In the Kamand region of Himachal Pradesh, the healthcare challenges of rural communities are unique due to difficult terrain, distance between health-centres, and disease patterns. This project assessed the public healthcare infrastructure’s ability, in terms of quantity and quality, to cope with these challenges. Our assessment revealed three bottlenecks in service delivery: inadequate supplies, lack of specialists, and inaccessibility of facilities. Based on our analysis, we recommended changes to the system that might improve public access to quality medical care.
