I think it is not that difficult enough to administer intradermal injections here in the third world countries because performing so is not just limited to PPD testing.

However, the main concern of more balikbayans is access to hospitals in emergency situations. To fully convince more retirees to stay for good in the Philippines, our horrible traffic situation needs to be addressed too. Neglecti...
