DOH speaks out on the delayed salary of RN HEALS Nurses

DOH Statement Regarding the Delayed Stipend of Nurses under the RN HEALS Program

Assistant Secretary Enrique Tayag today assured that the nurses deployed under the Department of Health’s Registered Nurses for Health Enhancement and Local Service (RN Heals) will receive their stipends within this week.

Tayag explained that the DOH has fast-tracked the requirements necessary for the release of the funds earmarked for RN Heals. He also apologized to the RN Heals nurses for their delayed monthly stipend and guaranteed them that for the succeeding months, they shall be paid on time.

RN Heals seeks to make essential health services available to all Filipinos by training and deploying 10,000 unemployed nurses in communities identified by the DOH in collaboration with the Department of Social Welfare & Development (DSWD).

While on deployment, the nurses will be given an allowance of P8,000 a month by the DOH while the local government unit (LGU) where they are assigned shall supervise them, ensure their safety and security, and provide modest board and lodging. Likewise, LGUs were encouraged to provide additional allowances and benefits worth at least P2,000 for these nurses.
