Out of Africa (Issue 379)
June 2005
Issue: 
379

This month the *NI* goes to Kenya in the company of nurse Nancy Wambui Thuku, one of the three million health workers from the Majority World who are currently staffing the rich world's hospitals and nursing homes. She shows us why she decided to leave her homeland to work abroad and what effect this has on her and her family. But she also ponders the effect on her country of losing key health workers by the thousand.
