Morocco counts 9 medics for each 10,000 inhabitants, a ratio that is inferior by one half compared to other west Mediterranean countries.
In a release published this Monday on the occasion of the international nurses day, the health minister deplores “an acute shortage” of medics with a total of 30,000 nurses being well below the needs.
The department says it has taken a series of measures to address the shortage, including maintaining the training of 3,000 medics annually, recruiting more nurses and turning medics training centers into higher education institutions.
