Reaching Rural Populations

Setup

In thinly populated regions that stretch over vast territories, primary care is often a long journey from home and specialty services may be completely out of reach. Access to care in some isolated communities may be further complicated by cultural or language barriers, limited transportation networks, and poverty. But advocates working in the rural space are talking solutions, not problems – local empowerment, communication technology, hub-and-spoke models that link primary care providers to specialists, and greater resource commitments are among the strategies bringing more care to historically underserved areas.
