Rural healthcare in a pandemic

In this episode of the podcast we ’re going to be talking about rural healthcare - and specifically the difficulties that distance, demographics, and funding have introduced into the world’s covid-19 response. Rural regions made vulnerable by limited healthcare infrastructure, lower rates of vaccination, and opposition to gover nment policies are the new frontlines in the pandemic, but support systems have not adjusted to the growing rural needs for health education, testing, vaccination, and treatment.Michael Forster Rothbart, Kata Kar áth, and Lungelo Ndhlovu report from the US, Ecuador, and Zimbabwe
