In our country there is a shortage of Physical therapist(PT) that are also important to the health care of the society and the muslim community. A public official said “While the top killers in the country are non-communicable diseases like cancer and stroke that would require rehabilitation from skilled physical therapists and occupational therapists, we don’t have enough of them, said professor Marilyn Lorenzo of the UP-Manila College of Public Health,the country only has around 1,000 PT and 200 OT graduates per year. She added that many hospitals nationwide, including those in Metro Manila, do not have plantilla positions for physical therapists and occupational therapists, prompting graduates to seek employment abroad. Lorenzo said the countrys health care system faces a big problem because of the unmanaged migration. She cited infant and maternal mortalities in at least three regions Bicol, Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and Eastern Visayas due to lack of health care workers.” in this situation is it now a communual obligation to the muslim in this country to produce enough PT’s for the service of the muslim community?
