The international recruitment of health personnel appears to be lately an usual practice for some countries to cover their needs in health care. That is possible due to income differences between countries that motivate physicians to migrate. Now this is an unavoidable fact, but the resulting ethical problems cannot be ignored, like the unbalance in the developing countries healthcare systems by losing physicians. The whole practice became morally questionable with international ongoing efforts to solve it one as the recruitments codes. We will to discuss the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel from an original perspective inspired from Rawls theory of justice. The rawlsian principles we will focus on are: a. the veil of ignorance, b. the maximin strategy. With this, we offer a better look inside the code and the practice it tries to regulate.
