Item description for Voting with Their Feet: Migrant Zimbabwean Nurses and Doctors in the Era of Structural Adjustment by Rudo Gaidzanwa...

Most studies of the effects of economic crisis and structural adjustment on the health sector in Africa have concentrated on the impact of cuts in the public health budget. They have also described the introduction of user charges/cost recovery measures, especially for the working poor, to maintain or improve access to modern medical services. Useful insights have been gained from those studies. However, there remains a major gap in the literature on the impact of structural adjustment on the African health sector. This is because the experiences of the medical professionals who work in the sector have been overlooked, despite the fact that sharp cutbacks in the health sector also affects their capacity to carry out their work effectively. This fact, together with the deterioration of their working and living conditions during the adjustment years, has compelled many health workers to rethink their commitment to their professions. The ways in which these professionals have responded to the changing environment of work and livelihood in Zimbabwe since the country adopted an IMF/World Bank structural adjustment program is the focus of this research report. Of particular interest are those doctors and nurses who decided to migrate from Zimbabwe to Botswana and South Africa in search of "greener" pastures.
