Transferability of the Rural Hospital Project


The Rural Hospital Project (RHP) assisted six threatened rural hospitals in the WAMI region through a multifaceted approach to addressing their problems and strengthening health services. Subsequently, the RHP interventions were applied through a Community Health Services Development Model to other rural hospitals throughout the regional Area Health Education Centers (AHECs). This study examined the process of exporting the interventions from a university-based demonstration project to a community-based program disseminated by the AHECs.
