Telemedicine faces many hurdles

“Despite a stable political environment and increasing levels of social and economic development, our health sector still lags behind in terms of telemedicine compared to their counterparts in developed countries.
This is largely attributed to the limited budget ratio, coupled with the healthcare sector being over stretched due to the crisis in the health worker force. Today, the doctor to patient ratio stands at 1:10,000 meaning that one doctor handles 10,000 people. This grim picture becomes real in rural areas where many health facilities lack qualified medical personnel to attend to them.”
