But what is most alarming is the fact that 31.4% of these allopathic doctors are educated only up to secondary school level, and 57.3% do not have medical qualification.



 

Further, as many as 73 districts in India do not have any nurses with a medical qualification, and majority of these districts are in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand.

The report also reveals a stark gender divide in the country as only 38% of health workers are female and 62% are male.

But despite being more in number, male doctors are also largely less educated than female doctors.
