According to the recently released figures, released by Union Health Ministry, Gujarat finds itself among the BIMARU states —Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh in terms of a shortfall of doctors, specialists, radiographers and nursing staff in rural areas.
Gujarat currently has a shortfall of 1,140 specialists against the required strength of 1,288 in community health centres. At primary health centres, the state has just 1,105 doctors against the required strength of 1,314. The major reason for this gap is that doctors prefer private practice even though the government has good remuneration. This shortfall may become a big hurdle in coping with health-related issues in the flood-hit areas of the state where there is a strong probability of epidemic.
