Physician supply

Physician supply refers to the number of trained physicians working in a health care system or active in the labour market. The supply depends primarily on the number of graduates of medical schools in a country or jurisdiction, but also on the number who continue to practice medicine as a career path and who remain in their country of origin. The number of physicians needed in a given context depends on several different factors, including the demographics and epidemiology of the local population, the numbers and types of other health care practitioners working in the system, as well as the policies and goals in place of the health care system. If more physicians are trained than needed, then supply exceeds demand; if too few physicians are trained and retained, then some people may have difficulty accessing health care services. A physician shortage is a situation in which there are not enough physicians to treat all patients in need of medical care. This can be observed at the level of a given health care facility, a province/state, a country, or worldwide.
Globally, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates a shortage of 4.3 million physicians, nurses and other health workers worldwide, especially in many developing countries. Developing nations often have physician shortages due to limited numbers and capacity of medical schools and because of international migration: physicians can usually earn much more money and enjoy better working conditions in other countries. Many developed countries also report doctor shortages, especially in rural and other underserved areas. For example, shortages are being discussed in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and Germany.

Vorteile einer Beschneidung/Zirkumzision

Eine Beschneidung bringt zahlreiche Vorteile mit sich:

  • Laut einer australischen Untersuchung ist bei beschnittener Vorhaut die Gefahr, sich mit HIV zu infizieren, signifikant geringer.
  • Dies gilt auch für Peniskrebs, da hier der bedeutendste Risikofaktor in der nicht erfolgten Beschneidung liegt.
  • Auch die Genitalhygiene ist bei beschnittenen Männern einfacher und effektiver durchzuführen. Dadurch sinkt das Risiko für Harnwegsinfektionen und somit auch das Risiko, bleibende Nierenschäden durch aufsteigende Infektionen zu bekommen. Aufgrund dieser zahlreichen medizinischen Vorteile wird die Beschneidung von der Weltgesundheitsorganisation auch sehr empfohlen.
  • Außerdem beeinträchtigt die Beschneidung weder die Potenz noch die sexuelle Erregbarkeit. Im Gegenteil, manche Männer berichten von intensiveren Orgasmen und größerer Ausdauer, weil ihre Eichel unempfindlicher ist.
