Abstract [en]

In a recent paper, Mpofu, Gupta, and Hays attempt to outline the obligations of recruiting high income countries (HICs) and would-be emigrant health workers (HWs) to tackle the effects of mass exodus of health workers from underserved regions. They reconstruct (i) Rawlsian and Kantian global justice approaches to argue for moral obligations of HICs and (ii) an individual justice approach to point to 'non-enforceable' social responsibilities of HWs to assist their compatriots. This critical paper demonstrates that the argumentation within their individual justice approach is problematic on the basis of three reasons: (1) their discussion under-theorizes and undervalues the individual rights and more specifically the right to exit, (2) their argumentation in the latter part, even if problematically, does rather point to moral obligations in lieu of 'social responsibilities' of HWs, and (3) they overlook many other important freedoms, interests and values pertinent to the issue of retention.
