The Health Care Drain (2003)

Only available in United States

People in poorer, Southern Hemisphere countries migrate towards the richer, Northern Hemisphere countries, depriving these nations of their doctors and nurses. This one-way transfusion can be seen, for example, in movements from Malawi to South Africa and then on to Europe; leaving a vacuum in the poorest countries. Can nothing be done? Perhaps.

I like that the poor countries graduate good doctors, but it is to bad that most leave for more money leaving behind many who need them. I hope more will take care of their own.
