In his article "How The Brain Drain To The West Worsens Africa's Public Health Crisis" Rotimi Sankore documents very well the devastating effect of the "brain drain" on Africa's health services, and the appalling cost to the continent of subsidising health services in rich countries. However, there is one measure which would address this problem very effectively, but which is rarely proposed, even though it is the key to Cuba's success in maintaining its high standards of health and more

I would like to thank you for a fine job - in difficult times. As all of us grow increasingly concerned about the more and more desperate situation that so many fellow Africans are facing, it is immensely helpful to have such a valuable source of information, and it keeps up our spirits to see and be linked with so many people who are struggling fiercely to turn things around. Thanks to the Pambazuka team.
