Low-Cost Rural Health Care and Health Manpower Training. An Annotated Bibliography with Special Emphasis on Developing Countries. Volume 1.
The annotated bibliography attempts to coordinate information on nontraditional health care delivery systems in remote regions of the world, especially in developing countries. The literature abstracted focuses primarily on new models of health care delivery and on the training and utilization of auxiliary health workers. It is intended to be helpful in planning, operating, and evaluating rural health services and in training personnel to staff such systems. The volume is the first of an intended multivolume bibliography to be produced irregularly on various approaches to health care taken throughout the world. Its scope includes material on the following subjects: (1) planning, financing, organization, and evaluation of rural health care systems; (2) the impact of health care services on social and economic indexes; (3) the relationship between health care systems and other community organizations; and (4) staffing of health care systems. The entries are arranged into the five broad categories of reference works, organization and planning, primary health care--implementation, primary health manpower--training and utilization, and formal evaluative studies which will remain the same throughout all volumes. Items relevant to more than one section are cross-referenced. (Author/NJ)
