Unequal distribution of medical specialists throughout Bali

Karangasem, one of the poorest regencies in Bali, has only 100 general practitioners and specialists, whereas the capital city Denpasar has far more physicians than it actually needs, a fact that underlines the uneven distribution of medical professionals on the resort island.

The island has a sufficient number of doctors, but the distribution of the doctors is very poor. There are around 6,800 physicians and specialists in Bali, 40 percent of whom practice in Denpasar. The regency that has the lowest number of physicians is Karangasem.
