The article reports on the Michael Clemens' opposition on the ban of physician and nurse recruitment in Africa. Clemens provides several reasons for his opposition on the ban of nurse recruitment which includes the security and safety incentives in leaving Africa. He also argues that there is a link between the number of African doctors who leave the country and the number of doctors working within Africa. Clemens also suggests World Health Organization Assistant Director General Tim Evans to permit more health professionals to emigrate to ease the insufficient nurses in new medical programs.
