines.
