Keywords:Health Projects, Rural areas, Underserved communities, Stakeholder engagement, Students efforts
In developing countries, especially where a large proportion of the population still resides in rural areas, healthcare access and delivery are often poor, and can potentially benefit from innovative service models and supporting technologies. In these rural areas, the challenges of healthcare quality are many, ranging from poor infrastructure, low literacy, poverty, to inadequate monitoring of patients with chronic or serious diseases. The myriad of challenges requires innovative solutions that are affordable, robust and sustainable over time. Engaging stakeholders, policy makers, and empowering the community leaders to take the lead of addressing their own health problems and planning managing them are of the main objectives of the rural field training program offered by the University of Gezira and aims to raise the community awareness and address the main health issues that facing the community it serves.
