Health Disparities and the Role of Government in the Developing Countries - An Ethnographic Study
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
This study explores the nature of health disparities in the developing countries. Specifically, it examines the role of government in addressing inequality of healthcare services in rural Bangladesh. Factors influencing health disparities and inequalities are tied to knowledge, attitude, and health behavior of using public healthcare services and community health interventions. Participant observation and ethnographic surveys of the population were conducted to evaluate data and to develop a comprehensive view of perceptions about use of healthcare, water, and sanitation services. The findings will be helpful to the healthcare personnel, non-governmental organizations, funding agencies and policy makers of the developing world.
