Rural Health

Rural communities face unique challenges to accessing quality health care and implementing sustainable policies to improve health outcomes. Many public health strategies that flourish in urban settings are not immediately relevant or possible in rural environments. The Public Health Institute is committed to advancing rural health infrastructure and improving health outcomes by developing new technologies and implementing best practices in rural health policy and programming. Our rural health work focuses on improving access for low-income rural patients to health clinics, advancing adolescent sexual and reproductive health programs, developing strategies to reduce chronic and infectious diseases, tracking and mitigating the impacts of climate change in rural settings, and ensuring equitable health outcomes across rural communities in both the U.S. and across the globe, including low-income and elderly populations.
