Increasing immigration of highly skilled workers into OECD countries over the past 10‐ 15 years, often from developing countries, has refuelled fears of a "brain drain" from developing countries of much of their skilled labour, to the profit of OECD countries. This concern has been loudest in recent years concerning the recruitment of foreign doctors and nurses by OECD countries, and with ageing populations in OECD countries driving up the demand for health professionals, there are real fears that the health care sector in many developing countries could be severely damaged by the medical "brain drain".
