[201] Guatemala has about 16,000 doctors for its 16 million people about half the ration the WHO recommends. [202] Since the end of the Guatemalan Civil War in 1997 the Ministry of Health has extended healthcare access to 54% of the rural population. [203] Healthcare has received different levels of support from different political administrations who disagree on how best to manage distribution of services - via a private or a public entity - and the scale of financing that should be made available. [203] As of 2013 [update] the Ministry of Health lacked the financial means to monitor or evaluate its programs.
