Germany Outsourcing Healthcare to the Philippines

Postby saxitoxin on Fri Dec 28, 2012 8:24 am

German authorities are shipping sick old folks to third world hell holes like the Philippines and Greece to keep health care costs down.

Rising numbers of the elderly and sick are moved overseas for long-term care because of sky-high costs at home. And they say the situation should be a warning to Britain, where rising numbers of pensioners are forced to sell their homes to pay for care. Researchers found an estimated 7,146 German pensioners living in retirement homes in Hungary in 2011. More than 3,000 were in the Czech Republic and more than 600 in Slovakia. There were also unknown numbers in Spain, Greece and the Ukraine, as well as Thailand and the Philippines.

Why is it English reporters who are worried about these elderly people rather than their families?
