Why Medical Aid in the Agricultural Sector?
The unique obstacles faced by the farming community in accessing healthcare services necessitated the creation of a dedicated, tailor-made medical aid service that constantly studies and appropriately responds to the day to day medical needs of the agricultural industry.
The Agricultural Medical Aid Society was created by the Grain Marketing Board to meet this challenge.
The importance of healthcare funding in the Agriculture Sector
As the economy goes through the various stages of economic transformation, the nation needs to invest in the education and health of agricultural people. Primary health care provision for rural people is vital for economic progress for two reasons. First is the objective to have healthier people in the farming community, so as to maintain and improve their production capacity thereby contributing more to the National Gross Domestic Product. Secondly the cost to families, relatives and employers is lower when rural inhabitants provide social security to families than when the fewer urban workers have to carry the burden of supporting rural family members.
