Although the number of government doctors in Gujarat is very low compared to the existing and current population, the government has now put all the doctors in the service of corona virus treatment. According to the statistics of the State Medical Council, the number of registered doctors is 66944, which is only 5.77% compared to the total number of doctors in the country. There should be one doctor per 1000 population in Gujarat but that proportion is not maintained. There is also a dearth of medical staff in the rural areas of the state. Super specialists are not currently available in health centers. There is also a shortage of health workers. There are also 2287 nurses in the state health centers and hospitals. At present, the government is hiring only 16500 doctors.
Gujarat’s Public Healthcare Infrastructure needs three super specialty facilities. There are 22 medical colleges. There are 22 district hospitals. There are 33 sub-district hospitals and 117 grant-in-aid hospitals. The state has 351 CHC and 1393 PHC. There are 307 Urban Health Centers and 9156 Sub Centers. The important thing is that in the health centers and hospitals of Gujarat, an average of 250 million outdoor and 21 lakh patients are being provided indoor treatment during the year. Health centers in the district, which are mostly in the rural areas, lack doctors and medical staff but other hospitals have to monitor staff appointments. At present, 2800 rooms have been reserved for coronas in most hospitals and 75% of doctors have been put in service.
All these health centers and hospitals are divided into six zones. These six zones include Gandhinagar, Ahmedabad, Bhavnagar, Rajkot, Vadodara and Surat. There are also 33 mobile health units in the state. All of these have been set up to fight the corona virus. Besides, there are 41 Ayurvedic hospitals including Grant in Aid 2. Gujarat has 559 Ayurvedic dispensaries, 500 licensed pharmacies, 18 Homeopathy hospitals and 219 Homeopathy dispensaries. Gujarat has wide health facilities but the biggest problem is lack of adequate staff.
