Human Resources in Health in man-made poor nation, Nepal

In Nepal, for 26.6 million population we've total 12,194 doctors as per the Medical Council or 2010.

Of the 12,194 Nepali doctors registered, 2000 were consultants and specialists and rest are MBBS graudates. 

The greatest number of specialists is in the areas of obstetrics and gynaecology (237), general surgery (232), followed by internal medicine (195), and paediatrics (182). One third of all the specialists registered are female, with the majority in the areas of obstetrics and gynaecology and paediatrics.

As per the Nepal Nursing Council (as of July 2011) Nepal has 16,299 Nurses and Auxilliary Nurse-Midwife (ANM) 17,424, which means in total we've 33,733 nursing professionals. ANM has only TSLC level education therefore, they are considered assistant of nurses. 

As per the Nepal Health Professional Council 2011 (as of July 2011), we've total 42,473 healthcare professionals. Of these, only 1,619 has bachelor or above education, 4,232 has PCL level education and huge mass 36,622 has TSLC level education. 

In Ayurveda we've only 6 bachelor or above educated professional. Huge mass 1,046 has obtained only TSLC level education. 

Interestingly, some Nepalese are proud to be a YOGI but we've only 8 Yogi who had obtained Bachelor or above degrees. 

It is my great pleasure weve 7 Naturopathy in Nepal who had obtained Bachelor or above education.

In Nepal, we only have 54 professional health educationists, which are the most required professional in promoting health of population. Very sad and bad in the whole nation we only have 2 clinical psychologist and 5 speech and hearing therapist.

In rural Nepal, where 83% of people live our people get healthcare services from TSLC level healthcare professionals. This suggests that rural and man-made poor are always receiver of left over things of Uran and rich people.
