Abstract:

"The health services of the richer countries are hugely dependent on nurses and doctors from developing countries, attracted by better salaries and the higher standard of living. For over 40 years, there's been a trickle of Ghanaian nurses to the English-speaking developed world. One widely quoted source says almost two thousand nurses left the country between 1995-2002. Life goes to Ghana with Lydia, a Ghanaian nurse working in the UK, to see what the 'push' problems are, and find out what would make Lydia return to her homeland."--Container.
