PLANNING FOR RURAL HEALTH SERVICES.
CHAPMAN, A.L.
THE RURAL POPULATION HAS BEEN SHIFTING TOWARD THE URBAN CENTERS OF OUR COUNTRY. SOME EVIDENCE INDICATES A REVERSAL OF THIS SITUATION IN THE NEAR FUTURE. INDUSTRY IS MOVING AWAY FROM THE CITIES TO AVOID WATER POLLUTION, TRAFFIC CONGESTION, AND HIGHER OPERATIONAL COSTS. PLANNED CITIES WHICH INCLUDE COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH PLANS ARE BEING CONSTRUCTED IN SOME AREAS. THESE HEALTH SERVICES ARE THE KIND WHICH SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR THE RURAL POPULATION. SOME OF THE HEALTH OBJECTIVES FOR RURAL AREAS SHOULD INCLUDE--(1) HIGHER INCOME LEVELS AND EQUAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, (2) ADEQUATE PREVENTATIVE MEASURES, EMERGENCY CARE, AND REHABILITATION SERVICES, (3) HEALTH EDUCATION, (4) TRAINING FACILITIES FOR ALL TYPES OF HEALTH PERSONNEL, AND (5) ADEQUATE RESEARCH. TO ACHIEVE THESE GOALS, THERE SHOULD BE A LOCALLY CONCEIVED HEALTH PLAN DESIGNED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK CONFERENCE ON RURAL YOUTH, OCTOBER 23-26, 1967, WASHINGTON, D. C., SPONSORED JOINTLY BY THE U. S. DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, EDUCATION AND WELFARE, INTERIOR, AND LABOR, OEO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S COUNCIL ON YOUTH OPPORTUNITY. (ES)
