The purpose of this publication is to give a general description of the problems facing the Northwest South Dakota area in providing medical and health services and to analyze some of the factors affecting the future demand for such services and the supply of resources available for meeting that demand. With this information, policy makers and rural community leaders will have a better basis for making relevant decisions on the coordination of health services within their area to provide accessibility to health services at the least possible cost, consistent with desired quality standards.
