Primary health care in India continues to lack ample resources in providers, equipment, and infrastructure to offer effective and efficient care. People in villages continue to live in poor conditions with minimal healthcare facilities. Doctors usually fear that rural postings distance them geographically from their families, professional colleagues and academic environment, and lower their professional standing. Unsatisfactory working conditions, lack of adequate staff and equipment, and primitive living conditions add to the list of factors that distract doctors from practicing medicine in rural locations. With a proper attitude; however, doctors can contribute in multiple ways, even in such settings.
