Detrimental to developing countries

How do you think the movement of professionals impact the impact of the process of
globalization generally and outsourcing more particularly in the health care sector? One of
the asepects of my global health work and outreach is to help provide medical education in
Armenia in Armenian language, to make it more accessible and to incentivize professionals
to remain and practice in their regions. Do you think this is an effective approach? What
other suggestions would you make to address this issue? Please support your answers.

Hi Wright,
I concur with your argument that the Globalization of health workers or professionals is
likely to be more detrimental to developing countries (L. & Je, 2012). Nevertheless, it is in the
public domain that Armenia battles for health care and therapy. They have tried private financing
from people’s pockets. Still, all in vain since Globalization of health graduates has affected the
health care of the country. In previous years, Armenia enjoyed the best health care systems
among the Soviet republics. This system has failed terribly due to the movement of qualified
healthcare professionals to more developed countries.
On the contrary, Armenia has started redressing the problem by introducing substantial
healthcare reforms such as management of chronic diseases and preventive care, among others.
Improvement of salaries to health professionals and graduates has been given the center stage.
Therefore, I agree with you that, unless countries improve their health care systems, the
Globalization of health professionals will continue, and developing countries will remain to
