Abstract: A stimulating analysis, based on country studies, of innovative methods of delivering primary health care to populations, particularly in rural areas. The book has ten chapters. The first describes the approach taken in India to integrating a traditional system of medicine, the Ayurveda system, into the health services as a whole. The remaining chapters fall into three groups. Chapters in the first group consider experiences in countries characterized by far-reaching changes at the national level, as in China, Cuba, and Tanzania. The second group, which includes Iran, Niger, and Venezuela, shows how changes have been made through an extension of the existing system. The final group is characterized by community development in limited local areas of Guatemala, India, and Indonesia
