According to the study of the
Curacio International Foundation (CIF) , the number of doctors per capita in
Georgia is 1, 7 times more than the
average in Europe and the former USSR, while the number of nurses is 1, 8 times
lower than in Europe and 1, 5 - than in post-Soviet space.
Most doctors in Georgia work
in Tbilisi, while the regions see a deficit.
In 2016, the number of doctors
in Georgia amounted to 24,082, while
nurses - 36,595, excluding dentistry - 27,851.
At the same time Georgian

and Azerbaijan and 5 times less than in the Baltic States and Germany.
The study also showed that in
2016, a total of 684 students per 100
000 population received a medical degree, which is 2 times more than the
average for Europe and the CIS states.
