Philippine Healthcare: Why is it Far From Ideal?

This 6th edition Blog Rounds’ theme attempts to put forward an analysis of a problematic( is it?)healthcare system that has long been tackled, but never successfully addressed. One of the biggest stakeholders in “the solution” to such problem, the doctors may offer some valuable insights in the final analysis of the root cause for such dying health scenario- here in our land!
