This is a map of Serbia by districts (NUTS3 level) showing the total number of general practitioners per 100,000 population over 20 years old in 2020, colour coded from lights green (from less than 40) to dark green (to over 80).
This indicator shows the physical availability of general practitioners to the population in the specific district, as one of the potential indicators of medical desertification, and might become part of the index for medical desertification which will be formulated through research activities, between October 2021 and May 2022.
The districts with the lowest number of general practitioners per 100,000 population over 20 years old are Toplički, Kolubarski, Mačvanski, Borski, Moravički, and Podunavski. The number of general practitioners per 100,000 population over 20 years old in these districts ranges from 34 to 39.
Eventually, a mouse-over or clicking on a district will also present additional information about that district, such as the size of the population, it’s demographic composition or the percentage of unmet health needs. Also, information from our in-country research will be included as we go along.
