Medical suppliesMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Thailand is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 2.1 hospital beds per 1000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 56,600 physicians in Thailand, there are about 0.81 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1000 inhabitants and in the EU even 3.57.
Due to the low level of care, the mortality of major known diseases can only be reduced in comparatively few cases. According to current information, about 14 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) still die.
