This is a map of Serbia by districts (NUTS3 level) showing the total number of nurses-health technicians (including/excluding midwives?) per 100,000 population in 2019, colour coded from light blue (from less than 400) to dark blue (to over 650).

This indicator shows the physical availability of nurses-health technicians 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 nurses-health technicians per 100,000 population are Sremski, Zapadnobački, Moravički, Severnobački, Podunavski, and Rasinski. The number of nurses-health technicians per 100,000 population in these districts ranges from 358 to 556.

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.
