Jordan’s Brain Drain?

It is estimated that 100,000 Jordanians are currently working in the Gulf, according to a Jordanian economist. Here’s a story published today on Jordanian doctors who are also leaving the country. Moreover, more than 40 doctors have been assaulted in the past year, according to this article. 

The increasing number of assaults on doctors is threatening to cause a brain drain from the public sector, Abu Fares said, noting that the shortage of doctors at the Kingdom’s public health facilities currently stands at 40 percent.
