NDP is part of Human Resource for Health Deployment Programs (HRHDP) of DOH where health professionals are hired and deployed to rural health units, birthing centers, and barangay health stations. DOH is also proposing to open polyclinics next year. A total of P9.7 billion is intended for implementation of HRHDP 2018, a 24.4% budget increase compared to this year.

Under the program, 25,000 health workers are to be deployed and the bulk of it will be nurses. DOH intends to hire 20,527 nurses under the NDP 2018, and nurses will also be used to fill in family health associate (FHA) and universal healthcare implementer (UHCI) positions.

Some 446 doctors, 3,108 midwives, and 324 dentists will also be hired, among other health workers.

DOH announces that recruitment and selection of qualified applicants will be from October to December 2017, and the process includes qualifying exam given by respective DOH regional offices. Those who will be accepted will be deployed from January 2 to December 31, 2018.

Aside from the overall guidelines issued by DOH Central Office, Regional Offices (who will handle the recruitment and selection of health workers in their areas) also issues details on procedures, qualifying exam, interview, etc.

For Regional Offices which don’t have announced update yet, you may follow the guidelines issued by DOH central office and bring application form and requirements to your respective regional offices.

We will also post updates about the salary of each deployment programs once available, but former health secretary Paulyn Ubial hinted that it will be higher since the 3rd tranche of Salary Standardization Law will be implemented in 2018.

Nurses will get around P29,000 and doctors will earn around P70,000 next year, she added.
