Abstract

Rural healthcare workers in the Mandi District face unique challenges in providing quality care due to mountainous terrain and lack of supplies. This project evaluated the existing system of communication between health centers and identified areas in which the system could be improved to mitigate the effects of these challenges. We recommended a new system for medical stock requests and deliveries which could decrease delays by up to fifteen days and ultimately improve the quality of care for patients.
