Resource Spotlight: Health Worker Flight from Sub-Saharan Africa: Patterns, Implications & Mitigating Strategies
The HRH Global Resource Center has recently begun including presentations on HRH topics in the collection. This presentation, "Health Worker Flight from Sub-Saharan Africa: Patterns, Implications & Mitigating Strategies," was given at the 2006 Association of American Medical Colleges' Physician Workforce Research Conference, "2020 Vision: Focusing on the Future." It discusses out-migration and brain drain from sub-Saharan Africa and gives an overview of the issues related to this problem. The presentation offers statistics on the number of health workers, charts representing the deployment of health workers worldwide and pictures of the project to create registries of licensed health personnel in Uganda.
