Introduction to Discussion
The WHO reports that the world will be short of 12.9 million healthcare workers by
2035 if the issue is not addressed now. Available statistics show that over 40% of
WHO member states report fewer than 10 medical doctors per 10,000 population, and
over 26% report to have fewer than three medical doctors per 10,000.
