Khaled Ait Taleb, Minister of Health and Social Protection, revealed the constraints and challenges facing the health system in Morocco over the past years, which have accumulated to a large and disturbing extent, according to estimates from the Ministry of Health, which showed disturbing and frightening numbers.

The Minister linked the acute shortage of doctors in the Moroccan health system, which has reached 34,000 male and female doctors, to the weakness of training centers in medical colleges that produce a limited number of graduate students annually, which is not commensurate with the requirements of the health system.

Khaled Ait Talib concluded his speech by saying, “There should not be a barrier to those wishing to move abroad, but rather there must be incentive and attraction in our country, and we must open the doors to those who wish to come to Morocco to strengthen the health system and work in it.”
