Government programs to effect disease surveillance and treatment do exist, such as for tuberculosis, yet proper implementation is often lacking, especially in rural regions. The foremost limitation is a real shortage of health care providers coupled with inequitable concentration of resources, of both manpower and infrastructure. The general lack of objective health data makes informed or targeted disease prevention difficult, especially in the context of limited resources. Creation of a health care infrastructure in rural settings, its compactness will make it suitable for use in urban slums, an option that is being explored.
