Africa Losing Nurses to Britain (3)
The furore on this issue appears unending but I am yet to hear
the right briefing by those in government in these countries.
Rather, people are saying things about restricting this movement
without addressing the direct cause. I am a healthcare worker
who has always professed a preference for working in the conti-
nent - either in my country or elsewhere. However, when you con-
sider the economics, job satisfaction versus every individuals
assessment of present achievement and vision of career goals and
overall placement in life in the future, practice overseas still
remains an option even for me.
The various governments owe their healthworkers better pay, bet-
ter working conditions and a strong national economy otherwise,
I think they should all shut up.
