Yakutia authorities deny reduction in number of doctors
The head of Yakutia denies a reduction in the number of medical workers in the republic by 17,2%. Such data had previously been cited by the Russian Ministry of Health. The department said that the number of doctors has decreased in 55 regions.
According to Aisen Nikolaev, in Yakutia, on the contrary, the number of doctors is growing. Voiced numbers he associated with a technical publication error. In addition, he recalled that Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova put the republic in fifth place in the country for the provision of doctors in primary health care. The region also ranks first in the Far Eastern Federal District by this indicator.
According to the Republican Ministry of Health, by October 1 of October 2019, the staffing of doctors with full-time positions reached 76,7%. In 2017, this indicator was 75,1%, writes Interfax.
Earlier information on the reduction of doctors by 59% in one year refuted in the Ministry of Health of Buryatia. The ministry said it would soon submit a report on the real state of personnel to the federal center.
