Migration of Health Workers from Nepal
PDF File Size: 2.16 MB | Download   
There are many factors, both push factors and pull factors that are responsible for the migration of the health workers mostly from the development countries. Nepal experiences inequitable distribution and migration of health workers leading to critical shortage of health workers in most part of the country. This leaves the health worker-to-population ratio at 0.67 doctors and nurses per 1,000 individuals, which is significantly lower than the World Health Organization’s recommendation of 2.3 doctors, nurses and midwives per 1,000 individuals.
The study on the Migration of Health Workers from Nepal was commissioned under the International Labour Organization’s European Union-funded South Asia Labour
Migration Governance project, the study was conducted by the Centre for the Study of Labour and Mobility(CESLAM) at the Social Science Baha. According to the findings of the study,the human resource system for health workers in Nepal is characterized by a peculiar condition. There is no balance between the supply of the doctors and nurses and the health workers' ratio to the population mostly because of international migration of the health workers. The report of the study consists of various facts and figures and related to the international migration of the health workers from Nepal.
