The State of Healthcare in the Philippines

The State of Healthcare in the Philippines

Looking at the bigger picture, healthcare in the country is of high standards. Medical professionals in the Philippines are expertly trained. This is why there is high demand even in other countries.

To put things into perspective, the Department of Health (DOH) has an allocated budget of PHP134 billion. This is then divided among the department sub-sectors, such as public health programs, medical assistance and human resources deployment. 

However, medical facilities in the country are not as impressive as they are in high-end American or European hospitals. Private hospitals tend to be better equipped and more consistent than public hospitals. To add to this, there is a clear disparity between medical institutions in urban and rural areas. 

The main reason why hospitals in rural areas are less equipped than their urban counterparts is limited access to medical supplies. It can be challenging for health institutions based in the province to purchase all the tools and equipment they need to give patients the best care. Since the Philippines is an archipelago, it can be hard for rural hospitals to have certain medical supplies delivered to them. 

Due to inefficient procurement tools, hospital staff in rural areas find it difficult to acquire all the medical supplies they need. It is important that hospitals acquire products of excellent quality, and it is taxing to have to check for the quality of the products of various suppliers.
