  Scope of the journal

Rural health or rural medicine is the interdisciplinary study of health and health care delivery in rural and remote habitat. The concept of rural medicine integrates disciplines such as geography, midwifery, nursing, sociology, economy, telehealth, or telemedicine. People in rural areas generally have poor access to healthcare than their urban. Fewer healthcare professionals, medical practitioners, mental health programs, and healthcare facilities in these areas often mean low quality of care and often nonexistent emergency service. For rural residents to have sufficient access, necessary and appropriate healthcare services must be available and obtainable on time. Poor health constitutes suffering and deprivation of the most fundamental kind. Rural habitat poses a severe disadvantage to the rural population in terms of access to healthcare services. Only a comprehensive approach can address these inequities arising from inadequate healthcare systems.

The lack of healthcare workers has resulted in unconventional healthcare delivery to rural dwellers, including innovative and exceptional procedural interventions and medical consultations by phone digital means. Attracting health professionals to isolated locations need incentives for rural practice.

Surgery is increasingly becoming an integral part of public health and health systems development worldwide. Such surgical care should be provided at the same type and level in both urban and rural settings. However, the provision of necessary surgery in remote and rural areas of developed and low and middle-income countries remains inadequate and poses significant challenges. Rural and remote surgery is a multidisciplinary domain involving General Surgeons, Anesthetists, Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Dental Surgeons, Nursing professionals, Healthcare technicians, Public Health Professionals, Physicians, and Surgeons.

JSSRP facilitates multidisciplinary research, education, training, and education of surgical specialties and rural practice.
