  1. For work on highly communicable diseases like eBola, AIDS, Malaria in Africa, or Central and South America, Malakanyang should write an executive order to prevent Pinoys and Pinays to work for Mercy Corps, Save the Children, Caritas or any international health organization. MercyCorps and Save the Children can send health workers workers to Pilipinas when Pilipinas needs help, but Pinoys and pinays should not take risks that can spread the disease in Pilipinas barangays.
