The main purpose of creating a new cadre of health professionals in rural areas is because many doctors were not willing to serve in these areas.

According to The Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, the proposed course is likely to be introduced in the states that are willing to adopt it from academic 2013-14. This new cadre of health professionals in community health programmes will boost the rural medicare infrastructure in the country.

This course will be a three-and-a -half-year Bachelor of Rural Healthcare course, BSc (Community Health), and those that successfully complete this course can seek employment as Community Health Officers (CHOs) in rural India.
