The PMHN Logo

The heart (in Philippine flag colors) symbolizes broader healthcare commitment in promoting the welfare of and shaping the future of the health of migrants. It shows the partnership and collaboration of the stakeholders: government, international organizations, civil society partners, migrants and other stakeholders, in promoting the health and welfare of migrants and their families.

The globe represents the countries where human resources are needed, and the 4 people symbolizes the different human resources both professional and non-professional that the Philippines has and is employed in the different parts of the world.

This is a product of integrating the three logo study designs which embody the unity and oneness of the network in the protection and promotion of the health of migrants and Filipinos overseas through the collective efforts of different stakeholders such as different government agencies, civil society and non-government organizations, academe, private sectors and international health partners.
