Unscramble the Blue Letters

Yet the Haitian story also illustrates some of the bigger problems faced in many cinuteros. Take a look: 748 Haitian gaduarets by 2012, when cohlera struck, nearly half working in the public health sector but one qearutr unemployed, and 110 had left Haiti altogether. So in the best case scenarios, these graduates are sinffatg and thus strengthening public health systems, where often they're the only doctors around. In the wosrt cases, there are simply not enough jobs in the public health scteor, where most poor people are treated, not enough ptolaicil will, not enough resources, not enough anything — just too many patients with no care. The grads face pressure from their fliiemas too, desperate to make ends meet, so when there are no public sector jobs, these new MDs decamp into private practice, or go abroad to send money home.

Original Text

Yet the Haitian story also illustrates some of the bigger problems faced in many countries. Take a look: 748 Haitian graduates by 2012, when cholera struck, nearly half working in the public health sector but one quarter unemployed, and 110 had left Haiti altogether. So in the best case scenarios, these graduates are staffing and thus strengthening public health systems, where often they're the only doctors around. In the worst cases, there are simply not enough jobs in the public health sector, where most poor people are treated, not enough political will, not enough resources, not enough anything — just too many patients with no care. The grads face pressure from their families too, desperate to make ends meet, so when there are no public sector jobs, these new MDs decamp into private practice, or go abroad to send money home.
