This is a map of Serbia by districts (NUTS3 level) showing the total number of pediatricians per 100,000 population from 0 to 19 years old in 2020, colour coded from dark purple (from less than 70) to dark green (to over 150).
This indicator shows the physical availability of pediatricians to the population in the specific district, as one of potential indicators of medical desertification, and might become part of the index for medical desertification which will be formulated throughout research activities, between October 2021 and May 2022.
The districts with the lowest number of pediatricians per 100,000 population from 0 to 19 years old are Srednjebanatski, Južnobanatski, Zapadnobački, Severnobački, and Sremski. The number of pediatricians per 100,000 population from 0 to 19 years old in these districts ranges from 60 to 80.
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.
