"South Africa urgently needs an able and motivated workforce for its rural health services. We can no longer build a crucial health programme on the use of imported workers. We need a coherent strategy to strengthen rural health care. Curriculum development towards a degree for rural specialists forms an integral part of this strategy. We now have a golden opportunity, and should build on international experience in rural health to develop a strategy which will address the needs of our country."
