India is said to have low doctor: patient ratio. But the distribution is not the same across the states. For example, the state of Bihar has about four teaching hospitals where as in Bangalore, capital city of Karnataka, there are about seven teaching hospitals(institutions). Overall the density of doctors and healthcare facilities is better in southern states. I am searching(sic!) but have not yet found the info graphic illustrating the healthcare differences of various states and places within India. This would really change the way state of healthcare in India is perceived.on Nov 7, 2013
