It seeks to empower health workers to make informed decisions and raise awareness of the issues related to return and reintegration. This guide does not provide detailed information or advice but indicates the areas requiring further research and reflection by the individual.
This booklet focuses on information needed by migrant health workers in order to prepare and successfully reintegrate when they return to the Philippines. Information is key to having a positive overall migration experience. Awareness of existing social services and support mechanisms is important for a smooth reintegration in the home country. Family plays an important role in the successful reintegration of migrant workers and thus, some of the information here is intended for their spouses and other family members.
This return and reintegration booklet is part of a series of migration information materials developed for Filipino and Indian health workers under the ILO’s Decent Work Across Borders (DWAB) project.
