Abstract: In The Netherlands, one doctor is available for 317 persons, while in Kenya there is only one doctor for more than 7,000 persons. What is more, many doctors leave this African country and migrate to the rich Western world as soon as they have finished their studies. Wemos Foundation is concerned about the consequences of migration for the health of millions of people. In this article, Anke Tijtsma, Project Coordinator Human Resources for Health at Wemos, the Netherlands, answers ten questions about health workers in developing countries.
