Health, Higher Education and the Community. Towards a Regional Health University.
The fields of health and higher education must bring a wide scope and diversity of approach to the development of a model for a regional health university. The objective of such a university would be that the training of health personnel, research work, health education, preventive medicine, and health care delivery can be adapted to the health requirements of regional communities. Health is a relative and subjective concept, dependent on the level of socioeconomic development and the capacity of the individual and community to tolerate disease or infirmity. Industrialization requires that greater allowance be made for the psychological and social aspects of health. The optimum operational unit for health care is the region. The regional health university represents an extended function for higher and would give higher education institutions a greater and more responsible part to play in promoting the social, economic, and cultural development of their particular region.
