What's wrong with the global migration of health care professionals? Individual rights and international justice
Hastings Center Report 37 (5):36-43 (2007)
Abstract: When health care workers migrate from poor countries to rich countries, they are exercising an important human right and helping rich countries fulfill obligations of social justice. They are also, however, creating problems of social justice in the countries they leave. Solving these problems requires balancing social needs against individual rights and studying the relationship of social justice to international justice.
