About the Book :

Regional planning for health care facilities is a holistic solution provided by focusing on the type of facilities most suitable for the physical and socio-economic environment in which facilities are to be established and utilized. Such procedure combines environmental features and performance characteristics of potential facility types and its location in the region. Thus regional planning of health care facilities put greater emphasis on health care needs of the population at the local level taking into account the behavioural, preventive and accessibility dimensions. The book makes an in-depth study of spatial patterns of health care development in the State of Jammu and Kashmir. Describing the physiographic set-up of Jammu and Kashmir, it examines various demographic, social, cultural and economic conditions prevailing in the state.
