Japan's prisons suffering serious doctor shortage
The Japan Times-2015/05/19 (日本)

Japan is suffering from a serious shortage of correctional doctors, who provide medical care at facilities such as prisons and reformatories.
The Abe administration has submitted a bill to the Diet to improve working conditions for such doctors, but officials are uncertain whether the proposed measures will provide a full solution to the chronic shortage.
There were 252 correctional doctors as of Feb. 1, compared with the 327 the government says are required to meet current needs.
Of the 158 correctional institutions that should have doctors, 34 currently have none, according to the Justice Ministry.
Salary gaps with the private sector have been cited as a major factor. A survey in 2012 found that the monthly salary of a 50-year-old correctional doctor was about ¥230,000 lower than that of a 41-year-old doctor at a private institution.
