Description: Southern Africa accounts for up to 33 percent of the global disease burden but relies on only 2.8 percent of the world health workforce. At the same time, the number of migrant health
workers increased by more than 5 percent per year over the last 30 years in many European countries. It is therefore important to understand the current magnitude, patterns, trends and developments of that health worker migration phenomenon and what policies and strategies could be used to address the problem.

For this critical literature review electronic databases were searched as well as the websites of relevant international organizations and philanthropic organizations, yielding
37 articles that were identified for inclusion in the review.
