National doctors now make up approximately two-thirds of the total number of doctors in the country.
The largest category of national doctors included those working with the Health Department, but not at headquarters or specialist medical officer (SMO) level.
Private practitioners constitute the second largest category, with almost one-fifth of fully registered national doctors.
While postgraduate training programs have been established for clinical and public health specialists, vocational training for general practitioners has been mainly ignored.
Private practitioners represent a considerable, and growing, manpower resource in urban areas, and ways need to be found to utilize their services in the public sector.
