Why This Matters

The situation is dire on a global scale. According to the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), the world needs seven million more healthcare professionals to meet for a minimum standard of patient care worldwide. 57 countries are at a crisis point, with fewer than 2.3 nurses, doctors and other medical personnel for every 1,000 people – too few to deliver even the most basic level of care. And the gap between number of patients and number of healthcare professionals is poised only to grow.
