The COVID-19 pandemic has seen developed countries relax migration procedures for health workers seeking new work opportunities elsewhere. Our letter outlines the risks of health workers outward migration to the HIV & TB program in Zimbabwe, a country with one of the worst morbidity and mortality by these two diseases in the world. We discuss the recent legal changes in immigration in the United Kingdom (UK) to facilitate easier movement of appropriate trained and experienced health professionals to relocate to that country. Additionally, we discuss key issues health workers in Zimbabwe face on a daily basis and why the UK is a natural fertile ground for their migration.
