An initiative of DOLE, in collaboration with BON-PRC, DOH, PNA, UPCN, OHNAP and other government and non-government entities to promote nurse entrepreneurship by introducing a home health care industry in the Philippines:
1) to reduce the cost of health care for the country’s indigent population by bringing primary health care services to poor rural communities,
2) to maximize employment opportunities for the country’s unemployed nurses and
3) to utilize the country’s unemployed human resources for health for the delivery of public health services and the achievement of the country’s Millennium Development Goals on maternal and child health, consistent with the Fourmula One for Health framework of the Department of Health.
