image for Doctors Numbers Rise in Guinea-Bissau
"Things are getting better"

New York - The president of Guinea-Bissau, one of the world's poorest countries, was proud to announce to the United Nations that "The number of doctors per capita in the country has risen steadily over the past decade."

President Bunmi Olubumni says this is real proof that progress is being made in the small West-African country.

"We are well on our way to improving health care and the standard of living for all our people."

Officials from the World Health Organization say that while the numbers of doctors in Guinea-Bissau has not increased over the past decade the steady rise in the numbers of doctors per capita can be explained by a steady decline in population due to disease, war, corruption, lack of an economy and a non-existant health-care system.
