Medical suppliesThe medical care provided by doctors and hospitals in the Federated States of Micronesia is above average, but is not as good as the average within the EU. The country provides 3.2 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 20 physicians in Micronesia, there are about 0.18 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.
Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 46 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
