Improved Maternal and Child Health Care Access in a Rural Community.
Carcillo, Joseph A.; And Others
Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved, v6 n1 p23-40 1995
Describes an underserved rural community in which health care initiatives increased access to comprehensive care. Over a 3-year period, increased accessibility to maternal and child health care also increased use of preventive services, thus decreasing emergency room visits and hospitalizations as well as low birth weight, risk of congenital syphilis and childhood tuberculosis, and child mortality.
