The Brain Drain of Health Professionals from Sub-Saharan Africa to Canada

edited by Jonathan Crush

One of the critical challenges facing Africa is how to harness the potential of internal and international migration in the interests of development. The Southern African Migration Project (SAMP) is an international network of organizations founded in 1996 to promote awareness of migration-development linkages in SADC. SAMP conducts applied research on migration and development issues, provides policy advice and expertise, offers training in migration policy and management, and conducts public education campaigns on migration-related issues.

The Brain Drain of Health Professionals from Sub-Saharan Africa to Canada, No 2 in the African Migration and Development Series, attempts to answer the question "how" the brain drain can be reduced, acknowledging that it can best be done through concerted efforts from both sides -Sub-Saharan African countries and Canada.
