According to watchtutorials, Bhutan is a small, landlocked nation located in the eastern Himalayas between India and China. It has a population of around 754,000 people, making it one of the smallest countries in Asia. The majority of the population are of Bhutanese origin, with other ethnicities such as Nepalese and Indian making up a small percentage. Bhutan is predominantly Buddhist, with 75% of its citizens following the religion. Hinduism is also widely practiced in Bhutan, with 20% of its population identifying as Hindu. The literacy rate in Bhutan is relatively high at 64%, with much effort being put into education throughout the country. In recent years, primary and secondary education has become free and compulsory for all children aged 5-16 years old. This has resulted in an increase in educational attainment levels among citizens aged 15-24 from 68% to 82%. The life expectancy in Bhutan stands at 68 years for men and 72 years for women. The country has seen considerable improvements over recent decades due to advances in healthcare and improved access to nutrition. Malnutrition remains a challenge however, particularly among rural populations who often lack access to nutritious food sources. Additionally, Bhutan faces challenges related to environmental degradation from overgrazing and deforestation which can have a detrimental effect on air quality and public health outcomes.
