I agree to the terms and conditions
The disease is same whether urban or ruralso no need of a degree adiploma in rural health care should be started and salaries should be more than their counter parts.And the rurals will get specialist treatment as they are diploma holders after graduation

Any specific degree is not a solution for reaching the rural population,when we have number of MBBS doctors without any job.Govt should give more incentives to the already struggling doctors for servong the rural people.Body of an individual is same whether he resides an urban or rural area.this degree is not going to teach anything special for rural humans.we should strengthen the already existing system.

Excellent proposal to cater the needs of rural population. Its an irony that till date rural patients do not get adequate medical care in villages due to ground realities like not having roads or electricity or other baisic necessities and the doctors are more obssessed with the urban area lifestyles.

I think the number of medicos already passing out each year is sufficient to satisfy the healthcare demand of our country including rural areas.
Instead of investing on starting a new course, Govt. should increase the payment of docters appointed in rural areas!

Admit it,you cannot build more primary health care centres along the length and breadth of the country and make quality health care accesible to the needy poor becouse the politicians ,beaurocrats,contractors,businessmen,middlemen , all want to loot the nation of its resources,therefore the paucity of funds. Go ahead destroy the health of the country.
