Worldwide Doctor - Patient Ratio

The ratio is not constant across the globe. It varies from very high in the underdeveloped countries (sub-Saharan countries) to a bit lower in the economically developing countries, to very low in the developed countries (the UK, Germany, the US, etc). Cuba has the best doctor-to-patient ratio in the world and about ten per cent of its annual spending is on health. Also the ratio depends on the number of medical colleges, infrastructure, government planning, lucrative opportunities following course completion, etc.
