Title: Health care design: Middle East rural areas
Authors: Khalaileh, Musa I.A.
Issue Date: 1983

Abstract: A study of healthcare problems in developing countries in particular the Middle East. It concerns child health care and the inability of rural people especially mothers to understand instructions for the application of medicines. Other problems incorporated are high infant mortality, lack of adequate health care facilities, high illiteracy and ignorance of the importance of hygiene. As a result of my questionnaire to medical students in Jordan, the extent to which they are trained to cope with child health care and health problems of rural areas was revealed. Another questionnaire aimed at female university students revealed their attitudes towards pregnancy and child healthcare. Bearing in mind the nature of the Middle Eastern patient, I have adopted a visual design for reading medicine instructions which is very easy to understand and overcomes any language or literacy problems.
