A picture of health by 7.4 Limited

“We explore the relationship between life expectancy, access to doctors, and wealth. Overall the picture is that typically, wealthier nations have more doctors per person and a longer life expectancy than poorer countries. But it is by no means a perfect correlation: increasing doctor numbers above 2–3 per 1000 people appears to have little impact on lifespan. Conversely, there’s a wide variation in life expectancy among those countries with fewer than one doctor per 10 000 people.”
