Title The Migration of Health Professionals
Author Lawrence B. Dacuycuy

In an attempt to append a minor contribution to the literature of health and migration, this study focuses on three important, yet related issues involved in the assessment of the effects of emigration of health professionals. First, in a model adopted from Clemens (2007), the link between health outcomes/ basic healthcare services can be statistically established. In this study, results are in general agreement with the contention that other factors aside from emigration may matter. Hence, emigration is not the only cause of degradation in healthcare delivery systems. Second, emigration is not a random event, rather, it is determined by certain factors present in destination and source/origin countries.
