DOH HRH Deployment Programs 2018 Updates in Region 6

Secretary Paulyn Jean Ubial recently announced that the Department of Health (DOH) will once again hire health workers under the Human Resource for Health (HRH) Deployment Programs for 2018, and the Regional Office 6 issued an advisory about the opportunity.

DOH has designed the HRH Deployment Programs to improve health systems in grassroots levels that will support the country’s attainment of All for Health towards Health for All.

The program will hire health professionals for deployment in the region prioritizing identified municipalities of the National Anti – Poverty Commission (NAPC), the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s (DSWD) Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) or Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) areas, areas with Indigenous People Groups (IPs) and the Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Areas (GIDA) of Western Visayas.

A lot of healthcare professionals, especially nurses, are really interested in the program especially after Secretary Ubial said in an interview that they will be deploying around 25,000 workers (22,000 are nurses) around the country next year, on a higher salary rate due to third tranche of Salary Standardization Law. Nurses will receive P29,000 monthly, according to Ubial.

To nurses, doctors, dentists, midwives, medical technologists, and other allied health professionals in the Western Visayas, here’s the latest advisory on HRH 2018 from DOH Regional Office 6:


Online submission of Aplication for Human Resource for Health under the 2018 DOH Deployment Programs shall commence on the 3rd – 4th week of October 2017. Requirements and application procedure shall be posted thru the DOH Regional Office VI website: as soon as the deployment guidelines/advisory are released.
