Should Health Workers Be Forced To Stay in Africa?
« on: March 06, 2008, 06:59:04 PM »
The first conference addressing the global shortage of health workers is taking place in Uganda.

Africa has 24% of the world's burden of disease, but only 3% of the world's health workers.

On average, one in four doctors trained in Africa is working in the developed world, according to the World Health Organisation. Medical staff from Africa often migrate to richer countries where pay and conditions are better.

How can Africa retain its healthworkers? If you are a doctor or nurse in Africa, do you consider leaving to work abroad and why? Or if you are overseas, what would make you return?
