Formatted Abstract/Summary The first key concept underpinning this research was the concept of equity.
The WHO goal of Health for All upholds the right of every person to a healthy life.( WHO, 1985;
WHO, 1998).
Equitable access to health care services, implying a fair distribution of health care to all people, is
an important factor in achieving a healthy life (Whitehead, 1990).
Therefore, governments and health service providers need to adopt policies and strategies to
promote equity in health. (WHO, 1998).
Any factor which prevents fair distribution of health care services to people is called a barrier.
Barriers relate to
socioeconomic status (people not being able to afford health care),
geographical (distance, distance decay, transport),
service provision (location of health services, types of services available),
physical and cultural factors (accessibility of buildings, cultural sensitivity of service provider,
services being perceived as appropriate by rural residents).
