Health Care in Rural Areas
The book on Health Care in Rural Areas is a recent addition to the list of books on Health Economics. The book discusses various health care systems prevailing in India, particularly in rural areas and the preference of people towards them. It also explains health problems of the rural people. The diseases, that affect people may be communicable or non-communicable or water-related or air-related or others. Health care expenditure is influenced by various factors such as income, education and health condition. Good health reduces health expenditure on health care services. The aged, the educated and the affluent spend more on health care. A country’s health condition is indicated by its health indicators such as infant mortality, under-five child mortality, child mortality, maternal mortality, death rate and life expectancy at birth. All these are discussed in this book. Thus, this book is unique in nature, covering a wide range of issues related to health. The book is the report of the UGC funded major project on Health Care in Rural Areas in a Human Rights Perspective with Special Reference to Kanyakumari and Tirunelveli Districts completed by Dr J. Cyril Kanmony, Associate Professor of Economics, Scott Christian College (Autonomous), Nagercoil.
