South African Rural Medical Practice - A Photographic Journy
The Rural Healthcare Initiative is a programme designed to support healthcare in the rural areas. its focus is on patients and equity in healthcare for rural and disadvantaged communities. The health services in these areas are currently dealing with the HIV/AIDS epidemic as well as malaria, tuberculosis and malnutrition.
There are two candles flickering in the rural areas. One is for the rural patient and the other for the rural health worker. They both need your help. We need doctors and healthcare workers of all disciplines. If you are interested in this challenging work, contact [email protected] or for further information log onto Rural Health Initiative .
