New England Journal Loves Zimbabwe

The NEJM has a nice paper article on health care in Africa, specifically telling us about a wonderful HIV program that has doctors only seeing the worse cases, and routine cases seen by nurses etc.

Well, bust my buttons. We were doing that thirty years ago.

There is also a paragraph discussing Haiti. The last time I looked, Haiti was in the Carribean, but hey, all black people look alike, y'know...

But my favorite line is:
Zimbabwe, for example, "has doubled or tripled enrollment in medical schools," according to Friedman, "but they haven't increased the number of professors. This is probably going to lead to lower quality."
