‘Brain drain’ hits the health sector

Government is facing calls to latest concerns of brain drain amid revelations that the National Organization for Nurses and Midwifery has been securing jobs for unemployed nurses outside Malawi.

The move comes amid figures that show that over three thousand registered nurses and midwives have not been offered jobs after completing their respective studies and council examinations.

However, George Jobe, an eminent health rights campaigner has said the decision means that the country will continue to poor human resources of health personnel.

He has since said the plans expose the fact that the profession is not having so many job opportunities, a thing which he believes must be addressed immediately by government for improved health service delivery.
