Do the doctors not know how to solve it, don't have the money/capabilities to solve it, or is there something else? Aaaannnd... 1000 new doctors a year for over a billion people... that doesn't seem like ENOUGH to me. If you figure the average doctor practices for 30 years, and that 1000 new doctors are produced a year, you still have over 33 thousand people for every doctor.... I dunno, just my thoughts.
edit: well, I guess you said thousands, but 2000 or 3000 doctors wouldn't change my math a whole lot. There still don't seem to be enough.
