Abstract


Good quality social and health services, accessible to all communities, be they in the rural or urban area, are the nucleus of an autonomous life for the community members  and the development of the community health care  network must offer a real answer to the existing needs of the community. The present paper compares the differences in health status and distribution of health services, in two of Romania’s regions, West and Centre, with a focus on primary care and coverage with nurses and health mediators. The analysis revealed inequalities in the distribution of services, bigger in the Western region, especially regarding primary care services.

 

Keywords: community health care,  Central and Western development regions, average number of inhabitants/health unit, access to health services
