Skilled migrant workers in the Philippines

Assessment of the existing services for skilled migrant workers in the Philippines

The report covered a wide range of services provided by state and non-state institutions, from pre-departure training to return and reintegration in the Philippines. It also offered a rich collection of information on the mandate of all state institutions providing services, as well as selected non-state institutions and business enterprises.

In order to protect migrant workers, the International Labour Organization (ILO) aimed to shape policies and programmes in promoting decent work for all ("Promoting Decent work for all," 2004). Through the context of promoting the DWAB Project, the organization specifically aimed to map-out, assess and enhance existing services for migrant workers and returned migrants, with a special focused on health care professionals.
