Delivering A Global Virtual Practice Of Medicine

Donald William Kuk

Because of the global economic, quality of life and life
expectancy compromises resulting from the current increasing
shortage of physicians, health care and health
sciences professionals, the World Health Organization
(WHO) now analyzes and publishes a globally modeled
and verified standard for Worldwide Physician Shortage.
As of February 2019, this shortage now exceeds 4.3 million
physicians, nurses and health care professionals, and
is tragically acute in rural areas away from major population
centers, and in underdeveloped nations. This shortage
is most critically acute in Africa which at the same
time, is experiencing the most rapid population growth
creating the perfect storm for increasingly tragic and
despirate health outcomes.
