Tehran, Jan. 22 – Iran has nearly 16,000 unemployed doctors and general practitioners, according to the head of Iran's General Practitioners Association.

"Nearly 16,000 graduated general practitioners are either unemployed or working in other professions throughout the country", Hossein Hoveida said in an interview with a hardline state-run news agency.

"The medical society is facing countless problems, most importantly in their professions. This educated section of society invested a lot in their education, but are suffering from unemployment", he added.

Hoveida demanded that the government take responsibility for the "existing social crisis" and help such doctors and GPs since they were responsible for the health of the nation.

He said that government loans given to a small percentage of such GPs only cover a seventh of the amount needed to support them in developing their own practices.
