Vital foreign-qualified doctors face xenophobia
This emerged during a discussion at the 15th annual conference of the Rural Doctors Association of Southern Africa, RuDASA, entitled, ‘Foreign Qualified Doctors; an essential and globally mobile resource – Perspectives from healthcare workers and stakeholders in rural settings’. Held in the picturesque and historic mountain village of Rhodes in the Eastern Cape from 8th – 10th September, the conference attracted public sector doctors from across South Africa and neighbouring countries to focus on the theme; ‘Making Primary Health Care Better’.
