  1. Distribution of health personnel in the Republic of South Africa with special reference to medical practitioners.

    Article - En anglais

    Data from various sources indicate that there is no shortage of medical practitioners in the RSA.

    This was confirmed in a 1990 survey by the Department of National Health and Population Development.

    The perceived shortage is relative in nature and due to a geographical and functional maldistribution.

    The majority (77%) of medical practitioners reside in metropolitan areas in the RSA; the ratio of doctors to members of the population is 1:696.

    Only 23% of medical practitioners practise in non-metropolitan areas; the calculated ratio is 1:1920.
