Prioritize your Health, OFWs

If asked to choose between health and wealth, most Filipinos or OFWs will choose the first one. Apparently, this will be the obvious answer so as not to cause a stir and think of someone as money-minded.

Health, in every aspect should be the priority for everyone, especially OFWs who are working abroad. OFWs sacrifice everything just to provide better future for their family by overseas jobs. And most of the OFWs, though they’ve experienced bad experiences from foreign employers abroad, still decide to look for overseas jobs and work abroad again. This decision means taking risk in every aspect by working abroad – health, happiness, family, homesickness etc.

This is why Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) secretary Rosalinda Baldoz reiterated the call for OFWs not to take any risk by applying or entertaining employment or job offers from Ebola-hit countries like Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. She further said that the deployment ban for these countries still exists, and OFWs paper will not be legally processed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA for them to be sent to work abroad.

The announcement was made by DOLE secretary amidst report stating that there was a high demand for healthcare workers for deployment on the West African countries to aid the increasing number of patients with Ebola virus.

The total ban deployment was enforced by POEA last month as part of the preventive measure for OFWs to avoid being infected with deadly Ebola virus disease.

Also, a total deployment ban was imposed for newly-hired OFWs last July when the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) issued crisis alert level 2 on the three countries because of Ebola virus spreading.

This total deployment ban ordered by POEA includes the processing and deployment of returning OFWs even if they have existing employment contract in the Ebola-hit countries.

Filipinos, especially OFWs, should heed the call not to apply for overseas jobs in the West African countries greatly affected by the Ebola virus. You all have one goal, to earn much money for the family, but it would be useful if you’ll be infected by this alarming deadly disease that had claimed thousands of lives.

Medical exam needed before Pinoys Can Go Abroad

A pre-employment medical examination is one of the many requirements before a Filipino can leave the Philippines and work abroad.  POEA said that medical examination is required only after the applicant has been interviewed by the employer, principal or the representative of the recruitment agency and the job offered has a job order from the POEA.


A medical examination would determine if the applicant is healthy enough to go overseas and be employed abroad.  The main objective of this examination is to secure the deployment of healthy Filipino workers or OFWs so that the scenario of repatriation in the future is less likely to happen.  Medical examinations for Filipinos will help identify any health condition that may affect the OFWs ability to perform the job.  If anything is diagnosed, remedies may be taken to avoid recurrence of such problem for any Filipino who wishes to work abroad.

The medical examination for Filipinos or OFWs varies among each principals or hiring country.  But the goal of each medical exam is to evaluate the overall health and well being of the Filipino or OFWs and know ahead any health condition which may increase the risk of complications and injuries when they work abroad.

Normally, a medical exam for an OFW is composed of the physical exam and laboratory test.  This may include:

  • Urinalysis or Fecalysis
  • Chest x-ray
  • Height and weight
  • Vision, which includes acuity and color test
  • Heart
  • Lungs


  • ECG for those 40 years and above, and for those with cardiovascular findings
  • Complete blood count
  • Blood chemistries
  • Dental check-up which may include treatment/ filling or extraction.
  • Pregnancy test for women
  • Special tests like Hepatitis B screening, HIV, Drug test and more.

If there are no abnormal findings during the exam, the applicant will be cleared for deployment overseas.  The doctor will sign a form stating that the Filipino or OFW is fit for employment and can work abroad.
