Rural Health Care

Rural Health Care is Health care or discipline focusing on diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness and other physical and mental impairments in humans in rural areas. It is usually carried out by medical practitioners and other care providers. It can also be referred as the work done to provide primary, secondary and tertiary care to the public. Rural health or rural medicine is the study of health and health care delivery in rural environments. The field of study comprising rural health includes the geography, midwifery, nursing, sociology, economics, and telemedicine. The term "rural" can be defined by various ways such as by population density, by geographic location or other factors. In Most rural communities, elderly people and children comprises the larger proportion thereby resulting in a higher dependency ratio. Rural people are also suffering from poorer socio-economic conditions, less education, higher rates of tobacco and alcohol use, higher mortality rates than the urban counterparts. Since in most of the developing countries rural population exceeds the urban ones so rural health care plays a very important role in improving the countries overall health condition. The rural health can be improved by a well-functioning health care system having a robust financing mechanism; a well-trained and adequately-paid workforce; reliable information on which to base decisions and policies; and well maintained facilities and logistics to deliver quality medicines and technologies.
