      And rural areas everywhere are faced with a chronic lack of access to care. The problem has been gestating for decades, with complex origins and no simple solutions. Research has documented a higher prevalence and burden of chronic disease in rural areas, 7,8 perhaps due to rural–urban disparities in both the exposure to risk factors for chronic disease, and in access to relevant healthcare services and CDM resources. 6,9 Research has also shown that rural people experience stigma associated with health.

    American Journal of Public Health (AJPH) from the American Public Health Association (APHA) CHRONIC ILLNESS IN A RURAL AREA (Vol. III) | AJPH | Vol. 50 Issue 7 CHRONIC ILLNESS IN A RURAL AREA (Vol. III), an article from American Journal of Public Health, Vol 50 Issue 7.   The target population of this review was adults (> 18 years of age) with specific chronic conditions (congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, wounds, and chronic disease/multimorbidities) who live in rural and remote areas.

      In rural areas where rates of disease are high and doctors are scarce, the alternative of telehealth is often stymied by spotty broadband connections.   A chronic illness is one that lasts for a long period of time and typically cannot be cured. It is, however, sometimes treatable and manageable.
