Описанные проблемы организации оказания медицинской помощи в сельских районах 
очень важные.Ведущие ученые Центра Управления и экспертизы качества медицинской помощи "Международная академия инновационных технологий здравоохранения" г.Самара на основании квалиметрического анализа установили,что качество организации медицинской помощи в сельских районах существенно отличается от городских на 15%-20%.Это касается в основном социально-значимым заболеваний.Имеет место,как правило, повышенная заболеваемость и смертность среди мужского населения.
