Adopt a Doctor: Program Overview

Adopt a Doctor: Program Overview: "Adopt A Doctor is a New England-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization seeking to reverse the brain drain that is drawing experienced physicians away from the poorest countries in the world.

Many of the world's poorest countries are finding it difficult to attract and retain experienced physicians because salaries are so low. In Malawi, for example, a doctor earns on average just $70 USD per month and thus practices medicine in the country for an average of only 3 years. Physicians are leaving developing nations such as Malawi in droves to seek more reasonable pay and better resources in other parts of the world.

Adopt A Doctor aspires to solve this problem of high turnover rates and unavailability of experienced physicians by providing financial aid and other critical resources to physicians already working in these poor countries so that they can continue to work there. "
